Children participating in Modhesh Friends Forum, organised by Dubai eGovernment as part of Dubai Summer Surprises 2010 being held from June 17 to August 7, were recently taken on a visit to the Dubai Thalassemia Center in Al Wasl Hospital. The children were accompanied by representatives from Dubai eGovernment, supervisors of Modhesh Friends Forum, in addition to several specialist doctors and staff from the Thalassemia Center, who together were focused on bringing a smile to the faces of thalassemia-afflicted children. Modhesh, the ever smiling character was also present to cheer up the children.

The visit to the center underlines Dubai eGovernment’s strong commitment to corporate social responsibility efforts, which benefit all community segments, including children diagnosed with thalassemia. Dubai Thalassemia Center is the UAE’s first specialized center to provide support and care to thalassemia-afflicted people.

The visit by Modhesh Friends Forum participants featured an informative presentation about Thalassemia, its stages of development, diagnosis, and the medical services offered by the center. It also featured an entertaining performance by Modhesh, followed by the distribution of special gifts to the children at the center.
