Ya Beirut donation initiative in Majid Al Futtaim

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.
