Speaking at the event, Shri.

The frontline workers and volunteers have shown real selflessness and persevered against all odds in order to support their local community to fight this pandemic. We are thankful to them, Aster, DHA, Dubai Ambulance, Dubai Police, IBPC, Indian community and everyone involved in the successful delivery of the mandate for this facility.”
 
“As a healthcare organization, we have been at the forefront of managing this crisis with our facilities and staff being actively involved in working with the government to control the pandemic. Most of the medical staff and volunteers who have been actively involved in managing this facility had volunteered to be a part of this project, putting their own personal safety at risk and they continued to work relentlessly for long hours everyday to be able to heal each of the patients who came to them, following all necessary measures to control the spread of Covid-19. We are proud of their tremendous achievement and commend the work that they have done,” said Dr. Azad Moopen.

This is among the numerous initiatives that had been introduced to help the community cope-up with Covid-19 in UAE like mass screenings in congested areas, free teleconsultation by medical professionals, awareness and educational activities and #FeedTheHungry programme that provided 6707 food and ration kits to people in UAE who have lost their jobs, impacting 300,000 lives in the process. Aster had also dedicated two of its facilities under Aster and Medcare as designated Covid-19 treatment centre in partnership with DHA and brought in 88 medical professionals from its facilities in India to join the Dubai government's fight against Covid-19.
