Al Shirawi Celebrates World Heart Day 2015

When it comes to empowering and encouraging its employees to make healthy choices, Al Shirawi definitely takes the center stage. Taking the same tradition forward, the Engineering Services Group celebrated the World Heart Day on 29th of September in the Ras Al Khor facility.

An awareness program was organized where experts from the field were invited to share their knowledge and information about heart diseases and stroke prevention. The employees were encouraged to participate in the program and raise their concerns directly to the medical experts.

World Heart Day is celebrated globally on 29th of September every year. It aims to promote the significance of healthy heart across the globe by creating a dialog on the importance of heart health, educating people on ways to keep their heart healthy and encouraging them to make lifestyle changes to improve its condition. Every year a brand new theme is selected to tackle the subject of heart health from all angles. This year the theme was about ‘Creating Heart-Healthy Environments’. The main focus was placed upon encouraging people to reduce cardiovascular risk and promote a heart-healthy planet not just for themselves but for everyone around by ensuring that everybody has a chance to make healthy heart choices wherever they live, work and play.
