On this Emirati Women’s Day, Emirati Aster Volunteers working with Aster DM Healthcare stepped forward to conduct a health and wellness programme for 50 underprivileged women supported by Emirates Red Crescent.

The event named “Noor – Dreams Empowered” was held at Al Mankhool Library and recognized the indomitable spirit of women who have triumphed over adversities to carve out remarkable paths for themselves.

These sessions were aimed at equipping participants with essential health insights and life-saving skills, thereby further strengthening their ability to navigate life’s challenges.

In addition to the health-focused activities, the event was filled with cultural activities that provided a platform for women to express their creativity and celebrate their diverse cultural heritage. An entertainment session added a joyful touch to the proceedings, offering moments of relaxation and camaraderie.
