DUBAI, UAE, January 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Saahtain Foods, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, gave 15,000 Meals Ready to Eat (MREs) to the UAE Red Crescent. The UAE Red Crescent thanked Saahtain Foods for this unique and innovative donation of Tayyib Meals, a brand of Saahtain Foods especially designed for Humanitarian and Disaster Relief. An additional 5,000 meals were given to UAE Red Crescent on behalf of Darvesh Group as part of the group's Corporate Social Responsibility initiative to support the Tarahamu ("Show Compassion") campaign in UAE. Group Chairman Mr Darvesh said: "Feeding people in remote areas has been made possible by Tayyib Meals and we will carry on using these meals when we do our CSR initiative when feeding the needy."
10,000 Meals are being sent on behalf of a leading UK charity to Turkey for the Syrian refugees. This will be the third winter and about 2.8 million registered Syrian refugees, including over 1.4 million children, refugee families live in lightweight tents under subzero temperatures. Hence, nutritional food must be the first priority.
"Food gives the refugees energy to fight disease and gather material to burn to keep warm," notes Zahra Mahmood, Director of Saahtain Foods. "Water supplies are strained in Jordan and Lebanon and people can't cook due to damp and cold conditions. An affordable, complete and effective solution is our Tayyib Ready to Eat Meal."
The Tayyib brand of MREs, produced by Saahtain Foods, are 100% Halal, 100% Natural, Highly nutritional meals with localized taste. It supports the International Humanitarian City's 2015-2021 strategy of change and innovation by making Dubai a hub for the humanitarian world. Specially manufactured in the UAE, the MRE are appreciated by the beneficiaries because they don't require cooking and there is no special requirement to store the meals.
