Millennium Corniche Abu Dhabi officials at the centre

Millennium Corniche Abu Dhabi staff visit special needs centre

ABU DHABI, July 27, 2015

Officials from the Millennium Corniche Abu Dhabi Hotel, a leading five-star property in the UAE capital, visited the Al Noor Centre for Children with Special Needs as part of efforts to raise awareness about developmental disabilities.

James Wilson, general manager, Nevine Albert, director of PR and Marketing and George Tahhan, director of Sales, took part in all the kids' activities that day, and also distributed small tokens to the children as well as food delicacies.

"Developmental disabilities appear at the very early years of life, where kids cannot communicate with the outside world, and therefore, cause social, physical, psychological, emotional and economical stress to their families. It is our role to try to embrace them as much as we possibly can", Wilson said.

The Al Noor Centre was established in 1988 and has around 160 students from different countries, cared for by 20 female teachers and trainers, offering classes for teaching the deaf, the blind and the physically disabled, as well as those with a mental disability. Children are also offered workshops for technical training like carpentry and painting, in addition to computers, music and arts that are taught by professional teachers. – TradeArabia News Service
