Coronavirus: Cafu to deliver free fuel to Dubai's ambulance fleet

Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services operates vehicles in over 100 locations across the emirate

Coronavirus: Cafu to deliver free fuel to Dubai's ambulance fleet

Rashid Al Ghurair, founder and CEO of Cafu, said: "It is important to come together as a community and support each other during this critical time.”


Cafu is to provide ambulances in Dubai with free fuel for the next two weeks.

The region’s first on-demand fuel delivery app has announced it will deliver petrol to the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services’ (DCAS) fleet of vehicles, which operate in over 100 locations across the emirate.

Rashid Al Ghurair, founder and CEO of Cafu, said: "It is important to come together as a community and support each other during this critical time.”

Cafu currently runs 180 trucks covering Dubai, Ajman, Sharjah and Umm Al Quwain.

The move to bring contactless fuel delivery to frontline health workers will eliminate the need for them to go to petrol stations.

Khalifa Bin Dray, executive director of DCAS, said: "We deeply appreciate this remarkable initiative from Cafu. This is a true testament of the UAE’s ability to inspire solidarity between members of the society to defeat this pandemic.”
