Enhancing the social role of the Thalassemia patients
Emirates Thalassemia Society in cooperation with Family Gathering Center Dubai organized an event to celebrate the World Elderly Day in Fairmont Hotel in Dubai along with a number of volunteer Thalassemia patients and Board Members of the Society. A gala lunch was generously arranged with the elderly and customized gifts were also distributed amongst them respectfully. Overall a very humble and a positive day was spent with elders where the Thalassemia patients showed compassion and took care of the elderly to celebrate the elderly day. Special recreational activities were also arranged to boast their confidence. This event clearly showed the important social role of the Thalassemia patients to recognize and make them realize that there are many other difficult scenarios in life but one should always learn to help oneself simultaneously also playing their role effectively and actively towards the community.
