Workers turn chief guests at opening of clinic they built
dubai — Two blue-collared workers were taken aback when they were asked to inaugurate a new healthcare clinic in Dubai.
Madhu Rajput, a plumber and electrician, and Sreekhandan, a foreman, who put their sweat and blood working hard in building the clinic were surprised when the management invited the duo to be the chief guests and inaugurate the clinic.
The duo, along with several other workers, had been working hard for over one month to complete the interior works of the new Right Health Clinic and Pharmacy at the Dubai Investment Park (DIP). The facility, backed by Foundation Holdings, seeks to cater to the needs of workers living in more than 200 labour accommodations in the DIP.
Rajput and Sreekhandan cut the ribbons and enjoyed the attention they received. They noted that this was an honour, the first one in their many years of living in Dubai. They reflected that they no longer need to travel to different locations for healthcare as this clinic will allow them to manage their health in an efficient manner.
