With a big number of UAE residents estimated to staycation this summer, a healthcare group in Ajman which is also into the education and training of medical and healthcare professionals, launched on Tuesday a two-month online family-oriented project with featured webinars on relevant topics such as mental health, cardiac care, and nutrition tips.

Thumbay Group founder/president Dr. Thumbay Moideen, on the sidelines of the virtual press conference on the “Thumbay Healthcare Summer Festival,” expressed hope that individuals and families across the UAE would be encouraged to strengthen their bond and remain healthy – or even become much healthier – through these trying times.

The project covers the entire months of July and August with a set of competitions conceptualised by “our team of doctors and wellness experts.”

Moideen said: “Summer is here and as we are still in the midst of a raging pandemic where travel restrictions, sudden lockdowns and new variants are reality, we feel it is important to create an event for the society which not only helps the community stay connected and engaged, but also gives them the opportunity to win big whilst encouraging them to adopt a healthy lifestyle in a fun way,” he added.

He pointed out that the most vital realisation, the continually mutating SARS-CoV2, has taught everyone across the globe, is that “health is (the) asset” each can never do without.

From the virtual press conference, it was learnt that those interested, who must enlist over, would receive all the support through all the competitions they join in.

Thumbay Group-Healthcare Division vice-president Akbar Moideen Thumbay said: “It is a fact that participating in community events help people achieve their health and wellness goals quickly and in a more effective way. Our experts will provide all the necessary support and guidance to all the candidates whenever needed.”

Competitions throughout the 62-day festival and which would be announced on a weekly basis are the Baby Show, Weight Loss, Walking Challenge, Dental Hygiene Contest, Supermom Competition, and Pain Assessment Programme.

A report last year said less than a year after its opening, Thumbay University Hospital, the region’s largest private academic hospital with 350 beds, located at Thumbay Medicity, Al Jurf, Ajman marked a significant milestone celebrating 1,000 deliveries under its ‘Centre for Obstetrics and Gynaecology’.
