The goal is to raise 10 million dirhams in funds…

It has been almost a month since a cataclysmic explosion rocked Beirut on August 4 and the people of UAE have already come together on several occasions to raise funds to help donate.

One such initiative is set to take place on Sunday August 30 which will see several restaurants, delivery platforms and fast-food outlets teaming up with the goal to raise 10 million dirhams in funds to help rebuild the city of Beirut.

But to do so, they need your help.

For every order made from 8am on August 30 to 3am on August 31 at participating venues, a percentage of each bill (ranging from 30% to 100%) will be donated to Beirut-based charities. Guests will also be given the option to add their own donation. The donations raised will be coordinated with the Emirates Red Crescent.

So, if you want to do your part and help out, make plans to dine or order at one of the participating restaurants or delivery platforms.
