A very special way to mark chil­dren’s day

Khaleej Times - - NATION - Ash­wani Ku­mar

abu dhabi — In­dian Ladies As­so­ci­a­tion (ILA) Abu Dhabi marked the birth an­niver­sary of In­dia’s first prime min­is­ter Jawa­har­lal Nehru — which is cel­e­brated as Chil­dren’s Day across In­dia — with var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties for about 30 kids from Abil­ity Cen­tre in Mo­hamed Bin Zayed City.

Fun ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded ‘Make a Pup­pet’ and ‘Hit the Spongebob’ and each kid was gifted a colour­ing book. Later, the chil­dren wore party hats and had bu­gle in hands as they cut cake.

Abil­ity Cen­tre man­ager Hanaa El­said said the chil­dren were ex­cited in an­tic­i­pa­tion of the event and all of them will have in­ter­est­ing tales to tell their par­ents when they go home.

“From morn­ing it­self, I could see their happy re­ac­tions, feel­ings and emo­tions. The ac­tiv­i­ties were very en­gag­ing and chil­dren en­joyed ev­ery mo­ment of it. I am sure the kids have re­turned home with happy sto­ries to nar­rate to their par­ents,” Hanaa said while thank­ing ILA for mak­ing the day ex­tra special for the kids.

ILA pres­i­dent Su­nita Wa­gle said the as­so­ci­a­tion has been at the fore­front to sup­port and en­cour­age such ac­tiv­i­ties.

“ILA has con­tin­u­ously sup­ported Abil­ity Cen­tre as part of its so­cial wel­fare works. We are also very ex­cited to share the joy with them. We gifted them a sound sys­tem with mi­cro­phones, which would en­able them to carry out out­door ac­tiv­i­ties with ease. We look for­ward to this col­lab­o­ra­tion in fu­ture as well,” she said.

ILA gen­eral sec­re­tary Annu Chouraria said the as­so­ci­a­tion has al­ways been proac­tive in em­bed­ding strong so­cial and cul­tural val­ues within the so­ci­ety. She said special kids do or­di­nary things in ex­tra­or­di­nary way.
