Dubai: Doctors conducted free health check-ups at a worker’s accommodation in Jebel Ali and educated them on healthy living and stress management on the occasion of World Health Day on Saturday.
Right Health, the UAE’s largest and fastest-growing value health care organisation backed by Foundation Holdings, collaborated with Eisa Saleh Al Gurg, one of UAE’s prominent conglomerates, to promote health awareness among blue-collar workers.
The initiative, aligned with the objective of the Year of Zayed, benefited around 600 workers contracted to Eisa Saleh Al Gurg.
Muna Al Gurg, Director of Retail at Eisa Saleh Al Gurg, thanked Right Health for investing in their staff’s health, welfare and knowledge.
“It is imperative that we empower our workers through providing them with the knowledge and tools to safeguard their well-being. We thank Right Health for its valuable contribution in driving this initiative and hope the session will encourage a healthy lifestyle among our workers and the wider community,” Al Gurg said.
Shainoor Khoja, Chief Impact Officer at Right Health, lauded the workers for contributing to the growth and development of the nation.
“Blue-collar workers dedicate an extraordinary amount of time and skill to their jobs every day, and have played an integral role in transforming the UAE into a world-class destination within a short period. We are pleased to collaborate with Eisa Saleh Al Gurg to talk to workers about disease prevention as well as the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle to reduce stress and related ailments,” Khoja said.
