Dubai Aid City collects huge relief

posted on 03/01/2005: 733 views



Around 40 tonnes of goods have been collected by the Dubai Aid City from various sectors of the community, most of which were contributions made by children. Cash donations have passed Dh800,000 and more are still expected.



Dubai Aid City is accepting donations in the form of cash, blankets, clothes, medical supplies, non-perishable food, and tents though at this stage, cash donations are mostly encouraged for the purchase of medical supplies. Donors are also welcome to send all kinds of antibiotics that have a minimum expiry date of six months. Crises areas are also in need of water purification tablets and rehydration tablets. The collection centre is now open until the end of January 5, 2005.



Dubai Aid City Emergency Collection Centre is an initiative that started at DAC with its clients network to serve the crises in South East Asia. Clients like UNICEF and UAE Red Crescent Society have joined hands towards serving the needs at the crises areas.



Dubai Aid City media and information centre is in touch with assessors on crises grounds to report the needs on daily basis. Through its network of volunteers, Dubai Aid City informs callers to the collection centre of the latest urgent requirements needed in Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Bangkok, and other affected regions.



Mobile units will start collecting donations from the community should anyone need help with logistics on Tuesday and Wednesday. Dubai Aid City is a non-profit government body that aims at facilitating operations for humanitarian organisations. Whether its media support, trainings support, emergency response, or procurement, Dubai Aid City through its services offers the solution to the humanitarian and relief aid community.
