(Khaleej Times (United Arab Emirates) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The delegation offers Nol Blue Cards to the centre's students free of charge.
A delegation from the Strategy and Corporate Governance Sector, Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), visited the Rashid Paediatric Therapy Centre as part of the RTA's community-driven initiatives aimed at cementing the links with various entities in Dubai, particularly the disabled.
The RTA had earlier announced its commitment to equip an ideal classroom at the paediatric centre. The RTA offered Nol Blue Cards to the centre's students free of charge, to be used in public transport, which reflects the RTA's support to this community segment.
Abdul Mohsin Ibrahim Younes, CEO, RTA Strategy and Corporate Governance Sector, said: "The RTA spares no efforts to bolster the social communication with a host of external community organisations, particularly those concerned with social and humanitarian issues. This comes as part of our endeavours to impart in the conscience of employees the culture of volunteerism, philanthropy, and assisting others who are in dire need of material or moral support from the community."
During the visit, the RTA delegation reviewed methods adopted in dealing with special needs children, and was acquainted with the key services as well as educational and training programmes used to assist children to smoothly adapt to the surroundings. The delegation also toured the facilities of the centre. At the end of the visit, Younes gave gifts and mementos to children.
Mariam Othman, director of the centre, said: "Such assistance enables the teams overseeing these centres to offer better services as well as improved educational and training aides or remedial services to the children.
