Shell Oman Supports Association of Early Intervention for Children with Disabilities
The partnership will enhance the Association’s services for children with disability and augment the training programme for 45 Omani teachers, therapists and staff working at the Association – and also includes provision of funds to procure therapeutic devices and equipments needed for staff training and for the care and treatment of children who visit the centre.
Commenting on the occasion, Mohammed Al Farsi, General Manager of External Affairs & Business Development in Shell Oman said, “As an Omani Company, we support community development in the Sultanate through active and strong long-term relationships with NGOs and contribute to their sustainable programmes and initiatives, and raise awareness of their positive work in society.”
Sabah Al Bahlani, Chief Executive Officer of the Association said, “We would like to thank Shell Oman for its continued support to the Association. The resources received are going to be used to provide quality services to the children and their families. The Association is always trying to provide holistic services for children in order to help the child’s condition while reducing the burden on the family from going to several organisations to receive multiple services.”
The Association of Early Intervention for Children with Disabilities was formed in 2000, and is the only centre in Oman to provide a comprehensive early intervention programme that covers social, academic and therapeutic services for disabled children and those at risk, from infancy to the age of six, and plays an educational and advocacy role to help parents and public understand the issue of disability, increase social awareness and encourage people to play a proactive role towards children with disability and their families.
