Dubai: The Ministry of Community Development has signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, with Zulekha Hospital to provide a wide range of discounted services and treatments for Emirati senior citizens who hold a Masarrah card.

Masarrah is a community card launched in 2016 to give Emirati citizens aged 60 and above access to a number of services and exclusive privileges.

The agreement was signed by Naji Al Hai, Assistant Under-Secretary for the Social Development Sector at the Ministry of Community Development, and Dr Zulekha Daud, founder and chairperson of the hospital.

Under the MoU, the hospital is committed to offering 30 per cent discounts on medical, laboratory, X-ray, outpatient and physiotherapy services for Masarrah card holders, as well as a dedicated clinic that ensures comprehensive care and quick service.

The agreement will provide low cost treatment services to card holders, as well as social responsibility programmes between the two parties will be activated to promote the values of social solidarity and mutual benefit in common areas.
