Health drive is part of the department’s year-long efforts of community initiatives
More than 450 cleaners working in different areas of Dubai benefited from a medical initiative organised by the Waste Management Department of Dubai Municipality, in cooperation with several private sector medical establishments.
Through the initiative ‘Because We Care About You!’ medical consultations were offered to workers and examinations were carried out for diabetes, hypertension, and cholesterol, in addition to providing awareness and guidance to maintain health and wellbeing of the workers.
Medical checkups were carried out with the participation of qualified volunteers from Saudi German Hospital, Medeor Hospital, Prime Hospital, and Life Pharmacy with the support of the Public Health Services Department of Dubai Municipality.
Eng. Abdulmajeed Saifaie, director of Waste Management Department at Dubai Municipality, said the initiative is part of the department’s annual work plan for a series of community initiatives that will be implemented for its employees this year in line with the Year of Zayed.
“The initiative affirms the constant efforts of the Municipality to motivate the community to interact with one another,” he said.
