Jatha’s employees with deaf and hearing impairments, autism and mental retardation will benefit from the pact, which includes equipping Jatha’s new building with the necessary facilities to accommodate the disabled.
The agreement was signed by Humoud bin Awdah Al-Ghubainin, senior vice president of Corporate Communications & PR for the SEC, and Abdulaziz Abdulrahman Al-Yahya, Jatha’s chairman of the board.
Jatha helps children between the ages of 2 and 10 through education and rehabilitation. Al-Ghubainin said the SEC will provide computers, cameras, smart boards, equipment for a nursing room and physiotherapy, and medical devices for children with autism, poor learning, Down syndrome, and motor and mental disability, as well as the blind and visually impaired.
The partnership is part of the SEC’s social responsibility strategy.
