The Pakistan Association Dubai has completed the project of Pakistan Centre, the world’s largest community centre for overseas Pakistanis.
The project was officially launched on August 14th 2016 under the theme of One Nation One Dream and built upon the concept of ‘Own A Brick’. A total of 17,000 bricks were assigned for the project with each brick for Dh 1,000. The community was encouraged to own a brick/s which automatically made them members of the organization.
The Dh 17 million project encompasses a state of the art not for profit Pakistan Medical Centre, rehab/fitness centre, seminar rooms, business incubation centre, restaurant, sports café, ladies and gents mosque, and an admin block. It will be a “center of excellence” and a will be a source of pride for 1.5 million Pakistanis residing in the UAE and a hub where other communities can network and mingle.
The hallmark of this landmark project is a not –for –profit medical center open to all nationalities. It is a beacon of hope for those unable to bear the burgeoning medical costs; the state of the art community healthcare facility would treat its patients with utmost care and love.
Titled as the Pakistan Medical Center (PMC), it will be a multispecialty polyclinic having multiple units like pediatrics, dental, women’s health, radiology, and lab, amongst several other units. PMC will serve people of all nationalities at an affordable cost.
Service would be provided through three tiers.
- Deserving: Those who claim that they cannot afford healthcare will be treated completely free of cost
- Payable: Those who can bear the costs of being treated at PMC
- Insurance: People having insurance recognized by PMC
The idea of a purpose built facility arose during the last decade, when the Medical Wing at PAD started organizing free medical camps every month. Over 27,000 patients have been served in 120+ free medical camps. The team also participates in the Honor Labor initiative in line with the Government of Dubai and visits labor accommodations’ to provide basic healthcare to the blue collar workers.
U.A.E’s Minister of Tolerance H.E. Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan laid the foundation stone of the project in 2017. The Dar Al Ber Society is the local charity partner of PAD/PMC.
Through your generosity we have secured Dh17 million and will need your continued support to make this project a success.
The project is supported by Community Development Authority, Government of Dubai.
