AYG do­nates to Dis­abled Chil­dren Care As­so­ci­a­tion

Muscat Daily - - NATION -

As part of its so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity and com­mu­nity ser­vice pro­gramme, the Al Yousef Group (AYG) has ex­tended a help­ing hand to the Dis­abled Chil­dren Care As­so­ci­a­tion of Mus­sanah.

AYG has pro­vided fi­nan­cial sup­port to the as­so­ci­a­tion for fur­nish­ing its two phys­io­ther­apy halls and a re­sources hall. The group be­lieves that chil­dren with spe­cial needs are an in­te­gral part of the so­ci­ety and that it is ex­tremely im­por­tant to pri­ori­tise their needs.

Faisal bin Muham­mad al Yousef, mem­ber of the board of di­rec­tors of AYG, handed over the do­na­tion cheque to Rahma al No­faliya, chair­per­son of the Omani Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion of Mus­sanah, and a mem­ber of the Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil, at the Al Yousef Group head­quar­ters in Aza­iba.

Yousef said that over the years, AYG has been con­tin­u­ously sup­port­ing ini­tia­tives aimed at strength­en­ing health­care ser­vices and ed­u­ca­tional needs un­der the frame­work of its so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­gramme.

Such so­cial ini­tia­tives are meant to bring about a pos­i­tive change in the so­ci­ety and the en­vi­ron­ment.

Speak­ing on the do­na­tion, he said, “At AYG, we be­lieve in the prin­ci­ple of equal op­por­tu­nity and in­clu­sion for all. Our aim is not only to pro­vide mon­e­tary as­sis­tance for the dif­fer­ently abled chil­dren but also to sup­port and em­power them to live their lives with dig­nity.

“This con­tri­bu­tion has been made to pro­vide su­pe­rior fa­cil­i­ties for these chil­dren so that they can avail bet­ter-qual­ity health­care ser­vices and ed­u­ca­tion, which would boost their self-con­fi­dence and in­te­grate them with the so­ci­ety.”

Rahma said, “The fi­nan­cial sup­port from Al Yousef Group is sure to make a huge dif­fer­ence in the work of the as­so­ci­a­tion. The funds will be used for com­plet­ing the process of equip­ping the halls and cre­at­ing an ap­pro­pri­ate en­vi­ron­ment to serve these chil­dren bet­ter.”

She thanked AYG for its timely and swift re­sponse and sup­port in pro­vid­ing as­sis­tance to the as­so­ci­a­tion and ex­pressed hope for more co­op­er­a­tion in fu­ture.

“The Dis­abled Chil­dren Care As­so­ci­a­tion has been mak­ing a lot of ef­forts to cre­ate an ideal en­vi­ron­ment to sup­port the chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties so that they be­come so­cially ac­com­mo­dated to achieve equal op­por­tu­ni­ties and rights in the so­ci­ety,” she said.

AYG has de­vel­oped a strat­egy that in­cludes a wide range of ini­tia­tives to drive so­cial aware­ness and con­trib­ute to the well-be­ing of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

It has taken sev­eral ini­tia­tives that are ben­e­fi­cial for the so­ci­ety, in­clud­ing its sup­port to the Small and Medium En­ter­prises by pur­chas­ing their prod­ucts, us­ing their ser­vices and train­ing them to de­velop their skills and ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

It is also keen on de­vel­op­ing a cul­ture of en­trepreneur­ship. All these ef­forts have pos­i­tively con­trib­uted to the so­cial and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment of Oman.
