National Aluminium Products Company SAOG (NAPCO), one of the leading extruders of aluminium profiles in the GCC, recently provided 30 wheelchairs to the Oman Association for Disabled.
The donation is in line with the company’s roster of activities in celebration of Eid, as well as its continuous Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives. Established in 1995 through a Ministerial Decision, the Oman Association for Disabled is a distinguished non-profit organization that aims to provide support, education and leisure activities to people with disabilities.
Sayyid Wasfi Jamshid Abdullah Al Said, Chairman of the Board of Directors, NAPCO, said: “We believe that the Oman Association for the Disabled is a very fitting partner in NAPCO’s efforts to reach out to the Omani people. We highly commend the group’s steadfast commitment to foster a better understanding of the needs of people with disabilities among the community. We hope that our contribution to their cause in the spirit of Eid will bring joy to those in need.”
NAPCO has opted to give away 30 European-made wheelchairs, in order to ensure the highest standard and superior quality equipment that will effectively enhance the lives of disabled people. The wheelchairs feature foldable arm-rests and come fully equipped with soft, extra-long and comfortable padding. The fabric seat and back together with the aluminium leg-rest will provide optimal comfort for the user.
“We would like to express our gratitude to NAPCO. We deeply appreciate their show of support to our association by providing us with top-quality wheel chairs for those who have movement disabilities. I hope that this collaborative aid and encouragement will be the beginning of many more to come. I would also like to express my thanks to the beneficiaries as well as all other companies who assisted us in our initiatives,” concluded Mohammed Mohsin Al Lawati, Vice President, Oman Association for Disabled.
