ALSHAMS AUTISM CENTER

Main aim of the charity

Giving is not just about making a donation, it's about making a difference, this is our main aim...to help and support the children who have been diagnosed with autism and allow them to live like any other normal kids.

How the employee got involved and why

I have been working with DHL for years now and thru project like DHL Got Heart , it has encouraged me to do something good for those kids who are suffering from this condition. I am proud to say that thru my initiatives I am able to help and support children with autism and provide them with special treatments, therapies and much needed respite care.

What work does the employee do for charity?

I work as one of the volunteers in the center .We need these children and young adults with learning difficulties to be heard and helped to live a fulfilling life. We can only do this with others much need support - which is vital. Along with other volunteers , we provide especial tools / therapy to develop their sensors skills so they can be able to communicate.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

if in case our initiative wins and we got heard , we will be able to do these things – but there is still more to do. The number of autistic kids in Iraq is increasing and therefore even if we wanted to stop … we better not. I will continue to give my 100% support to those kids with autism.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

I am not actually expecting for anything in return or to win any prize, what I really want is to help these autistic kids and my initiatives be heard. But if I win, it will surely motivates me to to continue volunteering and give my support to these kids. Also with the support of the people I work with , it will surely help to reach out to families who at times have been on the brink of giving up too. Since we got involved and offered some help for the children obsessed with screens and gaming, these kids were able to communicate using the picture exchange system and its already a reward seeing their happy smiling faces.
