MEBAA Fights World Hunger

 - October 23, 2013, 2:20 PM

At the sixth Middle East Business Aviation meeting in Dubai, Dec. 8-10, 2014, prepare for some changes. The meeting is moving to a new home at Dubai World Central at Al Maktoum International Airport, located near Jebel Ali, Dubai, which is the same location as next month’s Dubai Airshow (November 17-19).

Along with a new location, the Middle East Business Aviation Association (MEBAA), which hosts the event, is promoting the “Fly and Feed” initiative, in partnership with the World Food Programme. This initiative is designed to raise awareness of issues that concern the United Nations humanitarian agency, which organizes logistics, transportation and distribution of food in world emergencies.

“Fly and Feed is our way of contributing to the World Food Programme’s continuing efforts in fighting hunger across the globe,” said MEBAA’s founding chairman Ali Al Naqbi. More information about the program can be found at the MEBA show booth here (No. N2923).
