The UAE has introduced free bread vending machines in many parts of the country as part of a 'Bread for All' initiative.
Lower income group families will be able to get free bread at various times of the day, according to the country's news agency WAM.
How can one not love the UAE and it’s leaders who never stop to think about the people of UAE. Thank you @HHShkMohd for this initiative. This just lifted my spirit & inspired me. Gave me intense pride in being a resident of a society that cares. pic.twitter.com/Rkk4ioPhsp— Fakhr-e-Alam (@falamb3) September 19, 2022
The Mohammed bin Rashid Global Centre for Endowment Consultancy (MBRGCEC), under the Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation (AMAF), announced the launch of the bread vending machine under the Bread for All initiative.
The vending machines have been placed at Aswaaq supermarkets in Al Mizhar, Al Warqaa, Mirdif, Nad Al Sheba, Nadd Al Hamar, Al Qouz, and Al Badaa.
People will be able to select their choice of bread, which will be prepared fresh for them every time.
The machines don't charge for the bread, but instead, run on donations.
Donations can be made directly at the machine or through the Dubai Now app.
