Sharjah Holding PJSC, a partnership between Majid Al Futtaim – Properties and Sharjah Asset Management Holding, supported Majid Al Futtaim’s ‘Feel the Beat’ initiative by offering complimentary heart check-ups to women in Al Zahia, Sharjah’s premier mixed-use community. The initiative aims to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease in women and it is organized in collaboration with City Centre Clinics.
An open day event was held at Al Jouri Trees Park, inviting all women and their children in the community. Women were offered free heart health tests and check-ups and were able to check their blood pressure, blood sugar and Body Mass Index (BMI) to determine if they are at risk of heart diseases and if they would require a follow-up consultation for further analysis. Participants were also offered discounted packages for further examinations at City Centre Clinics.as part of ‘Feel the Beat’ campaign. Face painting and other interactive games were hosted in the park to engage with children while their moms are getting checked.
Commenting on the initiative, Shadi Al Azzeh, Development Director, Al Zahia, at
Majid Al Futtaim – Communities, said, “Heart disease is one of the most common and life-threatening diseases among women. As a community partner, it is our role to raise awareness among our residents in Al Zahia to take the first step on their journey of living a longer and healthier lifestyle, by creating access to vital medical services and inspiring them to do more for their heart and health.”
