Hi @Beace and welcome to Versus Arthritis Online Community here in the UK.
You are welcome to post and join in across the Community, although we don't generally allow recruitment campaigns there is no harm in asking for anyone to get in touch to form a local support group.
Private contact details should only be made through our private Messaging System here on the forums, hence the removal of the telephone contact number.
If you have any questions regarding ankylosing spondylitis or want to provide support, call in for a chat or just say how you are getting on, you will be most welcome.
I don't have AS nor live in the UAE, but wanted to reassure you that everyone here understands pain and will be able to relate to your issues. If you want to join in with us here we would make you very welcome @Beace
I can totally imagine though how hard it must be when your first language isn't the one most commonly used where you live. Potentially very isolating.
Good luck finding some fellow sufferers in the UAE. I used to travel quite often to Dubai to teach Health and Safety to people in the oil industry and absolutely loved the place especially the dry heat. Regrettably I had to stop going as my OA got worse and my meds were changed.
