Dubai-based construction giant Emaar Properties said on Friday that it would repair all rain-related damage to its residential complexes free of charge.

The announcement was made by Emaar Chairman Mohamed Alabbar, emphasising the company's dedication to its residents.

"At Emaar Properties, we are deeply committed to the well-being and safety of all our residents and stakeholders. In response to the challenges posed by this adverse weather and heavy rains that Dubai has experienced in the past few days, I am pleased to announce that Emaar will undertake the repair of all properties within our communities that have been damaged by the recent rains at its own cost to ensure that our residents can return to their daily lives as swiftly and smoothly as possible,” Alabbar stated.

“Emaar has always strived to support our community in times of need, and as a responsible company, we undertake to provide all possible support in such situations including complete repair of our customers’ homes,” Alabbar said in a statement carried by the Dubai Media Office.

“Emaar Properties is deeply committed to the well-being of its community. Since the severe rains began on Tuesday, our facility management and community management staff have been on the ground, tirelessly assisting customers day and night,” Alabaar said.

“The teams have been actively dealing with challenges, including clearing numerous water-clogging issues, and continue to work around the clock to provide solutions. Building on this dedicated effort, we are pleased to announce an initiative to repair all homes within our communities affected by the recent severe weather in Dubai, at no cost to residents,” the Emaar chairman added.

Emaar’s dedicated teams are already coordinating with local authorities and have begun assessing and restoring the damaged properties. All homes, whether old or new, that have reported damage directly resulting from the recent rainfall and registered through Emaar call centre are eligible for this service.

Prominent Emirati businessman Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor said he would donate more than $4 million to assist Emirati nationals in repairing damaged homes. The Habtoor Group, which owns several hotels in Dubai, provided free hotel stays for affected Emirati families, said Habtoor, who is the firm's chairman. Other hotels have offered discounted rates to Dubai residents.
