Abu Dhabi: The Emirates Foundation, the national organisation set up by the Abu Dhabi Government to facilitate public-private funded initiatives for the empowerment of youth across the UAE, in collaboration with Emirates Autism Society and New England Centre, has hosted a special event for autistic children and their families on Wednesday at Mohammad Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Organised by Emirates Foundation’s Takatof volunteers, under the theme of ‘Together We Bring Them Happiness’, the event enabled the children and their parents to participate in entertaining activities. The event further gave the volunteers an opportunity to engage directly with autistic children and make them feel included in every aspect of the event.
