HE Mouza Suhail Al Muhairi, Executive Director of Food Safety Sector at Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority, formally opened the second exhibition of Special Needs People's products at ADFCA premises.
The two-day exhibition, organized by the Authority's community service arm 'Auwn,' showcased a collection of exquisite artifacts and hand-made products manufactured by special needs people from the Zayed Foundation for Humanitarian Care, Special Needs People and Minors. A large number of ADFCA staff and others visited the exhibition and expressed their admiration for the products.
Through the exhibition, ADFCA and Auwn sought to bring home the importance of supporting special needs people and their engagements, thereby contributing to their integration into the mainstream.
Ali Al Saad, Acting Director of Communication and Community Service at ADFCA, said the exhibition was not just an attempt at instilling confidence among the special needs people and their guardians, but also a genuine effort at introducing the products they manufactured, which stood out for their beauty and quality as well. "Auwn seeks to translate the vision of the Government of Abu Dhabi for the disadvantaged sections of the community into concrete reality. Sustainable development of the community is possible only when these sections and their creativity are woven into the fabric of our mainstream. Their sense of belonging to the community can be strengthened only by integrating them into the society at all levels," he pointed out.
The participants gave away their own products as gifts to senior ADFCA officials, who appreciated their work and extolled it for its quality and elegance.
