Petra said Sunday the course is in line with the company’s social strategy to support different segments of society.

In a statement, the company said that the course’s training sessions will enable 20 people from the service providers in the local community in the Red Sea port city to interact with visual and hearing impairments, read books, and learn secondary words in sign language.

Ayla’s Managing Director Sahl Al-Dudin lauded the “exceptional efforts” made by the association in integrating the visually and hearing impaired into society through courses that will boost their confidence and self-esteem. He also praised the efforts to train their service providers to increase their ability to deal with this group and provide them with services in the highest levels.

Ayla’s support for the association, he explained, is part of its social responsibility strategy, which aims at supporting various sectors and non-profit organizations by enabling them to perform their role and implement their objectives.

Sunaa Al-Erada president Siham Al-Shabatat voiced her appreciation of Ayla’s support for the association to continue providing services to people with disabilities by rehabilitating them psychologically, socially, and professionally, and integrating them into society through active participation in activities.

The association, she said, also provides medical assistance and presents special technological gadgets designed for its members, such as mobile apps and talking computers.

Mohammad Al-Tawara, director of the Directorate of Social Development in Aqaba, commended the efforts exerted by Ayla in supporting programs implemented by associations like Sunaa Al-Erada and its commitment to meeting the needs of the local community in Aqaba.
