The Year of Zayed Insurance Card project in collaboration with private sector insurers has been launched by Dubai Health Authority (DHA).
The project focuses on providing free health insurance cover to more than 100 citizens with financial trouble.
It added that the Year of Zayed Insurance card will cover a maximum sum of AED150,000 per person insured.
This initiative was announced by Humaid Al Qutami, the director general, at a ceremony to celebrate the Year of Zayed which marks 100 years since the birth of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the UAE.
“The Year of Zayed has helped us reinforce all the values and principles embodied by Sheikh Zayed. Our founding father was known regionally and globally for his humanity, generosity and charity… DHA aims to continue the legacy of our founding father.”, said Al Qutami.
Khalid Al Jallaf, chairman of the Year of Zayed team at the DHA, said as part of the Year of Zayed initiatives, more than 200 children with congenital heart abnormalities received free surgery through the Nabadat programme.
Nabadat (heartbeat in Arabic), is a programme launched by the Mohammed bin Rashid Charity and Humanitarian Establishment (MBRCHE) in collaboration with DHA to alleviate the suffering of impoverished children with congenital heart disease (CHD).
