August 17, 2020 | By RetailME Bureau

Majid Al Futtaim shopping malls support relief initiatives in Lebanon, with the launch of the ‘Ya Beirut’ donation drive in conjunction with Emirates Red Crescent to manage the distribution of donations in Lebanon.

Following the tragic explosion on August 4, the ‘Ya Beirut’ initiative will be set up across all Majid Al Futtaim shopping malls in the UAE to raise and collect donations, which will be distributed to Lebanese people in need, affected by the blast in Beirut.

Shoppers and visitors to Majid Al Futtaim shopping malls, as well as members of their respective wider communities, are urged to support the people of Lebanon by gifting all-important donations. These could range from clothes, electronics to non-perishable food items, books and toys.

Visitors will be able to find the donation boxes installed at various locations throughout Majid Al Futtaim shopping malls.

As Majid Al Futtaim shopping malls support relief initiatives in Lebanon, Fuad Mansoor Sharaf, managing director, Majid Al Futtaim Properties, Shopping Malls (UAE, Bahrain & Oman) said, “Majid Al Futtaim has been deeply moved and touched by the tragic events in Lebanon. We understand that these are incredibly testing times for Lebanese people across the world.

We are incredibly grateful for the support of Emirates Red Crescent in taking this initiative forward.”
