Over sixty external volunteers, close to thirty internal volunteers from various divisions of Aster DM Healthcare, and multiple NGO partners’ came together to organize interactive entertainment and wellness activities.

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. 

As testimony to their commitment to the community, Aster DM healthcare is working on recruiting more than 100 differently abled people in its workforce in GCC and India. 

Commenting on the occasion, Dr. Azad Moopen, Chairman & Managing Director for Aster DM Healthcare, said, “With the blessings of the almighty and support of our UAE Rulers, Aster DM Healthcare has completed 30 years in the healthcare sector. To celebrate three decades of serving the society, we have launched a series of initiatives to give back to the communities in which we operate. Through the ‘Al - Amal’ initiative, we are honored to help and support the people who are living their life with determination and achieving things to the best of their abilities.”

Many people want to help, and many are in need of help. The Aster Volunteers serves as a platform to connect both these segments of society.”

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.
