UAE-based entrepreneur commits 50 transplants for Ukrainian children

DAVOS/DUBAI: Dr. Shamsheer Vayalil, Chairman and Managing Director of VPS Healthcare has announced a commitment of 50 pediatric stem cell transplantations to Ukraine.

The announcement comes alongside the launch of Burjeel Holdings, an intermediary holding company established under VPS Healthcare, on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting. Burjeel Holdings will build on the organization’s legacy of providing an unparalleled continuum of compassionate care across its network of hospitals, specialized clinics, and allied services in the Gulf region and beyond.

“I am pleased to announce our commitment to support those affected by the conflict in Ukraine. This contribution is being made toward the important task of rebuilding a strong community in the war-torn region. We have seen that children, especially those undergoing cancer treatment, are suffering the most in this very unfortunate conflict. Hundreds have already been evacuated to receive life-saving treatments and Burjeel Holdings will look to provide them with the care they desperately need,” said Dr. Shamsheer, who began his entrepreneurial career with a vision to ensure healthcare equity. In his journey towards fulfilling this vision, he has also focused on outreach through humanitarian and relief efforts.

Dr. Shamsheer and VPS Healthcare have been at the forefront of many humanitarian initiatives over the last 15 years. In 2018, VPS Healthcare enabled the treatment of Yemeni war victims at its hospitals in India. In 2021, Dr. Shamsheer rebuilt a flood-damaged primary health centre in Kerala. The organization offered the ‘100 Free Heart Surgeries’ initiative for those in need as a tribute to the late H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

Apart from the stem cell transplantations to support Ukrainian refugees, Dr. Shamsheer also announced additional support on behalf of those who join the pledge of support at Burjeel House in Davos. The Burjeel House will convene intentional, collaborative dialogues on topics from whole body healing to catalyzing equitable health training, scaling impact, and advancing medical and technological innovation on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting.

As an intermediary holding company established under VPS Healthcare, Burjeel Holdings will build on the organization’s legacy of providing an unparalleled continuum of compassionate care across its network of hospitals, specialized clinics, and allied services.

Burjeel Holdings will operate nearly 60 assets catering to all socio-economic segments across a range of brands, including Burjeel Hospitals, Medeor Hospital, LLH Hospital, Lifecare Hospital, and Tajmeel. Its flagship facility, Burjeel Medical City, is the largest private hospital in the UAE and the only ESMO-accredited centre. In addition to having renowned world-class centres of excellence, Burjeel Holdings consolidates the largest diagnostic network in the UAE and the largest comprehensive cancer centre in the nation. The newly launched holding company also brings under its umbrella the largest orthopaedic practice and leading mother and child care provider in the UAE.
