Dubai Tourism has participated in the ‘Well of Hope’ initiative by pumping 12,210 litres of water ‘virtually’ with the help of a mobile interactive device.
Well of Hope was established with the objective of giving hope to millions of less fortunate people around the world. As part of the initiative, teams participated in an interactive competition by using a device that virtually simulates the pumping of large volumes of water. The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) will donate the equivalent volume of the water that was pumped virtually into the machine to people living in remote areas, with a focus on alleviating the suffering of those in dire need of access to clean water.
According to published statistics, more than 844 million people around the world do not have access to clean water, which represents one out of 10 people on the planet.
