Filming in Dubai for latest Welfare Awards video

Good Call Media’s co-owner, Nik Wood, interviews Wadima on stage at the Awards event in Abu Dhabi.

In the latest of our series we feature the full-length video highlighting the work of Wadima Matar AlDhaheri of the United Arab Emirates who was the Middle East winner of the World Veterinary Association’s 2022 Global Welfare Awards, supported by Ceva, which we shot over two days in the United Arab Emirates.

Wadima’s proud mother joined her on stage to receive the Award

Wadima was one of the first young vets to qualify at the UAE’s own veterinary university and, as well as working in the municipality’s own veterinary centre in Dubai, also works in the Dubai Safari Park on a regular basis. She has also worked on voluntary programmes in different areas of the world, including a programme to rescue cheetahs in a remote area of Africa.

Her home area of the United Arab Emirates was the venue for the 2022 Awards which were held during the welcome event at the WVA’s 37th Annual Congress in Abu Dhabi…the first live event for the Association since the Covid lockdowns globally.
