A dedicated medical worker helping save lives, promoting wellness in Dubai


- Advertisment -

Every nurse is drawn to their career because of a desire to care, serve, and help. Richard Pamesa Comia, a staff nurse based in Dubai, is just one of the Filipino medical workers abroad whose intention is to save lives and promote wellness.

Sculpting his overseas career in the host country in 2018, Comia said working as a staff nurse at the Clover Medical Centre has given him the opportunity to connect with people and encourage them to develop health awareness, especially in the dental area.

The Filipino nurse also serves as the marketing manager of the clinic, mainly meeting ‘magnificent’ people who are playing major roles in the Filipino community in the UAE.

As a full-time registered nurse, his main responsibility is to prepare dental rooms, stock inventory, and assist doctors in dental procedures.

When asked why he worked abroad, he said he wanted to experience opportunities abroad and be ‘globally competitive’ in the medical field.

Before boarding the plane to UAE, Comia was working as a staff nurse at the University of Santo Tomas Hospital Emergency Department. “I was blessed with a work that saves people’s lives and help them improve health. I was in a room of action-packed with highly skilled and dedicated professionals,” he said.

Firsthand difficulties

Despite having a comfortable life while growing up, Comia said that he experienced ‘firsthand difficulties’ as his father worked in Saudi Arabia for two decades and without the luxury of advanced technology. He was raised by his mother and experienced the longing for a father for the longest time.

“In times, when I was being challenged, I will always look up to my father and remember that this was also his struggles and he remained strong just to give us a better life,” he added.

Presently, the staff nurse said improving his skills and developing more activities that benefit the Filipino community are all in the pipeline. “At the moment, I just want to focus more on helping our fellow Filipinos during these stressful times in every way possible,” he further added.
