Damac supports Dubai autism centre
Dubai, December 2, 2013
Damac Properties, a leading real estate developer in the region, has donated Dh1 million ($272,183) to support the building of a new, high-tech care facility for the Dubai Autism Centre.
Hussain Sajwani, chairman, made the contribution as part of the company’s continued corporate social responsibility programme.
Founded in 2001, the centre is a non-profit organisation in the UAE serving children with autism spectrum disorders.
“It is the role of companies to support the communities in which they operate. The Dubai Autism Centre has made great strides in providing autistic children and their families with support and guidance. I am delighted that we can play a part in the building of a new high-tech centre to further this important work,” said Sajwani.
Mohammed Al Emadi, director general of the centre, said: “We have outgrown our current facilities and it is critically important we move to a new centre which can offer the latest technology and support needed for children with autism. The donation made by Damac will go a long way in us realising that goal.” - TradeArabia News Service
