Dubai: UAE-based global philanthropic organization, Dubai Cares is once again extending its helping hands to make the lives of the needy better.
This time, the organization, formally associated with the United Nations Department of Global Communications is providing essential anti-bacterial furniture that will help improve the wellbeing and safety of students at Senses Residential and Day Care for Special Needs.
The mix of furniture extended to Senses includes anti-bacterial floor covering solutions, curtains and antimicrobial chairs and desks.
The medical grade anti-bacterial flooring was installed in all classrooms and therapy rooms, along with anti-bacterial curtains, to reduce infection rates and eliminate any potential health risks.
Moreover, some 100 antimicrobial chairs and desks, previously donated to Dubai Cares by Finnish furniture manufacturer, ISKU were directed towards Senses, in order to create a cleaner, healthier and safer environment, for students to study and thrive.
Meanwhile, Mr. Joonas Vikström, Head of ISKU Middle East stated that, “We are highly impressed by the impact Senses Residential and Day Care for Special Needs is creating in the Gulf region. By ensuring the quality learning environment with enhanced ergonomics, healthy materials, together with antimicrobial features, we safeguard students’ health and well-being. Health and safety, combined with the joy of learning, is exactly what we all wish for.”
Dubai Cares is a member of the United Nations Department of Global Communications (UN DGC), as well as a registered non-government organization under IACAD, the charitable activities regulator in Dubai.
The UAE-based organization is authorized to raise funds through direct donations and fundraising campaigns, as well as process all permit approvals with IACAD.
Volunteerism is a powerful tool for Dubai Cares, in order to engage people in tackling development challenges. Dubai Cares rallies the UAE wider community through a large spectrum of volunteering and awareness initiatives that are linked to its global mandate.
