Alpen Capital and Sarasin-Alpen pledge their support to the Association for the Welfare of the Handicapped

Muscat, 19th December, 2012

In keeping with their community development efforts, Alpen Capital and Sarasin-Alpen collaborated with the Association for the Welfare of the Handicapped in Muscat. All staff of the organisations gathered at the offices of the Association for a two hour activity with the kids and donated office appliances worth RO 5000.

The organisations supplied new air conditioners for the Association to provide a more comfortable environment for the kids. All staff of the organisations got together and painted the kid’s TV room and also handed over gifts to all the kids from the Association.

The Association for the Welfare of the Handicapped has been engaged in the welfare of the handicapped people for several years. They have been helping the handicapped people to enhance their skills and find employment.
