10 Million Meals – level 1
The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world. It is in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is about 2,700 feet tall. It becomes a symbol of an important campaign.
The campaign is called ’10 Million Meals’. Dubai’s ruler has an idea. He wants to help people in the UAE. Many people in the UAE have problems. The coronavirus is in the UAE.
The campaign wants to give free meals to these people. In the last two weeks, people donate $3 million dollars. This is enough money for 1.2 million meals.
UAE officials are happy. The campaign shows that people want to help each other.
Difficult words: symbol (a thing that represents something), campaign (when someone does some things to reach a goal), donate (to give money to help other people).
