Dubai, UAE – 18, August, 2018 – Agility DGS helped the International Humanitarian City launch an awareness campaign in celebration of the 2018 World Humanitarian Day and in conjunction with the Year of Zayed. The celebrations included the launch of a mobile exhibition showcasing the humanitarian legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Founding Father of the UAE; it also featured the role of IHC Community in addressing humanitarian crisis and emergencies.
As one of the main sponsors of this event, and the premier logistics provider for humanitarian aid missions, Agility DGS, in partnership with Agility GIL, facilitated and provided an Agility truck that moved the container from IHC to the City Walk location.
The campaign was co-organized by members of International Humanitarian City representing UN Agencies and international humanitarian organizations, including the World Food Programme, Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders), as well as private sector suppliers to the humanitarian community Kuehne+Nagel, Allied, NRS International, and UPS.
In addition to providing the truck, Agility DGS will help execute all the container moves during the campaign in the UAE commencing in September 2018. This mobile unit will be transported around the country’s seven Emirates, visiting key locations and schools targeting students aged 12-17 years with an aim to engage the “hearts and minds” of youth in the country and reinforce the spirit of humanitarianism.
