CSR Middle East, CSR dedicated platform with 3.555 corporate members in the Middle East.
Dulsco, a regional leader in human resource solutions and waste management services, in association with Groupon has launched a campaign called ‘Gift a free medical check-up for a worker’. This charity campaign was launched to help workers monitor their health. Around 1000 workers in UAE are expected to benefit from this campaign.
Dulsco has a state-of-the-art medical clinic that offers comprehensive medical services to private and corporate patients in the UAE. Conveniently located in Al Quoz, the clinic provides quality health services at an affordable price with the assistance of a team of renowned medical practitioners. The clinic has facilities which include a laboratory, radiology centres, pharmacy, and much more and is touted as one of the best out-patient medical centres in Dubai.
To ensure workers take appropriate health measures, especially during summer, Dulsco and Groupon have joined forces to set up a unique CSR driven initiative. Groupon users can help the cause by clicking the “Support” button located on the exclusive page set up for the campaign. For every 10 unique “Support” clicks that the Groupon page receives, Dulsco will gift a free medical check-up coupon to a worker. Dulsco will identify labour camps and distribute these coupons to the workers. Workers would then need to visit the Dulsco Medical Clinic in Al Quoz to avail this offer.
“Contribution to society is one of Dulsco’s core values. At Dulsco we regard health as an important factor to work efficiently. Through this cause, Dulsco aims to provide workers access to health checkups and medical advice, teach them how to take preventive measures, maintain oral hygiene and lead a healthy lifestyle. Dulsco along with Groupon also aims to generate awareness and highlight the importance of timely health checkups among workers,” said Mubarak Kozhikkal, Head of Dulsco Medical Services.
“As part of this campaign workers can consult with a practitioner about their medical issues and get good valuable advice with regard to their health. The medical checkups include physician consultation, height, weight and body mass index (BMI) check, blood sugar and blood pressure monitoring. In addition, workers will receive consultation on dietary, nutritional and oral hygiene and will be given information on handling and preventing heat strokes and other important health tips that can be practised in their daily routine,” concluded Mubarak.
Mazen Mourad, Chief Operating Officer of Groupon Middle East said, “This is an ideal example of harnessing the benefits of e-commerce for a worthy cause. We are proud to be able to use the power of Groupon to support the wellbeing of our local community”.
