Reinforcing its corporate social responsibility efforts, ALSAYER Holding celebrated Kuwait National and Liberation Day by supporting the ‘Our Champion Children with Us’ campaign, in partnership with ‘Play and Think’, a specialized educational and counseling center for differently-abled children.

The spirit of the event was to encourage a human rights-based approach to ensure that the more than 20,000 persons who are differently-abled and have special needs receive equal opportunities for development, learning, social inclusiveness, and welfare. Such initiatives motivate everyone to support the country’s Vision 2035, New Kuwait development plan and UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of providing all people with Good Health and Well-Being , Quality Education, Equality, and Partnerships for the Goals.

Speaking on the occasion, Founder of Play and Think, Dr. Awathif Al Rubaian, said that staff at the Center, who are certified in rehabilitation services, offer early, ongoing interventions to improve lifestyle functioning of these children, and help them develop to be independent. He noted that the Center has so far trained around 100 children to identify their skills and enhance it to empower their gifted talents gradually and scientifically. However, he added that this needs to be supported by everyone, including parents, society, authorities, and companies who value it as their responsibility to care.

The event, held at Kuwait Sea Club, was attended by more than 250 communities including 50 special needs children with their families, volunteers, and key delegates, to view the creative activities and fun-filled games for the children to make it memorable for them.

According to Group Manager, Corporate Excellence at AlSayer, Eng. Nehad Al Haj Ali, “ALSAYER welcomes every opportunity to build a social partnership to empower differently-abled individuals. Our aim is to integrate children with special needs and raise awareness about their potential to lead productive and dignified lives. So, we encourage private sectors and voluntary groups to adopt such initiatives to build a change to bring quality human values.”
