Gulf News

Dubai: Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, wife of the Prime Minister of Malaysia and First Lady, paid a visit to the International Humanitarian City (IHC) during her tour of Dubai this week.

The Malaysian delegation comprised dignitaries from the Office of the Malaysian Prime Minister and the General Consulate of Malaysia in Dubai.

The IHC organised a tour of its warehouses, where the First Lady and the Malaysian delegation were accompanied by Shaima Al Zarouni, IHC CEO, and UN member-organisations’ representatives. The guests had the chance to observe current and ongoing operations for shipments of aid to the affected 13 million people in typhoon-hit Philippines.

With the recent crisis in Philippines that has left millions of people in need of urgent medical relief, and over four million displaced, many international aid agencies operating from IHC in Dubai have been running aid shipment operations, and several of the organisations are collaborating with branches in Malaysia.
