A group of UAE volunteer doctors have launched the first-ever national initiative to provide medical assistance to underprivileged patients in a number of sisterly and friendly countries. Dr. Adel Al Shamri, a reputed UAE cardiologist and Chairman of the Emirates World Heart Group (EWHG), said the new 'Giving Hand' medical charity campaign will target poor patients in a number of sisterly and friendly countries. 'The campaign, a public-private medical partnership, will deliver medical assistance and care to poor patients in a host of specialisations ranging from eye, ear, general surgery, community and family medicine and emergency and disasters,” he added.

'The Giving Hand” initiative was launched to enhance the voluntary path the EWHG adopts and follow the charitable and humanitarian approach of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in extending assistance to sisterly and friendly countries at times of ordeals, he added.
