This article is a celebration of completing 15 community awareness campaigns under 3 different themes during the 1st half of 2019. Our community partnerships aligns with our holistic vision, and long-term commitment to advancing health and wellness in our community.
1. Listen to your body:
Obesity is by far the most dangerous underlying reason for many modern diseases, such as diabetes and heart problems. The earlier you can detect diabetes and deal with it, the safer you will be from its nasty complications. Thus, we went on 9 campaigns encouraging people to listen to their bodies. They took place at Wadi Degla Club, 6th of October Club and Hyper1 Market. Our methodology involved free inbody mass assessment, diabetes test, and one-to-one doctor consultancy. Our doctors have also offered public seminars on best and safest methods to reduce obesity and maintain a healthy body weight.
2. We’ve got your back:
As an integrated part of the Egyptian community, we are well-aware at Al Safwa Hospital that many people are not covered by a health insurance umbrella. This fact often discourages many from making correct, timely health decisions due to the fear of financial burdens. Thus, we invented Al Safwa annual health card, to make our premium healthcare access available to as many people as possible, and at very low cost, when they subscribe to our card once a year. Once again, we took our team to nearby clubs and markets to let everyone know that “We’ve got your back!”
3. Healthcare for orphans:
Orphanages are vital members of our communities. We believe that all children should be granted access to regular checkups, and should receive timely healthcare accordingly. Thus, we came up with the idea of preparing a medical convoy to perform medical checkups at nearby orphanages, and adopt the cases that would need further medical assistance at our hospital. We found that the national orphans’ day is a great start for this initiative, and therefore we made our first medical visit on the 5th of April, at Al-SAHWA orphanage. The success of this first visit encouraged us to plan many more across the year.
To this end, we are delighted to announce the official activation of our CSR unit, to increase our capacity of systematically and consistently serving the community we call home.
