Showing children the way of kindness.
Before Aster Hospital, Al Qusais opened its doors, we invited the changemakers of tomorrow to create a testament for the world to see. Around 60 children planted trees inside the campus and created ‘Wahdah’ - an art installation.
‘Wahdah’ is a promise made by children from different walks of life, united in the message that we can only affect kindness in the world outside if we are kind from within.
The children worked, played, and learned together as they used their imagination and creativity to fill the artwork with colors and hope. The piece now stands as a reminder for us all to be kind, inclusive, and unbiased; or simply put - humane.
Many communities around the world do not have access to healthcare. This has become especially difficult during the Covid-19 situation. Aster Volunteers Mobile Medical Services strives to bring medical services like temperature screening, medicines, and check-ups to these communities. 16,184 people were positively impacted by this initiative across 5 countries.
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.
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.
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.
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.
