As everyone and their mother must know already, my son Khalid is autistic, and Alhamdulillah, with treatment we’ve seen really amazing progress. He has started to talk- he has five or six words in his vocabulary now and we are overjoyed. Alhamdulillah, we’ve been able to pay for this therapy he needs, but there are eight families here who can’t afford to have their children treated.
The Red Crescent of the UAE and the Child Early Intervention Medical Center are hosting a walk to raise funds for them. I am posting the invite here, and would be grateful if people could attend or spread the word to anyone and everyone in the UAE.
The walk is at Zaabeel Park, at 5pm, Thursday the 30th of April. There will be fun activities for children and the chance to meet and learn from people whose lives are affected by Autism.
