The idea for MAWAIID was born when the founder Ahmad Alrefaei, one day, thought of the requirement of online medical appointments and the need for such a service in Qatar where all medical providers are listed and an appointment is pre-booked for better service. At a later stage, Adel Khashabi – a Qatari entrepreneur - joined forces to add more expertise to the MAWAIID journey. Hence, the idea of MAWAIID was born to contribute to the IT evolution in Qatar.

How did the name MAWAIID come about?

The name MAWAIID which in Arabic literally means “appointments” was chosen to reflect the whole idea and purpose of the App which is to manage the community's healthcare requirements so they can make doctor's appointments easily and take advantage of the convenience of your location.
