A Qatar Telecom (Qtel) volunteers’ delegation visited Rumailah Hospital recently to share kind words, Ramadan greetings, colouring books, pajamas, dates and bottles of perfume with patients at the hospital’s rehabilitation units.
“During Ramadan, it is important that we make the effort to bring comfort to those who are suffering. For years, Rumailah Hospital has been doing an excellent job attending to the needs of patients who are recovering from serious injuries and illnesses. At Qtel, we want to do our part to bring relief to people, especially children and the elderly, who can benefit from a visit or a kind word during this holy month,” said Adel Al Mutawa, Qtel Executive Director, Group Communications.
Visiting the sick is a key charitable obligation that is greatly encouraged during the holy month of Ramadan, and Qtel provides full support for its employees to undertake this duty, including providing time off and transport to hospitals and health centres across Qatar.
Volunteers spent time with a number of patients receiving treatment at the facility, accompanied by Senior Specialist in Rehabilitation, Dr Muhammad Al Hamawi. The doctor provided the Qtel visitors with a briefing on the hospital services available to patients suffering from spinal cord and cerebral-vascular injuries and illnesses, as well as organic brain diseases and congenital disorders.
The Qtel volunteers visited sections of the hospital caring for handicapped children, the elderly, patients undergoing physical therapy, the brain-injured, and individuals recovering from serious accidents.
