Emirati women have shattered societal barriers, excelling in diverse professional fields. Aster Volunteers, in partnership with Emirates Red Crescent, initiated "Noor 2023" to empower underprivileged Emirati widows and engage with Emirati personnel within Aster UAE. Esteemed women leaders including Ms. Afra Obaid Al Rumaithi, (General Department of Human Rights - Dubai Police) Dr. Joreya Al Ali, and Dr. Shanila Laiju inaugurated the event at Dubai Public Library Hall. Activities ranged from health screenings and BLS Awareness Training led by Mr. Haitham Naeem to creative workshops. A Health Awareness Session was conducted by Dr. Maha Makram. Participants received valuable vouchers from Aster Pharmacy, Aster Opticals, and Medcare Hospitals UAE. The event's success is a tribute to Emirati women's unstoppable spirit and dedication to progress.
