It aims to mitigate the economic, social, and health challenges posed by this outbreak.
What is Dubai Chamber’s role?
The Chamber has made an initial pledge of AED 10 million and will be focusing on providing humanitarian and logistical assistance to blue collar labourers, who have finished their projects but have no financial means to go back home.
With the exceptional circumstances associated with the place and way of living of the construction workers, there are great challenges that go beyond the health dimension to include all areas of social, humanitarian and economic life in the emirate. Therefore, the Chamber strongly feels about supporting and assisting this working group, and protecting our society.
The Chamber will implement additional series of initiatives to encourage the private sector to play their part in mitigating the social, economic and health impact of Coronavirus.
