Aid City will cut crisis response time

posted on 16/06/2003: 714 views



Dubai Aid City, a new facility being set up under the patronage of General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence, was formally announced yesterday. The fully integrated aid distribution and storage facility, designed and dedicated for use by the international aid community, will be located in the southern area of the Jebel Ali Free Zone. The new complex will seek to provide total solutions for local and international aid agencies, complete with pre-built warehousing, storage areas and office facilities.



The facility, expected to take approximately two years to complete, will provide international aid organisations an ideal logistical location from where to store, stockpile and distribute aid cargo via sea, land or air to locations around the world. The specific requirements of interested aid organisations and agencies are being taken into consideration during the design of the warehousing and office facilities, to include special requirements such as cool and cold storage facilities for sensitive food and medical supplies, in addition to dry cargo facilities.



Until its completion, aid agencies will be able to utilise warehousing, office facilities and distribution solutions at dedicated areas of Port Rashid and Jebel Ali port. The proposed complex will, besides, also host a museum dedicated to the history of aid relief, to cater to the growth of public interest in the work of aid relief agencies. (The Gulf News)
