DUBAI, 15th April, 2023 (WAM) -- First Security Group announced a contribution of AED 1 million in support of the“1 Billion Meals Endowment” campaign, launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to establish the largest Ramadan sustainable food aid endowment fund.
