The campaign also includes distributing water bottles in the Al Khuzama area near Al Qassimi Hospital, while educating the workforce about the importance of drinking water to reduce the risk of kidney stones and other diseases.

WATER IS LIFE
Proper hydration helps regulate body temperature, removes waste through kidney and prevents kidney stones, lubricates joints, aids in digestion, keeps skin bright and supple and helps improve mood and cognitive functions.

By consuming the minimum recommendation of water, you’re helping your body function better and improving your overall health.

“This annual campaign is part of our commitment to encouraging behaviours that contribute to maintaining kidney health. Every year, we target various groups of society to make sure that the campaign achieves its sought-after objectives,” said Mariam Khalfan bin Dakheen, director of the Friends of Kidney Patients Association.

Organising such campaigns comes in line with the directions of the authorities in Sharjah to promote health-related practices by providing appropriate information and consultations.
