More funds to help cancer children

Princess Adela bint Abdullah signed an agreement with The Clinics Medical Center in Riyadh on behalf of SANAD Children’s Cancer Charity on Saturday for financial assistance for the care of children afflicted with terminal cancer.
Ayman S. Halawani, chief executive officer of The Clinics Medical Center, signed the agreement on behalf of his organization.
Following the signing ceremony, the princess said that the accord is an agreement for SANAD to avail itself of financial assistance from organizations in the private sector to help children suffering from terminal cancer.
“Private sector organizations have a greater role to play in helping social service organizations to facilitate the implementation of their programs,” she said, pointing out that SANAD has plans to extend its services to a larger area in the health sector to help more cancer patients.
Talking to newsmen after the signing ceremony, Halawani said the agreement would not only look after the interests of patients, but also their parents and families. “Patients will be allowed to take clinical treatment from this facility, while counseling services will be offered to the members of the patients' family.
Located on the capital's Tahlia Street, The Riyadh Clinics is the first of a chain of medical centers. “We provide a variety of medical and health services grouped under one roof in our state-of-the-art facility. We believe that the full spectrum of comprehensive medical services, the convenience and reliability we bring to our patients have been the keys to the success and excellent performance of our medical center,” he said.
The agreement, he said, is part of the company’s commitment to community services. “We hope to extend our services to other areas in the coming years,” Halawani said.
Consultant Medical Director Tariq Al-Shenafi said the Clinics hopes to extend its services to other major cities in the Kingdom and eventually to cover the Gulf region.
He said: “Our strategy is to continue developing opportunities for the expansion of medical care, medical equipment, techniques and treatments that enable facilities, the latest medical equipment and cutting edge medical techniques and treatments.
“Our concept relies on a holistic set of complementary medical services grouped under one roof; medical procedures and services across radiology, laboratory, dermatology, cosmetics, ob-gyn, general surgery, physiotherapy, wellness, nutrition, and dentistry, in addition to a wide range of medical consultations provided by our physicians across several specialties.
“Our first center also provides certain specialized services for women revolving around lifestyle, wellness, and beauty, relying on proven medical procedures.”

  • Cloud 9 has rapidly gained popularity in Jeddah

This is one of the most appropriately named cafes in Jeddah, because its coffee takes you to Cloud 9.

For coffee they have trained baristas who add their own twists on the coffee, such as their salted caramel coffee, served with the rim of the cup coated in salt and caramel to add an extra punch of flavor.

They also serve amazing savory dishes such as their Fattoush Salad, Pronto Pasta. For people seeking healthier options, they have sweeter snacks such as granola with fruits.

And there is even more to the place than its amazing food and coffee — they also serve iced tea, making the cafe ideal for everyone who wants to have a fun time.
