The programme was conducted at the Indian Pavilion at Dubai Expo 2020 where all the 70 children got an opportunity to meet super-speciality doctors from Aster and Medcare facilities in UAE for a check-up, followed by various entertainment activities. The kids also got an opportunity to visit three pavilions at the Expo site along with food and refreshments, goody bags etc.
Speaking on the occasion, Ms. Alisha Moopen, Deputy Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare said, “The entire purpose of the Smile programme is to bring joy, happiness and well-being into the lives of these young children who have been through so much at such a young age. Some of them have been brought in from war-torn countries, some are orphans, while others come from difficult and underprivileged backgrounds. Putting a little smile on their lips and caring for their health and well-being is the least we can do for them. This is the fourth edition of the programme being conducted by Aster Volunteers and is one of the many initiatives that we have to support the health and well-being of children in need.”
