Dubai-based master developer Nakheel is supplying frontline medical staff in the emirate with 485,000 items of protective clothing as part of its ongoing pledge to support the fight against COVID-19. The supplies have been delivered to the Dubai Health Authority for distribution among doctors and nurses across the emirate.
Last month, Nakheel had announced an AED230 million economic package to ease the financial burden facing retailers and small businesses in the wake of the pandemic. It includes rent relief for Nakheel Malls tenants, taking effect when malls reopen, and rental holidays for small businesses at Nakheel master communities. In addition, administration charges across various services are also waived for three months.
