Well of Hope: A Humanitarian Initiative by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashed

Published

Around 844 million individuals around the globe have no access to clean water, and with the climate change we’re facing, this number is expected to rise unless countries start to take some serious action to help limit this or better yet eliminate the issue.

The ‘Well of Hope’ initiative thrives to do so; by bringing clean drinking water to those in need all over the world. The initiative is launched by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashed, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

The initiative works on bringing together both the public and private sectors; to help combat water scarcity. It is a collective effort from the government and private entities to ensure that those in need for clean water get access for it.

The project will take place during the holy month of Ramadan, and will include workers from twenty authorities and businesses pumping water through a digital device. A fair amount of the water pumped will be given to the less fortunate, by the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives.

Those interested in taking part of such a great initiative, can apply by using the hashtag #Wellofhope.

“The aim is to remind people of the great value of water and demonstrate the difficulties hundreds of millions face to get access to water. Small gestures can make a big difference to ourselves before others.”

Such a humanitarian campaign will surely contribute in highlighting worldwide water scarcity concerns, and turn the attention of people and organization towards the issues that matter.

It is indeed going to be a blissful month!

Gwyneth PaltrowKate Hudson and Zoe Saldana, all of these Hollywood giants have been featured in the latest campaign video of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM) and the teasing videos look epic!

Three teasers have launched with the title A Story Takes Flight on Youtube, showing the leading ladies Gwyneth, Kate and Zoe exploring the Old Town of Dubai all the way to its desert.

“One of my favorite parts of traveling is to truly connect with a city, its people and the local culture,” says Gwyneth Paltrow, “Dubai is special because it’s a melting pot. Both the ones born here, who are so proud of their heritage, and those who are recent transplants, bringing with them their own values and traditions, contribute to writing the future story of the city. My time in Dubai was beyond anything I expected and there’s still so much more to see.”

“The variety Dubai gave me was perfect. I went from riding horses at sunrise to watching the sunset from 150 meters in the sky. I can’t wait to bring my boys here to continue the adventure.” Zoe Saldana says in her video.

While Kate Hudson said in a statement, “honestly, I was so grateful for the hospitality I received. I spent a lot of time exploring the winding streets of Old Dubai.”

“It’s incredible to find such a vibrant art and music community in the heart of such a modern, futuristic city – which is what most people think Dubai is. But really, the friendliness of the people is what made my visit amazing, and it’s why I’ll come back.” She added.

We can’t wait to see the rest of the campaign, especially with those teasers showing potential and looking promising.
