In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, practicing social distancing is highly recommended especially during the days of Eid Al-Adha, as families and friends unite to pray together and give alms. 

Even though social gatherings are normal during Eid, avoiding it - at all costs - is essential to reduce the chance of spreading the disease. Here’s why we think it’s important to avoid mass gatherings during Eid Al-Adha:  

  1. Some Covid-19 patients are asymptomatic, so you may never know if there are virus carriers in your gathering 

  2. Maintaining personal hygiene could be difficult during a social gathering where activities are happening everywhere

  3. It could be detrimental to the health of the elderly, children or those who could have compromised immunity


So, in Droobi, we believe that the essence of Eid al Adha is all about sacrifices. Honor its meaningful practice by prioritizing public health and safety over personal interests and try to follow these safety tips during Eid al-Adha:

  1. Send gifts to your loved ones, instead of paying them a visit

  2. Avoid going out unnecessarily and limit shopping trips as much as possible

  3. Connect with relatives online or arrange a virtual gathering

  4. Use disposable food items including utensils and dishes. If disposable items are not feasible, ensure that all non-disposable food items are washed with dish soap and hot water and please don’t share food items that are difficult to clean and sanitize.


Happy Eid from Droobi Family!


Success Stories

Nasser, 52

Diabetes Program

I have been living with type 2 diabetes for 5 years now. I used to struggle to maintain my blood sugar levels under control. Droobi has truly changed my life! My blood sugars are at target now, I lost some weight and changed my eating habits. I am so happy with the daily support I receive from my health coach. They are always super-supportive and positive even in my worse days. I really don't know what would I do without my personal coach. Thank you Droobi for helping me live better with diabetes.

Gestational Diabetes Program

On my 3rd pregnancy, I was informed after doing a test that I had gestational diabetes. I was really shocked because I was healthy in my previous pregnancies. When my doctor recommended Droobi, I thought I will give it a try. My health coach was super reactive and very helpful. She supported me in tracking my blood sugars and make the right food choices every single day. The program helped me overcome my fear and have a healthy delivery and baby. I am still using it even after giving birth.

Prevention program

​I have heard about Droobi online and I decided to give its Prevention Program a try, given that diabetes runs in my family. It’s a very easy program, small steps made me lose weight, exercise more, and reduce the risk of getting chronic disease. Great simple app that offers the support, through reminders, tracking tools, lessons and professional coaches. I’ve been using it over a year and I would recommend it to anyone.
