Dubai, UAE: Dar Al Ber Society, Ras Al Khaimah branch, has run a special charity health campaign on the right way to deal with diabetics and blood pressure patients.

The course, themed ‘Let’s visit them sound rather than sick’, was delivered by Dr. Khalid Waleed Jassir of the Community Initiatives Section at the RAK Medical Zone.

The pioneering scheme, in line with the ‘Year of Giving’ initiative, covered all government departments and civil society organisations across the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.

Ali Abdullah Al Shehi, RAK Branch Manager, said the event, organised in cooperation with the Cosmesurge and Emirates Hospital Clinics (EHC), saw the presence of Ibrahim Hajaj, Head of Nursing Section – EGC.

“The personnel present were enlightened on the nature of the two chronic diseases, right readings, how to take readings and how to deal with unconscious diabetics and blood pressure patients.”

The attendees, along with the Al Ber Quran memorisers in Ras Al Khaimah, had a chance to practice what they have learnt in the course, he added. “Souvenirs and booklets on diabetes and blood pressure were distributed to them all.”

Waleed Abdullatif, Deputy Manager of Dar Al Ber branch in Ras Al Khaimah, said they were grateful to the RAK Medical Zone for their incessant and fruitful cooperation. “They spare no effort to spread medical awareness in the society.”

Mahra Bint Saray, Head of Community Initiatives at the RAK Medical Zone, said they were so keen to make a big success of the ‘Year of Giving’ initiative. “This is in pursuance of the directives of the prudent leadership.”
