Emirates News Agency – Dar Al Ber inaugurates first mobile cardiac centre in Sudan
Dubai, October 20, 2020 (WAM) – The Dar Al Ber Society has announced the launch of the first mobile center to treat heart patients in flood-hit areas of Sudan as part of an innovative humanitarian initiative to provide health services to remote locations.
The move is under the supervision of a group of doctors from the UAE and Sudan who are volunteering in the Young Voluntary Leaders Program, in collaboration with Emirati and Sudanese institutions as part of a standalone model of joint charitable humanitarian work in the field of specialist medicine relief.
Dar Al Ber confirmed that the launch of the Emirates Mobile Heart Center falls under the humanitarian responsibilities of the Emirati-Sudanese Voluntary Field Hospital, which provides diagnostic treatment and prevention services to more than 20,000 people affected by the floods in Sudanese villages. This is part of the relief campaign that Dar Al Ber started in early September to address the effects of the floods and currents.
Dar Al Ber Society Executive Director Muhammad Suhail Al Muhairi said: “The Mobile Heart Center initiative reflects the UAE’s humanitarian policy and firm charitable approach and its willingness to support and provide assistance to its brothers and those affected in Sudan provide relief and support by providing support in all possible forms of solidarity support. ”
Yousef Al-Yateem, head of Zakat and Projects Sector, said that the company has made sure that the mobile heart center is equipped with the latest equipment, advanced medical care and a modern laboratory. It also comes with free medication for patients with heart and chronic illnesses, especially the elderly, by volunteer medical teams.
Voluntary diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive services will be available to thousands of cardiac patients, the elderly and others in flood-affected areas, as well as other residents of Sudanese villages and cities. A specialized mobile center will provide services under the supervision of a group of senior advisors from the United Arab Emirates and Sudan.
Yousef Al-Yateem stressed the importance of the medical and humanitarian role that the Emirates Doctors’ initiative is playing in Sudan.
The Dar Al Ber Society creates awareness of heart disease and its complications and ways to prevent it, such as a healthy lifestyle, to provide full support to the people of Sudan.
