On the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Mrs. Asmaa al-Assad participated on Monday in a celebration held by the Syrian Organization for Persons with Disabilities (AAMAL).
The celebration included video selections and drama shows about the necessity of integration and cooperation between the families and organizations concerned in order to diagnose the problems of hearing at children in early stages. They also included glimpses about the psychological and functional rehabilitation offered by specialists and trainers with the Organization.
The shows also concentrated on the high percentage of successes achieved by the treatment operations after the early detection of the hearing problems and there were selections about emotive moments for children while they were restoring hearing after completing their surgery operations.
Graduation certificates were distributed to a new batch of Master students of Language and Speech. They are the 5th batch of graduated students within this program launched by AAMAL in cooperation with Damascus University to feed the institutions concerned with new cadres.
On the sidelines of the event, Mrs. Asmaa al-Assad visited a special exhibition held by AAMAL children under the title “Crossing” showcasing the works of 10 children and 10 plastic artists who completed pictures which were painted by the children.
The pictures show hope and optimism in future.
