The Fourth Public Awareness Campaign on Celiac Disease

DATE: Thursday, 17 April 2014 (17 Jumada Thani 1435H)

VENUE: Hayat Mall, Riyadh, KSA

As a routine and part of our Awareness Campaign, booths were made available to the Public; Mall is really an excellent place to promote such activities, a warmth greetings and appreciation from the people made our hearts and mind pursue to conduct more campaigns in the future.

The first version of journal and brochures identifying the disease and different recipes for gluten free diet was the highlight of this event. This reflects a continuous success for the group.

Among the attendees was Dr. Badr Al-Sleem, Consultant, Pediatric Gastroenterologist at King Fahad Medical City and the Supervisor of the group's media team expressed his appreciation to all his colleagues and the volunteers for their remarkable efforts.

 

He put emphasis on the members’ responsibilities in every activity, an active communication and discussion with the client to make them understand or at least have an overview of the disease. We are always happy to render public service and see them becoming independent in the promotion of their health. Nevertheless, human nature, not everybody was born to have enough resources to purchase such expensive gluten free products. Fortunately, in collaboration with the Saudi Gastroenterology Association, the group inquired to the Ministry of Health to provide Gluten-Free Products free of charge.

We would like to acknowledge “Seera Company” for their support and providing gluten free samples.
