Hanan Al Kuwari PhD, Managing Director of HMC received Tasweeq’s donation from Mr. Abdulla Abdul Malek, Executive Director-Administrative at Tasweeq, on behalf of Tasweeq CEO Mr. Saad Bin Abdulla Al Kuwari.
Dr. Al Kuwari expressed HMC’s gratitude to Tasweeq for the donation which is a result of the strong partnerships Hamad has built with the public and private sector.
Mr. Mohamad Mubarak Al Noimi, Chief of Communication and Chief of Staff at the Managing Director’s Office at HMC, Dr. Hassan Al Malki, Head of the Nephrology Section at HMC, and Mr. Abdulla Al Marri, Director of Public Relations at Tasweeq were present during the handover of the donation.
Dr. Hassan Al Malki said that kidney diseases are becoming more prevalent in Qatar.
“With the steady population growth in Qatar, HMC is working to increase the number of kidney dialysis units and stations and to enhance the peritoneal dialysis and home kidney dialysis program,” Dr. Al Malki said.
