A cross section of colleagues from PGW and Head Office visited the Social Care Centre for Children in Al Nouf (Sharjah) on Thursday, 21 April.
The centre is home for 36 children, most of whom were eleven years old or younger. The Thuraya team spent time with them in the afternoon and evening, in the centre’s garden.
The children played on a bouncy castle and slide, enjoyed face painting and danced to music. Many of them joined in a lively game of football. The popcorn machine proved very popular, as did the dinner that followed later in the evening. The Thuraya team handed out goodie bags and toys at the end of the visit.
The Thuraya delegation was briefed about the Centre and the Social Services Department of the Government of Sharjah by Ms. Fatma Al Marzouqi, Head of the Centre. The Thuraya delegation presented her with mini i-Pads and laptops for the children, along with money donated by their colleagues, which will be used to buy clothes, beds and other equipment.
