More than 900 disabled people to benefit from Oman LNG pact - Muscat

As part of its corporate social responsibility initiative, Oman LNG will provide funds for the purchase of wheelchairs and other equipment for over 900 physically challenged in the country.

An agreement to this effect was signed between the Ministry of Social Development (MoSD), Oman Association for Disabled and Oman LNG on Sunday. 

Khalid al Massan, chief corporate affairs officer, Oman LNG said, “We have signed this pact with the Oman Association for Disabled to fund purchase of equipment worth RO250,000 for the physically challenged.”
Meanwhile, H E Dr Yahya bin Badr al Mawali, Undersecretary in MoSD said the ministry is making all efforts to support the physically challenged.

“We are looking forward to the day when every physically challenged person will operate on his own and have an  individual identity.”

H E Dr Mawali said that the ministry has joined hands with non-governmental organisations to reach out to as many physically challenged as possible.

“We found that many physically challenged were not receiving the benefits provided by the ministry. So, we have joined hands with these organisations to ensure that the benefits provided by us reach the needy.”
He said the ministry is also planning projects in education, tourism and other sectors to support the physically challenged economically.
