United Engineering Services (UES), one of the leading oilfield, marine and defence engineering services companies in the Sultanate has launched a corporate social responsibility (CSR) activity with the Rehabilitation Centres in Al Khoud.
At a ceremony held last week, UES officials pledged two electrical wheelchairs, 20 regular wheel chairs, 20 walkers and four laptops across the two centres. Usama Barwani, managing director, UES, said, "UES places strong emphasis on measuring its success, beyond just business and financial gain.
"Our contribution towards community development is equally important. We are pleased to partner with the Rehabilitation Centres and bring about a positive change in the lives of fellow citizens."
One of the centres where the initiative is being conducted is the Rehabilitation Centre for the Disabled (age group of 15-25 years) wherein students receive treatment and rehabilitation services. The second centre under its purview is the Disabled Child Care Centre (3-14 years), wherein children are taught soft skills.
Sameera bint Khudadat Al Shehani, director, Disabled Child Care Centre and Mubarak bin Suleiman Al Qasmi, director, Rehabilitation Centre for the Disabled lauded UES's efforts in supporting the centre. They said, "We are grateful to UES' unprecedented efforts. The company continues to set a benchmark for social activities that are in the best interests of
serving our community.
"We hope this encourages more private sector companies to come forward to support our centres."
