Diyar Al Muharraq, one of the largest real estate development companies in the Kingdom of Bahrain, recently participated in the National Genome Project at its Manama headquarters, wherein Diyar’s employees participated as volunteers in the National campaign.

We would also like to laud the Ministry of Health’s efforts in launching the National Genome Centre, which further cements its position as a leading centre across countries in the region by effectively providing an interactive platform for manufacturing samples to be used in exploratory studies and research.”

“Diyar Al Muharraq will continue to maintain its proactive stance in supporting all national initiatives across various sectors and fields, and we actively encouraged all our employees to participate in the National Genome Program given the vital importance of the National Genome Centre. Our support comes in line with our vision behind, which seeks to encourage local community and the residents of Diyar Al Muharraq in particular, to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Diyar’s Masterplan has been developed to include parks, green spaces, community centres, health clubs, running and cycling paths, and other key facilities to help achieve this goal,” he added.
