Bollywood actor and model Sonu Sood visited Thumbay Hospital, Dubai, on March 19, to help launch the hospital’s ‘Taxi Drivers Wellness Week’.
The special programme is being held across all of Thumbay Group’s hospitals and clinics in the UAE, to offer taxi drivers in the country some free health services.
After being welcomed by Dr Ashutosh Sood, COO of Thumbay Hospital, Dubai, and Dr Sameer Kumar, Assistant Administrative Director, Thumbay Dental Hospital, Dubai, Sonu was taken on a tour of the two hospitals.
He was part of the formal launch of the ‘Taxi Drivers Wellness Week’ campaign and took out some time to meet with the cabbies in attendance, as well as other visitors. Sonu also obliged fan requests, posing for some photos and signing autographs, too.
The ‘Taxi Drivers Wellness Week’ is on until March 24. During this time, taxi drivers can avail several services, free-of-cost, at the Thumbay Group’s hospitals and clinics. These include a health check-up, a General Practitioner consultation, blood sugar and blood pressure tests, weight and BMI check-ups, an eye test, a dental consultation, teeth cleaning and demonstrations of exercises to combat neck and back pain.
According to Thumbay Group, attending cabbies will be given free coffee and lunch coupons. Plus, they stand a chance to win a return ticket to their hometown, in a draw that has been organised as part of the campaign.
Might be worth mentioning to your cabbie, during your next taxi ride!
