King Salman praised for supporting Disabled Children’s Association

JEDDAH: Prince Sultan bin Salman, chairman of the Disabled Children’s Association, has thanked King Salman for his support since the association’s inception 30 years ago.

Prince Sultan said that the Disabled Children’s Association has enjoyed the benefits of King Salman’s support, which largely contributed to its excellence and commitment to high standards of professional, financial and administrative performance, in addition to its success in building trust with the government, shareholders and partners.

Prince Sultan said: “History creates the future and may even predict it. What we see today at the association and its branches, which are scattered across 11 regions and cities, is a leap of civilization adopted by King Salman and the late Dr. Ghazi Al-Gosaibi 30 years ago.

“The association has been supported by many good people and years of partnerships with all sectors as they believe it is a unique association that can be trusted with people’s money and the futures of their children.”
