Mumbai Indians had flown nine underprivileged children to Dubai during the Indian Premier League's UAE leg as part of the first step for this season's initiative. The children had the opportunity to meet and interact with their stars in the team and watch them in action at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
An initiative led by Mumbai Indians' owner Nita Ambani, the franchise is one of the first teams to recognise the potential of using its global fan base to enhance awareness about a compelling social issue and has found support amongst its fans and sponsors for the cause.
