Oct 17 2017

With an intent to empower differently abled people in the region, Aster Volunteers recently partnered with the ‘Dubai Club for People of Determination’ (formally known as Dubai Club for Disabled) to organise a collaborative initiative called “Al-Amal - The Hope”. The effort was implemented as part of the giving back initiatives by Aster DM Healthcare to mark their ongoing “Aster@30” anniversary celebrations. The event saw participation from more than 200 differently abled members and their families. Over sixty external volunteers, close to thirty internal volunteers from various divisions of Aster DM Healthcare, and multiple NGO partners’ came together to organise interactive entertainment and wellness activities. It was a pleasant experience for all the participants and their family members.

Aster Volunteers also arranged a free medical check-up camp for the attendees with the support of doctors from Medcare Women & Children Hospital, Dubai and Medcare Hospital , Sharjah & Aster Hospital & Clinics, and paramedical staff and nurses from various specialities including general medicine, orthopaedics, paediatrics, dentistry, gynaecology and ENT. Further, the medical team demonstrated basic life support awareness and CPR training. The attendees could also take part in creative workshops on arts and crafts, paintings and photography.

The Club officials appreciated the efforts of the Aster Volunteers to support their members, while also setting up job placement opportunities. “The recruitment opportunity for these people is a great help for them to support their families and themselves while working in the mainstream work environment. The Medical camp and BLS was very helpful, and the activity counters and the art and craft booths made the day very special for all our children,” said Thani Juma Berregad, Chairman of Dubai Club for People of Determination.
