Ooredoo and The Leo Messi Foundation recently launched the first mobile health clinics for Indonesia.

The launch was held in Jogja, the capital of the Yogyakarta Special Region in Java, and marked the first step in the on-going expansion of the two organizations' healthcare initiative announced in May.

In addition to providing people with free services including medical checks, dental checks, nutritional advice and vitamin distribution, the clinics will also focus on the importance of education and healthy living for communities.

The launch ceremony was attended by H.E. Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohammed Bin Saud Al Thani, Ooredoo chairman and chairman of the board of commissioners of Ooredoo’s company in Indonesia, Indosat; Dr. Nasser Marafih, Group CEO, Ooredoo; Alexander Rusli, President Director & CEO, Indosat; and representatives of Jogja’s local government.

“These Mobile Health Clinics are an investment in the future of the communities we serve,” said H.E. Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohammed Bin Saud Al Thani.

The Ooredoo Mobile Health Clinic initiative was launched in 2013 in partnership with the Leo Messi Foundation. As part of this partnership, the two organizations are providing healthcare in rural areas across Ooredoo’s footprint in Southeast Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, aiming to reach more than two million young people with services by 2016.

Ooredoo also works with football hero Leo Messi as its global brand ambassador.
