The Dubai International Humanitarian City (IHC) holds the distinction of being the world’s largest humanitarian hub. Founded in 2003 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, it was formed through the merger of Dubai Aid City and Dubai Humanitarian City.

The IHC is a non-profit, independent, humanitarian free-zone Authority that hosts a community of approximately 80 members, including UN organisations, non-profits, non-governmental organisations, and commercial companies. The International Humanitarian community in Dubai is made up of more than 500 individuals representing over 68 nationalities. As a non-profit organisation, the IHC provides accommodation for relief and charity agencies, companies involved in these activities, and several humanitarian groups, and serves as a platform for its members. Additionally, it plays a critical role in facilitating first response to global crises and disasters. Its location in Jebel Ali enables rapid shipment transport to most parts of the world. The hub operates under the aegis of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, and has provided assistance to millions of people in need.
