Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the economy of all the countries in the world took a major hit and the developed countries are no exception to it. Most of the developed countries have experienced the economic crisis for the first time due to the brutal attack of an invisible microorganism.
Due to the lockdown, most of the poor people in all countries lost their employment and are starving with hunger. Dubai, which is said to be one of the richest countries is also experiencing this impact and now, they have decided to deal with the situation in an innovative way.
To give the food for the poor people who are starving with hunger, the UAE has launched an interesting scheme. They have launched the World’s Tallest Donation Box on Saturday in a collaboration between the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) and the Burj Khalifa.
The Burj Khalifa was decorated with 12 lakhs of LED bulbs and to lighten one LED bulb on that building one has to donate 2.7 dollars. For every light purchased for Dh10 through the website www.tallestdonationbox.com, one meal is provided to someone in need, as part of the UAE’s social efforts to support the most vulnerable against the economic and humanitarian challenges posed by the global pandemic. Amazing isn’t it?
