Supporting People of Determination a National, Social Responsibility
Att.Editors: The following item is from the Emirates News Agency (WAM)

ABU DHABI,Apr 12 (WAM) - Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, United Arab Emirates (UAE) Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, has affirmed that people of determination enjoy a prominent place in the country’s priorities and initiatives.

During his visit to the Zayed Higher Organisation for Humanitarian Care and Special Needs (ZHO), Sheikh Abdullah added that the wise leadership, under President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and the monitoring of Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, spares no efforts in offering assistance to people of determination.

He also stressed that supporting people of determination is a joint national and social responsibility, which requires the combined efforts of the entire community and the public and private sectors, as well as ongoing rehabilitation programmes, to highlight their abilities and talents and the need to provide them with encouraging incentives and awards and equal employment opportunities.

Sheikh Abdullah began his tour by visiting the vocational rehabilitation workshops in the Centre and inspected the sewing workshop for female students. He was briefed by the trainers about the mechanisms of reaching a high quality of products made by students. He also witnessed the launch of the official uniform of the Saaed Company with the "arms of people of determination" in the implementation of the agreement signed between the ZHO and the company.

Sheikh Abdullah also stopped at the treatment section which offers both physical and cognitive therapies and was briefed on the robot laboratory which had served 119 students.

At the Centre's gym, Sheikh Abdullah met with the champion athletes from both Abu Dhabi and Al Ain Rehabilitation and Care Centres.

He praised the efforts made by ZHO to provide care and rehabilitation services to the people of determination, according to the highest international standards, as well as the endeavours to integrate them, ensure their rights and assist their families through training and awareness programmes.
