GIVE & GAIN DAY: AL MANZIL CENTRE
May 3, 2018
As part of the HORECA Trade CSR initiative, 7 HORECANS volunteered at the Al Manzil Centre in Sharjah on 19th April 2018 to assist the children with activities such as baking and making jewelry. This center was set up in December 1999 and has grown to over 200 members and is one of GCC’s oldest non-profit groups focusing on social inclusion of persons with disability.
It was a super fun morning bonding with the children not only helping them but learning ourselves. Half the team helped in baking cupcakes in several colors, while the other half helped in making jewelry such as bracelets, earrings and key chains from special beads and stones. The students make these fabulous pieces and then sell them at the center or when they visit companies or have events. The money then goes back into the center for other activities and to support the kids. It was a pleasure to spend half a day with the amazing children and we look forward to further working with Al Manzil and inviting them to our company for a day!
