In the main city of the United Arab Emirates, Dubai, an unusual charity initiative has been launched.


The majestic building of one of the most expensive hotels in the world - Burj El Khalifa - is brightly lit. In fact, its entire surface is covered with luminous squares, each of which can be purchased by entering the tower's web page. One square costs ten dirhams (a little less than three dollars), which, by local standards, is quite enough for a full meal for one person.

Due to the purchases of luminous panels, the tower administration has already purchased one million two hundred thousand meals for the poorest layers of the local population affected by the economic crisis.

The entire Muslim world is now celebrating the holy month of Ramadan with strict fasting and prayers. The owners of the tower intend to help the disadvantaged by purchasing at least 10 million trays of food.

Such an initiative is understandable, as tens of thousands of workers from Third World countries have been living without income in Dubai hostels for more than a month, waiting for the opportunity return to local construction sites.

In addition to the lack of funds for subsistence, the very living conditions of these people are organized in such a way that it is impossible to avoid crowding, which only contributes to the rapid spread of COVID-19.
