After the tragic explosion in Beirut in August, some of Dubai’s most popular restaurants came together to raise funds to help those affected.


The Initiative “Save Beirut” which took place on Sunday 30th August raised a grand total of 1,171,686 AED.


This huge sum was the result of 84 restaurants including Gaia, Zuma, Shanghai Me, LPM and The Maine joining forces along with delivery platforms, fast-food outlets, cafés and casual concepts for this important cause.


The initiative brought Dubai’s hospitality industry and the entire ecosystem together to support the important cause and celebrate the influence of the Lebanese culture and the impact it has on the sector.


The team behind the campaign expressed their sincere thanks and gratitude for the overwhelming response. The impressive amount of participating venues, partners that invested their time, products and expertise, incredible exposure across the mass media, outdoor advertising and across all digital platforms; as well as every donation, booking, and order.
