DUBAI: Preparations to set up a one-of-a-kind medical treatment centre to benefit the community’s low-income populace have been made, with the master plan submitted to the government and waiting approval.
Once the approval was extended by the Community Development Authority (CDA) of Dubai Government and other relevant agencies, the construction work on the site will be initiated as funds are enough for the project to see it to completion.
This was announced by Dr Aamerah Shah, the general secretary of Pakistan Association Dubai’s Medical Wing while addressing at the annual gala dinner at the Intercontinental Hotel in Dubai on Friday evening.
The annual gala dinner was organised by the Medical Wing for over 300 members, doctors, and their families.
The chief guest at the occasion was Dr Abdul Kareem Sultan Al Olama, CEO of Jalila Foundation, while senior representatives of the American Hospital Dubai and a number of prominent Pakistani community dignitaries were also present.
Dr Abdul Kareem Sultan Al Olama, CEO of Jalila Foundation, in his address shed light on the initiatives being carried out at the foundation, which included extending grants for scientific research, offering scholarships to doctors, and giving training programmes for parents and students with special needs.
“The foundation is working for the benefit of society, as the wide range of services reflects our commitment to the health sector,” he said.
Dr Aamerah pointed out that in 2014, a number of doctors under the medical wing of the association have implemented ten free medical camps to benefit over 2,000 patients.
The medical wing also organised two free camps in labour camps, two blood donation camps and health awareness drives to benefit over 800 students, as all these were achieved with the financial contribution of the wing’s member doctors and community philanthropists,” she added.
Updating on the medical centre for community, she said that the CDA has been given the business plan while other necessary approval will be granted soon to start work on this project to benefit the low-income segment of the community.
The centre will have all the necessary medical treatment facilities for the community for a subsidised fee, while specialist doctors in different departments will also be available throughout the week.
Earlier, a scientific session “health frontier” for doctors was held in which experts from the industry shed light on the various segments of diabetes treatment and medicines.
The session was addressed by Dr Muhammad Hameed Farooqui from Dubai Diebetes Centre, Dr Faisal Ikram from Mediclinic City Hospital-Dubai, Dr Abdul Jabbar from Northwest Clinic-Dubai and Dr Nasrullah Khan.
