Emirati builds Africa’s largest charity hospital with personal savings

Ahmed Al Falasi, a UAE national known for winning the esteemed “Arab Hope Makers 2020” prize due to his extraordinary humanitarian efforts in Kenya, is ready to elevate his altruistic work.

Joined by his family, Al Falasi is embarking on a pioneering mission to bring relief to more than 10 million people along the African coast in Zanzibar. Their visionary plan entails creating the largest cutting-edge charitable hospital, with the goal of profoundly impacting lives and empowering communities.

Expressing gratitude for the chance to create a tangible difference in the lives of those in need, Al Falasi shared, “I see this as a small contribution compared to the rights of these deserving individuals. These funds come from my own savings and my family’s, and it’s been a lifelong aspiration of mine to reach this point and bring this project to life.” He conveyed these thoughts in a video posted on his Instagram account.

The seeds of his selfless journey sprouted when he established a haven for children in China. He later shifted his focus to Kenya, utilizing his family’s financial resources to establish a kidney dialysis center, a facility that has since played a pivotal role in delivering life-saving treatment to those in dire need.

Al Falasi’s generosity extended to donating eight state-of-the-art mobile units designed for kidney dialysis and blood transfusion. With four units designated for each country, Lebanon and Kenya, these units aim to offer crucial medical services to people in these nations that are currently grappling with difficult circumstances.

In the video, Al Falasi unveiled his resolve to create the ‘Amnah’ charitable hospital, a decision rooted in meticulous research and personal experiences. He underscored the urgent requirements of millions in Zanzibar and similar areas, who frequently confront the intertwined challenges of health concerns and impoverishment.

Basic healthcare amenities are scarce for these marginalized communities, with numerous medical centers lacking modernization and essential medical equipment. Al Falasi emphasized that inadequate sanitation in these facilities contributes to the spread of diseases, infections, and outbreaks.
