In line with the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai to transform Dubai into a Smart city, the International Humanitarian City (IHC) is pleased to announce the launch of its new website which coincides with GITEX Technology Week 2013. The new website has been updated from a regular electronic service to smart technology. The re-launch is now providing viewers with more thorough information about humanitarian activities.

IHC’s bi-lingual and user-friendly website offers members, media, the public and job applicants quick and easy access to essential information about the IHC as a Freezone authority as well as information on IHC’s past events and upcoming activities. New features include modified service applications as well as improved functionality, design and navigation.

Due to the many humanitarian crises and emergency response operations that take place from IHC premises, media agencies can extract the latest humanitarian emergency aid news based on IHC members’ daily activities. To promote awareness about the work of international humanitarian organizations, the website includes new communication tools linking viewers to IHC’s recently launched social networks and digital presence.

In addition, individuals and companies interested in pro bono projects and volunteer work can easily use the website’s applications that enable the information to be shared with IHC members including UN agencies and international humanitarian organizations. Users may register and apply online for a variety of IHC services. With extensive content including a detailed list of IHC services and an in-depth guide to IHC rules and regulations, the launch of the new website is part of the IHC’s ongoing efforts to enhance the quality of its services for member organizations.
