Calling all medical degree holders! UAE’s Ministry of Health has opened its doors to volunteers who would like to support the fight against COVID-19. The novel coronavirus has now infected over 1.3 million people worldwide, of which over 2,000 patients are based in the UAE.
The Ministry of Health shared an announcement on social media in search of medical personnel looking to volunteer during this challenging period – "MOHAP announces the opening of volunteering for the national campaign to combat Coronavirus (Covid-19), following the principle of social responsibility, and enhancing the cooperation spirit between society members."
Here’s the criteria you need to meet prior to application:
1. All volunteers must be residents or citizens of the UAE with a valid Emirates ID
2. Must have the ability to communicate in both, English and Arabic.
3. Must have a degree in any medical field.
4. Volunteers will work in shifts and must be open to morning or night shifts – or both.
Do you fit the bill? Contact the Ministry of Health on 80011111 or visit its website here to apply directly.
We at Grazia would like to thank all medical staff on the frontlines in the battle against COVID-19 across the world. You are our heroes!
