Besides glass, 1.4 tonnes of emergency medical supplies were also sent to Beirut by another DI subsidiary, Globalpharma.

A shipment of high-quality glass from Dubai was recently sent to Beirut, Lebanon, to help repair 700 flats, homes and shops that were destroyed in the blasts earlier this month.

A humanitarian initiative by Dubai Investments (DI), the relief included several containers of glass that can replace hundreds of window panels that the massive explosion had shattered as it tore through the city and killed nearly 200 people.

The aid was arranged by the DI’s subsidiaries, Emirates Float Glass and Emirates Glass, and shipped in coordination with the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture of Beirut and Mount Lebanon.

Besides glass, 1.4 tonnes of emergency medical supplies were also sent to Beirut by another DI subsidiary, Globalpharma.

The relief package, which included medicines, sanitisers and face masks, aimed to support efforts to fight Covid-19 in Lebanon’s capital, help treat those wounded in the blast, and replenish the supplies that had been depleted because of the tragedy.

Khalid Bin Kalban, vice-chairman and CEO of Dubai Investments, said: “In line with the ‘UAE Volunteers’ campaign and the urgent national humanitarian initiative called ‘From UAE For Lebanon’, we are trying to make the best use of the resources through all our group companies to support and strengthen the Lebanese economy and its people. We shall continue to assess the situation and evaluate what additional assistance we can provide as a group.”
