The Knowledge E Foundation, a registered community interest company, continued its tradition of giving back during the holy month of Ramadan by donating to two organisations fighting hunger around the world.
The foundation, as well as members of the Knowledge E team, made significant contributions to the UAE’s 1 Billion Meals Endowment and the World Food Programme, both of which work towards providing food assistance to those in need.
Nearly one billion people, including children, are experiencing the devastating effects of the global food crisis, which has worsened in recent years due to soaring inflation, climate extremes, conflict, and the COVID-19 pandemic. The United Nations’ World Food Programme aims to make a difference by providing life-saving food assistance to vulnerable communities in over 120 countries and territories.
Similarly, the UAE’s 1 Billion Meals Endowment was launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to establish a food safety net for underprivileged populations worldwide. The Knowledge E Foundation’s contribution to the World Food Programme and the 1 Billion Meals Endowment is a testament to its commitment to support diverse causes and offer aid wherever possible.
Kamran R. Kardan, the founder of the Knowledge E Foundation, said: “Ramadan is a time for compassion and generosity, and our team, as well as the Knowledge E Foundation, exemplified these values by supporting the UAE’s 1 Billion Meals Endowment and the World Food Programme. However, we recognise that the fight against hunger and poverty is far from over, and the need for aid is ongoing. To create a world free of hunger, we have a moral obligation to come together and proactively help those in need through donations and philanthropic initiatives.”
Since its inception, the Knowledge E Foundation has supported and contributed to a wide range of causes, including funding education projects, building and renovating schools in remote areas, offering aid for disaster relief efforts, empowering research, and endorsing the movement towards Open Science. The foundation’s efforts have left a lasting positive impact on many countries around the world, including in Cambodia, Egypt, Malawi, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Senegal, and the UAE.
