HMC is partnering with the Supreme Council of Health and Primary Health Care Corporation in a special tent in the Darb Al Saai grounds. The tent is open daily until December 20, from 8am to noon and 4pm to 10pm.

Trained staff will offer free basic health checks, including blood pressure and sugar checks, eye and dental checks. Staff will also be on hand to provide education on nutrition and other health-related information.

Activities for families with children are provided to enable them to have an interactive and fun experience while learning more about a healthy lifestyle. A mobile blood donor unit is stationed in the Darb Al Saai grounds for any visitor willing to donate blood.

In the days leading up to Qatar National Day, which falls on December 18, all HMC hospitals will offer traditional refreshments to visitors and several facilities will erect a tent where patients and families can experience traditional Qatari hospitality.

Many of HMC hospitals will feature the Arda - traditional Qatari dancing; Hamad General Hospital, Al Wakra Hospital, Al Khor Hospital and The Cuban Hospital will have special activities in the morning for children throughout the week leading up to the Qatar National Day.

“We are delighted to share the joys of celebrating our National Day with the communities we serve and our patients and their families as well as our staff will have the opportunity to join many of the fun and informative activities,” said Ali Abdulla al-Khater, chief corporate communications officer at HMC.

“Qatar National Day is intended for all to enjoy and we look forward to engaging with our visitors and promoting the spirit of unity, solidarity and caring.”
