We are thankful to them, Aster, DHA, Dubai Ambulance, Dubai Police, IBPC, Indian community and everyone involved in the successful delivery of the mandate for this facility.”
 
“As a healthcare organization, we have been at the forefront of managing this crisis with our facilities and staff being actively involved in working with the government to control the pandemic. Most of the medical staff and volunteers who have been actively involved in managing this facility had volunteered to be a part of this project, putting their own personal safety at risk and they continued to work relentlessly for long hours everyday to be able to heal each of the patients who came to them, following all necessary measures to control the spread of Covid-19. We are proud of their tremendous achievement and commend the work that they have done,” said Dr. Azad Moopen.
