Aman Protection and Social Rehabilitation Center opened its new branch yesterday at Sidra Medicine premises to provide more services to parents and children.

During the launch event, an MoU was signed in between Sidra Medicine and Aman Center. The MoU was signed by Amal Abdullatif Al Mannai, CEO of Qatar Foundation for Social Work (QFSW) and Peter Morris, CEO of Sidra Medicine.

The event started with Amal Al Mannai’s speech in which she said: “Today we have signed new partnership with one of the most important institutions in Qatar and we look forward to see more of such agreements. QFSW is always keen to support and strengthen the entities which share the same vision as ours. We aim to work towards achieving well-being between social and health aspects in order to benefit more people of our society.”

“We are here today to document the cooperation between Sidra and QFSW because we have common goals to achieve. We hope to serve children and families suffering from any social problem whether it is medical or physiological,” she added.

While speaking to The Peninsula, Mansoor Al Saadi, Executive Director of Aman Center said: “This MoU will help us work more effectively because such MoUs help us in various ways. Our new office, which has opened its doors in Sidra emergency section, will help us provide better services to parents and children who require help from us. People wanting our help will get free social, legal and rehabilitation consultancy.”

This is the third branch of Aman Center opened in health sector, the first one is located in Women’s Hospita while the second is in Wakra Hospital.

After the inauguration of Aman Center, Peter Morris told The Peninsula: “This MoU is very important to Aman Center and Sidra Medicine, as we both aim to provide best possible help to all the children in Qatar. We have already received 50 cases till now and the sources of these cases were multiple. We are looking forward of being more accessible and reliable. In future we plan to collaborate with Orphans Care Centre (Dreama) another entity working under the umbrella of QFSW.”

While talking to the media, Dr Khalid Al Ansari, Chair of the Department of Emergency at Sidra Medicine, said: “Qatar is just like another country and the problems we face are also similar to other countries. Child abuse is one of the most common case which is found in many other countries. We have always been very active in this area and now we are active to recognise and treat such cases.”

“We aim to take care of social, medical and legal aspects of such cases. Sidra has always aimed to look forward to help in such cases the collaboration with Aman Center will strengthen this pillar and work with dedication towards this field,” Al Ansari added.
