Jumbo aids People of Determination

DUBAI, September 21, 2020

The Jumbo Group has contributed three custom-made buses to the Rashid Centre for People of Determination. Besides, the group has provided additional facilities such as an isolation room at the premises and more equipment for increasing individual physiotherapy sessions for the children.
The biggest need of the hour during a period of social distancing is to reduce the risk of any infection and therefore Jumbo has also contributed towards sanitisation of the centre and purchase of masks and face shields.
Arvind Agrawal, CEO of Jumbo Group, commented: “While the extensive social distancing measures have been tough but necessary to arrest the spread of coronavirus, some of those hit hardest by it are the most vulnerable in our society. As a UAE-born business, we wanted to extend our support to the most special part of our community; our people of determination, to ensure that we can help them adjust to the ‘new normal’. 
“We look forward to doing more as we believe it is our role to support with faster adaption – just as much as the entire city of Dubai is responding quickly to the changes. No one should be left behind in the fight against Covid-19 and we are all responsible for helping our people of determination to walk along-side us through these altering times.” 
In recognition of this contribution, Maryam Othman, Director General of the Rashid Centre for People of Determination presented a certificate of appreciation to Agrawal and expressed her happiness at the Jumbo initiative to empower and enhance the capabilities of the people of determination in their fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. 
Othman said: “We appreciate the efforts of the Jumbo Group and its contribution to meeting the requirements of our students, as they face the same risks as everyone else. Without a doubt this contribution confirms the depth of the relationship that the Rashid Centre for People of Determination has with its partners from the private sector, especially the Jumbo Group, who have supported us over the past years and have extended a helping hand to people of determination particularly during this time.”
Othman added: “The Jumbo Group initiative undoubtedly provides an important aid to the children of Rashid Centre, to help them face the onslaught of Covid-19, in addition to enhancing their self-confidence. There is no doubt that what Jumbo Group has provided to Rashid Centre will remain engraved in our memories, and will enable students to face the current crisis and secure a better future for themselves.”
The Rashid Centre for People of Determination was established in 1994 and has successfully developed vocational training and provided rehabilitation programmes that have enabled students to receive job offers or progress to higher education. -- Tradearabia News Service
