Hyderabad, 8th July 2017: Hyderabad based Aster Prime Hospitals announced it’s new and unique initiative – ‘Aster Volunteers’ in the city today.

To mark its 30th Anniversary, Aster DM Healthcare Group Dubai launched a corporate social responsibility initiative called ‘Aster Volunteers’ across its centers around the globe. This initiative has a two pronged approach: Internally – Aster volunteers can personally take up and see through as many initiatives as possible to give back to society. On the other side, a task force of Aster Volunteers is being built with employees and the public who are willing to spare their precious time and skills for those who need help.
Those who want to be a part of this initiative can register through the website to reach out to the people who require help. Whether it’s medical or non medical support, volunteers will be able to offer their time and skill set to ensure it is matched with those they can help most. For those who need help, they can share details about the nature of the issue at the website, and the suitable volunteers will be able to provide support accordingly. Under this initiative, there will be many check up camps, workshops, medical camps, consultations and much more.
To mark the 30th Anniversary of their group, the Chairman, Aster DM Healthcare, Dr. Azad Moopen said, “Unlike any other professions, the delivery of healthcare is a sacred responsibility and on the occasion of our 30th Anniversary, we would like to extend this opportunity to anybody across the globe who would like to serve people within their capacity. Aster Volunteers is a healthcare and wellness initiative that focuses on spreading hope and inspiring people to look out for each other. All you need is some time on hand and the urge to do something good in your heart, so that you can be there to those in need. So far, over 6000 people across the globe have enrolled and many people have received help. We hope as many people could join hands and serve as many in need. There is no better way to give back to the society.”
On this occasion, Dr Satish Reddy, Managing Director, Aster Prime Hospitals, Hyderabad said, “Aster Prime Hospitals complete successful 10 years in Hyderabad this year and we are happy to announce this initiative by our group that also marks a successful completion of their 30 years in the industry.
