Hamad Medical Corporation’s (HMC) Corporate Communications Department hosted its ‘Volunteers’ Recognition Day’ recently to acknowledge individuals, who dedicated their time and energy to support the healthcare provider in successfully hosting various community engagement events during 2018.
Ali al Khater, chief communications officer, Corporate Communications Department, said a key objective of the recognition event was to strengthen the relationship between HMC and voluntary organisations in the country. Over 250 volunteers from various non-profit organisations were recognised for their support of community activities that were held as part of a number of health promotion campaigns, including events for World Kidney Day, World Obesity Day, World Diabetes Dayand Qatar National Day.
Khater, who is also chair of the Ministry of Public Health’s Healthcare Communications Committee, thanked the volunteers for their service and described their contributions as “invaluable”. He said their participation was instrumental in the success of community engagement events and activities held throughout 2018.
Mohamed al Dosari, assistant executive director, Public Relations, led the ceremony on behalf of the Corporate Communications Department, presenting attendees with a certificate of appreciation and a gift.
“I thank you for your service. Without you, many of our community engagement events would not have been possible. Today’s event is about recognising you and expressing how much we value your dedication,” said Dosari.
“The important contribution you made toward many of the key community engagement events and activities managed by the Corporate Communications Department is praiseworthy. Without your support, many of these events would not have taken place,” he added.
A video recognising the volunteers and their contributions was screened during the event.
