ENA launches labourer health campaign

The Emirates Nursing Association (ENA) has launched a campaign offering labourers in the UAE the chance to be tested for chronic diseases and receive healthy fasting tips this Ramadan, Khaleej Times has reported. Starting from July 27-28, Ramadan tents set up in all emirates will invite labourers for different tests one hour before Futoor (breaking the fast) and an hour after to check for presence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and other conditions, said Obaid Ismail, head of the ENA. "We have also prepared booklets in four languages, Arabic, English, Hindi and Urdu to guide the workers on healthy habits for the month," said Obaid.
