As Eid Al Adha is approaching, Dawoud Al Hajri, Director General of Dubai Municipality, conducted an inspection tour at Dubai Abattoirs, in order to ensure their readiness and preparedness to provide their services to the public in an efficient and effective manner. Concerned officials from the Municipality and people from the Smart Apps to request sacrifices and representatives of charity organizations were also present on the occasion.
The service delivery points in the abattoirs, their facilities and work mechanisms were reviewed during the tour to ensure that the services were provided smoothly and flexibly, in addition to the facilities that are provided to senior citizens and People of Determination, as an embodiment of the Municipality’s care towards various categories of the society.
Dubai Abattoirs affiliated to Dubai Municipality have started their preparations to receive Eid Al Adha by seeking cooperation with a set of smart applications and home delivery to help the public to purchase livestock without the need for the customer to visit the abattoir.
The four smart applications for animal sacrifice request include “Al Mawashi” app, “Turki” app, “Shabab Al Freej” app and the “Dhabayih Aldaar” app. The animals slaughtered are all under Municipality supervision in the abattoirs. Requests are also available from charity associations such as Dar Al Ber Society, Dubai Charity Association, Red Crescent Authority, Al Ihsan Charity Association, Sharjah Charity International, Beit Al Khair Society and, the UAE Food Bank.
The Dubai Abattoirs are keen to exert all efforts aimed at making the customers happy, and to provide high-quality services that are in line with their aspirations and needs, taking into account reducing waiting hours and speed in providing services. In addition to that, the Abattoirs are also keen to implement all preventive measures aimed at preserving the health and safety of all members of the society, as the commitment of Abattoirs in the emirate comes with various health requirements in the first place.
It is worth noting that Dubai Abattoirs have launched a set of initiatives aimed at motivating and encouraging members of society and various partners, livestock traders, butchers and meat distributors to use smart applications, in order to benefit from its multiple advantages and the smoothness of the services provided through it. In addition, providing ideally equipped places to prepare the meat after the veterinary examination, the slaughter of livestock, and the final veterinary examination in preparation for delivery to customers’ homes, without the need for their personal presence in the abattoirs.
This will also contribute in reducing the number of visitors to the service centers and enhancing the position of the Emirate of Dubai in the field of smart services, as well as contributing to environmental goals related to reducing traffic congestion, which cuts short the emission of carbon dioxide (carbon footprint). It will also reduce the phenomenon of roaming butchers and enhance the standards of maintaining the public health of all members of society.
