Abu Dhabi National Insurance Company (ADNIC), one of the leading regional multi-line insurance providers for corporates and individuals, has pledged AED1.5m to the UAE-based Reach campaign in support of its efforts to combat neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).
Catch the latest episode of popular TV show Qalby Etma’an, which turns the spotlight on the burden of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) and the stories of the families affected by them.
Join host Ghaith Al Emirati as he journeys to a village in Senegal to see first-hand the suffering caused by NTDs in developing communities – and learns how a UAE-led fund is working to consign two of these diseases to the history books.
The episode captures the stories of local residents afflicted with lymphatic filariasis, a mosquito-borne NTD that causes irreversible swelling of parts of the body, leading to permanent disability and disfigurement.
From a young baker unable to continue working due to the effects of lymphatic filariasis, to a father reliant on his children for food and necessities, the episode documents the daily struggles faced by sufferers and their families – and shares how the UAE’s Reaching the Last Mile Fund is helping drive the fight to end these diseases for good.
Registration is open for the second annual Reaching the Last Mile charity run, an event hosted by the Abu Dhabi Sports Council in support of the UAE-based Reach Campaign to raise awareness and funds to combat neglected tropical diseases.
