DP World spread cricket cheer amongst Akshaya Patra’s enthusiastic beneficiaries
On 29 April 2023, DP World hosted five mid-day meal beneficiaries from The Akshaya Patra Foundation for an exciting fan experience during Delhi Capitals match. His Excellency Dr Abdulnasser Alshaali, Ambassador of the UAE to India and DP World representative, joined the children and presented a donation cheque to the NGO to support the implementation of PM POSHAN Abhiyaan.
Earlier that week, 14 of Akshaya Patra’s beneficiaries met Delhi Capitals players Axar Patel, Mitchell Marsh, and Anrich Nortje as part of a special meet and greet session organised by DP World. The children had a fun-filled day interacting and playing garden cricket with the players at the ITC Maurya grounds.
Rizwan Soomar, CEO & MD India Subcontinent & Sub-Saharan Africa, DP World, said, “We are happy to partner with Akshaya Patra Foundation in strengthening their effort to provide millions of children in Delhi with wholesome mid-day meals. This aligns with our own endeavour of partnering with countries worldwide to ensure food security by connecting demand to supply, thereby reducing wastage wherever possible. We are extremely grateful to Delhi Capitals for enabling us to spend time and encouraging the children from Akshaya Patra Foundation to pursue their education and passion for sports with dedication.”
