Covid Crusaders is a student-led initiative aimed at helping those in Dubai who have been hit hardest by COVID19.

The students collect funds which are used to prepare warm meals that then get distributed to labour camps in distress.

This initiative is in conjunction with #Curry4COVID which is a partnership between Fathers And Kids Camping, Classic Catering, the KIDDO app, and the UAE Food Bank.

#Curry4COVID has so far delivered 23,000 warm meals to those in need.

Top 5 Ranking

There are now 23 schools from across Dubai taking part in the Covid Crusaders programme.

Here is the ranking of the top 5 schools with the largest number of participants:

The student with the highest number of meals secured so far is Nathan D'Cunha from Gems Wellington Academy.

Nathan has been putting all his allowance money towards paying for meals and also getting his family to purchase meals on his behalf. So far he has amassed 525 meals!

The students keep a log of the meals they secure and at the end of the programme they receive a certificate recognizing their community leadership effort.
