Almost 36% of Zayed Dialysis Centre is built.


The project is set to be completed within 225 days and will be finalised in September 2020.

The Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai (IACAD) on Monday announced that the construction of the Zayed Dialysis Centre is approximately 36 per cent complete.

The centre, located in Al-Twar 3 area, is a joint project between IACAD and Dubai Health Authority (DHA), Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation (AMAF), as well as contributing charities, including Dar Al Ber Society, Beit Al Khair Society and Dubai Charity Association. Dubai Islamic Banks (DIB) and Noor Bank also supported the project.

As part of the directives of the wise leadership to support charitable and humanitarian causes, the project is testament to the UAE’s strong global standing in terms of charitable efforts.

The report stated that the project is set to be completed within 225 days and will be finalised in September 2020.

All of the supervision offices’ equipment has been acquired, in addition to the completion of the substructure. As much as 98 per cent of concrete structure is also completed. The exterior and interior claddings and electro-mechanical work, meanwhile, are in progress. Construction of Zayed Dialysis Centre started on July 21, 2019.

The project is in line with IACAD’s commitment to Article 9 of the 50-Year-Charter launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

A Dh36,818,000 contract to build the Zayed Dialysis Centre was announced last year. The design and construction of the centre are expected to be completed within 18 months from the date of signing the contract.

The opening of Zayed Dialysis Centre will also underscore Dubai’s standing as a major regional destination for medical tourism. It will help tourists on short stays in the country to get treatment of highest international standards.

A dialysis unit will be built outside the hospital, which is a licensed medical facility that provides services to dialysis patients on a regular basis, in addition to dialysis training at home.

The centre will have 30 per cent of its capacity – 40 beds – allocated to cases from contributing charities, who will be treated for free.
