100 Underprivileged Children ‘Smile’ in Dubai Medical Mission

by Pooja Chauhan Freelance Professional

DUBAI, UAE- In commemoration of the late UAE Founding Father Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who was known for championing children’s health and well-being, the Aster Volunteers and Emirates Red Crescent-Dubai collaborated to provide medical treatment to 100 underprivileged children. This was held in the Year of Zayed, celebrated in the memory of the leader’s 100th birth anniversary. 

The joint program, which they called “Smile,” gathered together over 24 medical and non-medical volunteers, along with Lighthouse Cohort (which is known for its CSR programs) to serve the needs of indigent children from Syria, Yemen, and Iraq.

Aster Volunteers is a non-profit health and wellness organization dedicated to spreading hope and inspiring people. They conducted the camp on March 4, 2018, from 9 am to 3 pm, for children up to 12 years old at the Emirates Red Crescent, Garhoud, Dubai.   

The children, some of whom were orphans and were rescued from difficult circumstances, received much-needed medical care, as well as moments of fun and creative learning.  Lighthouse Cohort brought happiness to the children by engaging them in different games, arts and crafts activities, and educational endeavors. There were workshops for the children to teach them painting, beadwork, papercraft, and photography.

The hundred child beneficiaries had check-ups from general medical practitioners, as well as from various specialists. There were doctors specializing in ear, nose, and throat (ENT), and paediatrics.

One very important feature of the Smile project was the provision of dental services since access to dental care is a widespread problem for children who live in poverty. Since poor oral health affects the children’s eating, speaking, and learning, it is critical to address dental problems right away, because they will only get worse with time if left untreated.    

For populations who are blessed with the capacity to afford high-quality dental care, one of the most trusted dental clinic in Dubai is the American Medical and Dental Center (AMDC). The AMDC operates with a core team of highly competent and experienced dentists. They provide top-caliber dental services for both adults and children. 

The AMDC was founded in 2005 in the USA. The following year, 2006, it opened its doors in the United Arab Emirates at the Dubai Healthcare City. For those looking for the best dentist in Dubai, the AMDC is a great choice. It offers a wide range of dental services, including veneers and implants.

If you are searching for a dentist in Dubai who does high-quality veneers in Dubai, this is the place to go to. Dental veneers are used to dramatically transform the teeth of those who have stained, crooked, or damaged teeth. Veneers have the advantage of not being invasive nor painful for the patient.

Meanwhile, for people who are searching for reputable dental professionals who perform dental implants in Dubai, this is also the right place. Dental implants have the advantage of being more stable and comfortable than conventional bridges or dentures, and is highly recommended for those who need convenience and can afford it.
