UAE Approves $544 Million Package To Repair Rain Damages

Posted by Kelt&corealty on April 25, 2024

The United Arab Emirates announced $544 mn to overhaul rain-hit damages. Last week, the Gulf country recorded a massive rain that caused widespread flooding and brought the state to a standstill. 

Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktourm said, “ We learned great lessons in dealing with severe rains.” He further informed about the approval of two billion dirhams to address the damages caused by rains, “two billion dirhams to deal with damage to the homes of citizens.”

Sheikh Mohammed, the ruler of Dubai, stated, “A ministerial committee was assigned to follow up on this file… and disburse compensation in cooperation with the rest of the federal and local authorities.”

The recent rainfall in the UAE was the heaviest ever recorded in the 75-year history of the country, leading to the tragic loss of at least four lives. However, official figures regarding this matter have yet to be closed.

Prominent Emirati analyst Abdulkhaleq Abdullah tweeted, “We must acknowledge… that there has been an unreasonable and unacceptable deficiency and collapse in services and crisis management.”

He further added, “We hope that this will not be repeated in the future.”

The UAE government worked hard to restore normalcy, and now it is striving to repair rain-based damages to the homes of Emirati citizens. The approval of $544 million is being considered an important step to mend homes and face challenges caused by recent calamities.

Earlier, Dubai developers have also announced a free repair service. They will repair the properties of people without any cost in order to serve their people. Emaar founder Mohammed Alabbar said in a statement, “I am pleased to announce that Emaar will undertake the repair of all properties within our communities that have been damaged by the recent rains at its own cost to ensure that our residents can return to their daily lives as swiftly and smoothly as possible.”
