Sharjah 24: Prior to the Corona pandemic, Sharjah Charity International (SCI) was able to launch many medical camps that targeted various segments of society with the support of government and private institutions within the framework of community participation to provide free examinations for over 8000 people from all segments of society in the period (2015–2019).
All of the standard medical tests are available, such as those for blood pressure, diabetes, gynaecological conditions, dental and orthopaedic conditions, vision, and internal problems.
The Director of SCI, Hamad Khalifa Al Kaabi, revealed that the SCI has made significant progress in the number of medical camps that have been opened in various areas of the Emirate of Sharjah, with the assistance and collaboration of the Ministry of Health and Prevention. Hamad Khalifa Al Kaabi said that the Ministry of Health and Prevention has been instrumental in the success of the society's endeavours.
Al Kaabi added that SCI based the idea of medical camps on the fact that Sharjah is a healthy city. In light of the fact that some people are unable to cover the cost of conducting these examinations in private clinics, the camps set up by the association help people with limited income to check on their health and the health of their families. This may indicate that after recovering from the pandemic of Corona and returning to normal life, social responsibility has been renounced.
