ET AJMAN – COMMUNITY AWARENESS – BP_SUGAR TESTING

Starting Sunday 13, 2016, Ajman Police, in collaboration with Ajman Traffic Department, organized Traffic Week in Ajman at the corniche.

The aim of the event was to create awareness about the traffic rules, ongoing activities, projects and achievements so far the police department has accomplished in the field of traffic management. There were several allied departments that worked in partnership with the main functionary. Those allied department notably were Ajman Education department, Ajman Health department, Abu Dhabi Traffic department, Sharjah Police department, Sharjah Police Hospital, Ajman Municipality, Private Hotels, restaurants, traditional cookery and many more.

The day started with a Pink Caravan Parade on the main Corniche road passing in-front of the exhibition venue. The Caravan consisted of a brigade of horse-riders, wearing traditional pink dresses that commemorates the events whenever it is organized across the length and breadth of UAE. By 11.00 am the exhibition was inaugurated by the Chief of Ajman Police, who then took a grand round of each and every stall of the exhibition. Makkah Medical Equipment & Drug Store (MMDS) under the ambient of Ajman Health Education had also set up a stall to facilitate the health awareness drive amongst common people. The hallmark of the MMDS’s exhibit was to testify Blood Glucose levels and Blood Pressure apart from distribution of gifts. A large number of health conscious people visited the stall to get the benefits of their BP and Sugar checked, to remain on the pulse of their health outlook.

The services MMDS offered was completely free of charge. The Chief of Police had also visited our stall and to have his BP and Sugar levels checked. Furthermore, other staff of Ajman Chief also got their health status assessed. Owner of MMDS and Makkah Group of Pharmacies, Dr. Mushfiq Ali Khan, himself checked the BP and glucose of those notable visitors.

The event was overwhelmingly appreciated especially the role of Makkah Medical Equipment & Drug Store was very well received. Subservient to the tradition that MMDS always take part in such health awareness campaigns so was the Traffic Week. MMDS is conceited to be the part of nation building humanitarian activities. Such benevolent actions are congruent to our Vision and Mission Statements i.e. “TO BUILD A HEALTHY SOCIETY” and “TO IMPROVE QUALITY OF HUMAN LIFE”.
