Providing medical care to the underprivileged.
Aster Volunteers partnered with the Emirates Red Crescent, Dubai to launch ‘Smile’ - a program to help bring medical care to the lives of 100 underprivileged children. More than 24 medical and non-medical volunteers joined Lighthouse Cohort, our CSR Impact partner in bringing joy to the children through fun games, arts and crafts, and educational activities.
A follow-up event, Smile 2.0, was conducted during Eid, 2018. 100 underprivileged children of various nationalities were provided medical screening and 60 of them were taken shopping and receive Eidi from Aster Volunteers. Our volunteers helped make this year’s Eid one to cherish, both for the children and us.
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.
