IHC – Free zone dedicated for humanitarian purpose

The government of Dubai has been taking several steps to decrease its economic dependence on the oil and gas industry. To enable this, the government has been encouraging the growth of other industries by easing the company formation in Dubai norms and by setting up free zones.

At the same time, Dubai is also making significant efforts for the betterment of society and human cause. It is a well-established fact that Dubai provides its citizens and residents with world class facilities. At the same time, Dubai also focuses a lot on humanitarian causes and giving it back to the society. The perfect reflection of its efforts is the International Humanitarian City (IHC) free zone in Dubai.

The IHC is a free zone that is dedicated for humanitarian purposes. The IHC is dedicated for the distribution of humanitarian help across the globe. To make this true, several departments of the UN, a number of international NGOs and intergovernmental organizations have established their units in the IHC. Some of the most important organizations operating from the IHC include UNHCR, WHO, UNICEF, OCHA, UNDP, UNDSS, WFP, Red Crescent and Red Cross.

Founded in the year 2003, the IHC is the result of a merger between the Dubai Aid City (DAC) and Dubai Humanitarian City (DHC). It is 18 kms from the Al Maktoum Airport. Currently, IHC is regarded as the largest humanitarian hub in the world.
