Dubai Municipality organizes recreation day for orphans



The Environmental Awareness Section at Dubai Municipality on Saturday organized a
recreation day for orphans in cooperation with Beit Al Khair Society in Al Zabeel Park, Dubai.

The drive came in line with the directives of the Dubai Municipality to build community-
based initiatives that contribute in enhancing the level of strategic partnership of different
groups in the society and promoting the role of the Municipality in the relevant areas of
work.

A workshop on ‘Proper use of materials in making and drawing new paintings’ was
organized by Environmental Awareness Section. Children also enjoyed their tour in train,
cycling, face painting, photography, henna designing, competitions and recreational games.
Various gifts were distributed to kids at the end of the day.

Dubai Municipality was the first to offer community-based initiatives and link with its
Strategic Plan as it assumes the responsibility of promoting the principles and practices of
corporate social responsibility towards the community in order to develop it to become
more innovative, productive and competitive.

Around 50 orphans and a number of supervisors attended the programme from Beit Al
Khair Society in addition to Municipality officials. The programme included visit to a number
of recreational areas for children.

In addition to these establishments, the initiative was also supported by Abella, Oasis,
McDonald's, Patchi, Al Rawabi, Al Wasl Club, By Ky Sport Rental, ِAl Mutamayez for Renting
camels and horses and Tawasul Weddings and Events.
