DOHA: Artworks by special needs children under the Al Koora Art Project will be displayed and auctioned at the upcoming fourth Reach Out to Asia (Rota) Gala Dinner. This was revealed during yesterday’s announcement of the charity dinner’s Bronze Sponsor which is Qatar Vinyl Company (QVC), the leading provider of vinyl and caustic products. Al Koora Art Project was developed by Rota’s Volunteer Program, an initiative focused on community service and fostering a spirit of volunteerism in Qatar. The Al Koora Art Project engaged children with special needs from seven different institutions, namely the Dhreima Orphanage, Al Noor Institute for the Blind, Best Buddies Qatar, the Qatari Centre of Social Cultural for the Deaf, Hope Qatar, the Qatar Society for Rehabilitation of Special Needs, and the Qatar Paralympic Rehabilitation of Special Needs, to participate in a series of art workshops held at the Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar (VCU-Q).
