The initiative’s two-prong approach reaches out to both the public and medical communities.
Volunteers will run what has been reported to be Abu Dhabi’s first ever mobile clinic for telemedicine which is aimed at women and children, and the medical profession.
The initiative is part of the Fatima Bint Mubarak Volunteering Programme, and is under the directives of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union (GWU), President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, and Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation (FDF).
Specialist volunteers will provide medical and therapeutic care, while educating patients on the diseases that affect women and children, especially infectious illnesses, such as COVID-19.
The initiative is also seeking to attract, train, qualify and empower medical talent in the areas of healthcare volunteering to reduce the spread of diseases through innovative initiatives that combine mobile community medicine and medical technology.
Noura Khalifa Al Suwaidi, Director-General of GWU, said that the Fatima Bint Mubarak Volunteering Programme has introduced an innovative model to be copied for volunteering in the field of healthcare by attracting qualified cadres capable of serving the community in the best possible manner.
