“Kids with special needs need to integrate into the community, and events like this activate their role in the society and enhance their personalities. It also helps them not to feel embarrassed or remain introverted; rather it helps enhance their self-confidence and increase their life skills. This initiative which comes under Rotana Earth sustainable platform helps identify the social core and principals of City Centre Rotana Doha. We support the local community, and create links of compassion and affection," he added. “We seek through this initiative to confirm our commitment to social responsibility initiatives in being part of this community, and to cooperate with all local institutions to serve this country at all levels. I am also pleased to thank all the staff who did great efforts to implement this initiative with hearts full of joy and happiness,” he concluded.

From Social Service department side, Idil Noor Mohamud, Acting Head of Social Services Department of Hamad General Hospital commented, “We are very pleased to know that the families and children reported having fun and stating such occasion does not happen often and thus parents are very happy to see their children smiling and enjoying themselves. Both Hamad and Rumeila are more than thankful to do such ongoing activities to engage our patients and our community as part of collaboration for the benefit of our ill patients
