The Shafallah Center for Children for Special Needs, affiliated with Qatar Foundation for Social Work, announced the launch of the fourth edition of its summer program on 1 July 1 under the slogan "Our Summer is Safe at Home", through its online platform for all persons with disabilities in Qatar.

The summer program will last for a month and will take place four days a week. The program aims to raise the level of societal awareness of the rights of persons with disabilities and their right to participate in summer activities by implementing targeted activities that they can acquire skills from. They will be split into different age and diagnostic groups for their benefit and to develop their capabilities within an open environment that is less restrictive and more vital.

Executive Director of the Shafallah Center Laalei Abu Alfain explained that the online platform for the program will serve for the first time all persons with disabilities in Qatar without exception. A multidisciplinary team of the centers staff will supervise and follow up on the implementation of the program by communicating with people with disabilities and their parents through the Microsoft Teams program, she added.

She stated that the summer program also seeks to involve bodies and institutions in the country with different responsibilities in contributing to the integration of persons with disabilities through the various activities and events organized by the center, indicating that the center seeks to meet those educational and rehabilitating needs through this year's summer program.

The Executive Director pointed out that the center aspires to provide a diversified and carefully prepared program that includes a set of activities aimed at rehabilitation and treatment services, as well as the adaptation of these services and continuing to provide them to all persons with disabilities and their guardians, by communicating without exception to all persons with disabilities in the country, in light of the health conditions of the emerging coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
