Having fun and enjoying with family and friends is what all children like to do. Saudi Aramco, as part of its social responsibility program, presented one such opportunity to orphans and children with special needs, belonging to different charity organizations and rehabilitation centers, in which they all came together for a fun-filled night in the Aramco premises at the central park in Al-Rehab complex last weekend.
More than 2,200 people attended the event, which was the last such event in 2012 organized by Saudi Aramco, in cooperation with the Saudi Aramco Affairs Dept.
Children of all ages took part in entertainment activities, which included: Telematch games, fun with cartoon characters, a Kids’ Corner, balloon games, traditional Saudi folklore, bazaar, food booths, cultural contests and a health awareness booth set up by the Ministry of Health and Dr. Soliman Faqeeh Hospital.
Dr. Sameer Nasruddin, acting manager of western region, Aramco government affairs, who attended the event took great delight on seeing happy children, their families as well as members of productive families.
He thanked the community services department for organizing such events and advised to keep up the good work.
