Who we are

Our Story

Fawzia Sultan Rehabilitation Institute (FSRI)was founded in 2006 as a non-profit, specialist healthcare institution.

Our President and Medical Director, Dr. Elham Al-Hamdan, initially set out to establish a physiotherapy clinic in Kuwait; something she realized was a glaring gap within the country’s healthcare landscape. However, Dr. Elham soon discovered that the needs of the community in Kuwaiti ran much deeper, and the original mission quickly grew and developed to reflect this; and with that, the idea for FSRI was born.

FSRI has evolved, becoming a holistic medical institution providing high quality, multi-disciplinary services, whilst also serving as a regional hub for health and wellness, research, education & advocacy

Our Community

Our Community

From the very beginning, FSRI has been a firm believer in community outreach, capacity building and volunteer initiatives, and we consider these to be key components in our mission to promote health & wellness across Kuwait’s society. As a non-profit organization, we know that community initiatives can be powerful tools to not only create awareness, but also affect real change within our society.

Our goal has always been to empower the local community with knowledge and education, in order to promote a national sense of health consciousness. We strive to advocate for preventive medicine by endorsing health and wellness as ways of life. We are also dedicated to helping improve and develop the healthcare sector in Kuwait, through education, training, research and community initiatives.

We consider ourselves to be highly active members of the thriving civic society in Kuwait, often partnering with other non-profits and NGOs in the country who share similar goals and values. We are also proud of our rich and diverse program of community initiatives, which aims to raise awareness and rally support for a myriad of topics affecting our society. We engage our private sector partners as well, working strategically with CSR departments at companies from across all different sectors, to garner their support for health initiatives.

One of our biggest and most successful initiatives to date is RunQ8. What began as a relatively small charity race in 2010 has now become one of the most prominent community healthcare initiatives in the country. Today, RunQ8 aims to raise awareness of and funds for CERC, helping children who have been unable to obtain the treatment and support they need elsewhere and providing them access to much needed treatment for free or at a subsidized lower cost.
