UAE In-Focus — $92.5 million disbursed to social assistance; DP World receives global vaccine logistics award

DUBAI: The government has disbursed $92.5 million (340 million dirhams) to recipients of social assistance across the country, in honor of Ramadan, according to Minister of Community Development, Hessa bint Essa Buhumaid.

The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has directed that 340 million dirhams be distributed to beneficiaries of social assistance across the country.

As part of the social assistance provided to all eligible categories in the nation, Sheikh Mohamed’s gesture is in addition to the monthly assistance provided to the recipients.

“The UAE leadership’s directives translate our endeavors to provide all forms of support and empowerment, to ensure a decent life for the beneficiaries and all segments of society,” Buhumaid said in a statement.

DP World receives global vaccine logistics award

The Vaccine Industry Excellence Awards 2022, held in Washington, DC, honored Dubai Properties World with the Best Logistics Technology & Cold Chain Delivery award, according to the Government of Dubai Media Office.

DP World received this award for its work over the last two years in addressing vaccine delivery challenges and supply chain bottlenecks.

Over the past 21 years, the World Vaccine Congress has evolved into the world’s leading vaccines congress, with a scientific advisory board to shape the agenda.

Group Chairman and CEO Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem said in a statement: “We must learn lessons from this pandemic to ensure equal and fair access to critical supplies, regardless of wealth or geography.”

The overcoming of these obstacles has relied heavily on technology and partnerships to pool expertise and resources. Global health, freedom of movement, and economic recovery are all hampered by the absence of a unified worldwide response.
