Mr. Ahmed Ayesh Al-Najjar, representative of MuslimCare Malaysia, signed a memorandum of understanding with the Treasurer and Director-General of Emaar Association for Development and Rehabilitation, Mr. Mahmoud El-Akkad and Mr. Anwar Abu Musa, respectively. The subject of this memorandum was a project to improve rehabilitation services at the Basma School and Center for People with Disabilities, which is located at the association’s headquarters in Khan Younis governorate.
According to Al-Najjar, this project is part of a series of projects carried out in collaboration with the Emaar Association for Development and Rehabilitation, the MuslimCare Malaysia Foundation’s strategic partner in the Gaza Strip. The Malaysian Foundation was founded in the organization five years ago. This foundation’s mission is to provide audio and verbal rehabilitation services to children who have cochlear implants, are hard of hearing, have developmental disabilities, or are learning disabled.
Furthermore, Abu Musa stated that this project is a result of an urgent need during the political, health, and social conditions experienced by Gaza Strip citizens, particularly for those with disabilities. Through this project, the association hopes to contribute to the improvement of the target group’s psychological, behavioral, and educational capabilities by providing hearing and verbal rehabilitation sessions for children with disabilities, as well as batteries for hearing aids.
The Association’s director general added that the project aims to develop the work team’s capabilities by implementing a series of training courses, as well as implementing recreational activities for the target groups and providing the school and kindergarten team with the necessary staff to support teachers and technicians. It is worth noting that this project will benefit over 500 cases.
At the end of the meeting, Al-Akkad, on behalf of the association’s board of directors, represented by its president Dr. Rami Al-Ghamry, expressed his thanks and gratitude of MuslimCare Malaysia Foundation for its good efforts in serving the citizens in the Gaza Strip. Lastly, an inspection tour was carried out at the Basma School and Center to see the services, where the representative of MuslimCare Malaysia expressed his great admiration for the high-end services provided.
