The Nama Centre has presented Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) resident patients with the ‘Gift of Giving’, which comprises a set of personal hygiene kits, blankets and patient clothing.
The initiative stems from Nama’s social responsibility and is part of its humanitarian programmes and initiatives, according to a press statement.
Nama is one of Qatar Foundation for Social Work’s affiliated centres.
Maryam bint Abdullatif al-Mannai, acting executive manager at Nama Centre, said: “Our initiative — the ‘Gift of Giving’ — is part of our ongoing efforts to support society’s various segments, including the hospital’s resident patients, who are in dire need of those who can stand by them and shower them with benevolence and an abundance of blessings in order to lift their spirits and boost their sense of significance in their community.
“We appreciate the excellent role HMC plays for their benefit through the provision of the best medical services to alleviate their suffering, and we look forward to gaining the support of community members and institutions through their active contribution to this remarkable initiative.”
Ibrahim al-Ansari, acting head of the Social Services Department at Qatar Rehabilitation Institute — HMC, said: “We first extend our thanks to our brothers and sisters at Nama Centre for their continuous support for the patients.
“This is not the first such initiative, as we have an established community partnership with Nama Centre to serve patients and contribute to their treatment in terms of costs and fees for dialysis.
“We at Hamad Medical Corp, represented by the Social Services Department, provide social, psychological and financial support to all patients, whether citizens, residents, workers, or visitors.
“Thus, the ‘Gift of Giving’ will be distributed to patients in need, through 12 hospitals affiliated with HMC.”
Nama Centre launched the ‘Gift of Giving’ initiative in 2011, which helped support 445 patients over the course of four years, including all branches of HMC. In 2011-2012, this was presented to Rumailah Hospital, in 2013 to Hamad Medical City, in 2014 to the Muaither Medical Complex, and in 2015 to patients at the National Center for Cancer Care and Research at Al Amal Hospital.
