DUBAI, 28th April, 2022 (WAM) — In an effort to ensure a healthy learning environment for people of determination, Dubai Cares, a civil society organisation formally associated with the United Nations Department of Global Communications, announced its support to Senses Residential and Day Care for Special Needs by providing essential anti-bacterial furniture that will help improve the wellbeing and safety of students. 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 Isku, a Finnish furniture manufacturer, were directed towards Senses, in order to create a cleaner, healthier and safer environment, for students to study and thrive.
Speaking about Dubai Cares support to Senses Residential and Day Care for Special Needs, Abdulla Ahmed Alshehhi, Chief Operating Officer at Dubai Cares, said, “People of determination are often at a greater risk for health problems. Hence, providing them with an enriching and safe environment is critical for their health and wellbeing, as well as their educational outcomes. We are delighted to once again extend support to Senses Residential and Day Care for Special Needs, which stems from our belief that children and young people of determination should not be left behind.”
said Joonas Vikström, Head of ISKU Middle East.
“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.”
