UAE aid for Pakistani school for the deaf

posted on 10/04/2003: 2085 views



The UAE Red Crescent Society, RCS, has delivered to the Pakistan National School for the Deaf, PNSD, a material assistance, including two buses and computers. The UAE Consul General here, Mohammed Hareb Bal Redha Al Muhairbi, on behalf of the UAE Ambassador, Mohammed Hammad Al Shamsi, presented the items to the PNSD board chairwoman, Dr. Huma Sheikh, in a symbolic ceremony held here at the UAE Embassy. Al Muhairbi told the Emirates News Agency, WAM, that the assistance was in line with the directives of President H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and the personal follow up of Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who is also the Chairman of the UAE Red Crescent Authority.



He said the assistance was within the framework of the RCS' continuous humanitarian efforts in support of education for the handicapped persons in Pakistan, adding that the assistance was a reflection of the deep belief and commitment of the UAE government and people on the need to develop human resources by providing equal educational and vocational training opportunities to handicapped persons to enable them live a decent and honourable life in the society.



Dr. Sheikh expressed great appreciation and gratitude to Sheikh Zayed for the gesture. She conveyed, on behalf of the students, staff and the people of the Punjab district, the profound wishes of good health and long life to Sheikh Zayed, and more progress and prosperity to the UAE and its people. She said the PNSD, which was established 35 years ago in Gujralnuwala in the Punjab district, has so far trained 50,000 students, adding that the students undergo special training programmes up to the secondary level in addition to vocational training and the reading of the holy Quran, which, researchers believe, provides the best and natural therapy for the treatment of dumbness. She said the Pakistani government was making significant contributions to the rehabilitation programme by reserving for the trained handicapped persons two per cent of the civil service jobs.
