Healthcare provider Aster DM Healthcare’s charitable arm Aster DM Foundation has donated AED 1.4 million to help rebuild 500 houses at the earthquake-stricken villages in Nepal, including 21 homes of Aster employees that were destroyed by the tragedy.

Dr Azad Moopen, chairman and managing director of Aster DM Healthcare delivered the contribution to His Excellency Dhananjay Jha, Nepal ambassador to the UAE, in the presence of other dignitaries during a handover ceremony.

“Nepal and its people are very close to our hearts and aid for the Himalayan nation is crucial at present. From our own ranks, we have 21 employees affected by the devastating quake. Since this earthquake hit so close to home, Aster DM Foundation has promised them assistance in rebuilding their homes to do what we can do at this time. We would like to also thank a number of our employees at Aster DM Healthcare who came together and contributed a day’s salary to the fund,” says Moopen.

While receiving the contribution, Jha expresses, “We are extremely grateful to Dr Moopen and his Foundation for coming forward to help the grieving Nepali families affected by the deadliest earthquake in eight decades. This donation will go towards the efforts to help the victims of the devastating earthquakes.”
