WaterWipes is proud to announce that Dr. Samah Zarif Ghattas, Medcare Women & Children Hospital has been awarded the Pure Foundation Fund to further support maternity and neonatal care in the UAE.

Dr. Samah Ghattas

Dr. Samah Ghattas has been awarded the Pure Foundation Fund plaque and USD 2000 for her department after being nominated by Irene Barbaza. These are the hands that provided outstanding support and genuine care to Irene Barbaza throughout her pregnancy and birth journey. The doctor’s courage and positivity made Irene feel strong and believe in the impossible through the birth of her two children and she is very thankful to have met Dr. Samah Ghattas.

Celebrating our healthcare heroes

A whole host of healthcare professionals are involved in the pregnancy, birth and post-natal journey; including midwives, doctors, nurses, surgeons, anaesthetists, obstetricians and neonatal professionals. The Pure Foundation Fund puts faces and names to the hands that touch the lives of expectant and new parents, both physically and emotionally, yet so often remain anonymous.

WaterWipes encouraged both healthcare professionals and expectant and new parents to nominate a healthcare professional who had provided exceptional support, compassion and care for their patients or contributed to advancing maternity or neonatal care.

The COVID-19 pandemic has opened people’s eyes to the dedication of our healthcare heroes who have gone above and beyond, and we received some remarkable entries.

WaterWipes would also like to congratulate Dr. Samah Zarif Ghattas and thank all those who nominated a health hero.
