Aster Volunteers and Dubai Health Authority held a blood donation drive on 26 July 2020. Blood donors at Aster Hospital Day Care Center in Mankhool were the heroes of the day. Our blood donation camps are held with the highest safety standards so everyone can donate blood safely and risk-free.
Aster Volunteers partnered with Aster Hospital, Aster Clinic, Indian Association RAK and Ministry of Health RAK to hold a medical camp on 24 and 25 July 2020.

Food, kits, and essentials can go a long way for the less fortunate during the Covid-19 crisis.

Providing medical facilities and Covid-19 screening and awareness, AVMMS has impacted the marginalised population of Ernakulam, Idukki and Thrissur districts of Kerala.

Beirut, Lebanon is currently suffering the aftermath of two explosions that took place in August 2020. Our volunteers came together to Stand with Lebanon and pack medical relief kits. Kits worth over 2 million with medicines and consumables were prepared and sent to Lebanon via IHC Dubai and the Ministry of Health UAE. We are grateful to the volunteers and the contributors who made this possible.
Aster Homes will help rehabilitate or rebuild homes that were wholly or partially affected by the Kerala floods. We need volunteers to help execute this project. Join Aster Volunteers.
As part of the Green Choices Initiative, Aster Volunteers has organised a campaign for safe disposal of e-waste. As the global volume of e-waste increases, it is our responsibility to safely discard and/or recycle it. People can drop off their e-waste in collection boxes present at various Aster Units. This is one step towards ensuring a cleaner environment.
We're conducting a series of Facebook live sessions to help people cope with the current COVID 19 pandemic. These sessions are hosted by expert doctors from Aster hospitals. Log on to facebook.com/AsterVolunteers to know more.
