Emirates Red Crescent (ERC), Aster Volunteers put a smile on 100 underprivileged children faces

06th March, 2018 – United Arab Emirates – With the aim of bringing happiness on children’s faces, Aster Volunteers joined hands with the Emirates Red Crescent-Dubai and created a program called “Smile” to provide medical care and treatment to 100 underprivileged children.


The program echoes the sentiments put forth by the Year of Zayed, designed to commemorate the memory of the late Sheikh Zayed 100 years after his birth. A reflection of the UAE’s Founding Father’s vision to promote the health and wellbeing of children everywhere, “Smile” invited the children at the Red Crescent premises—some orphaned and others rescued from various hardships—from countries including Syria, Yemen, and Iraq.

The program saw participation of more than 24 medical and non-medical volunteers, as well as the support of the CSR impact partner “Lighthouse Cohort” which also encouraged the children’s involvement in fun games, arts and crafts, and educational activities.
The Smile program provided children with medical check-ups from General Practitioners and medical experts across specialties including ear, nose and throat (ENT); dental; and pediatrics supported by Aster and Medcare facilities in the UAE.
