” The Shafallah Center provides services and care to both Qatari and expatriates and currently has around 720 students who receive daily support free of charge. Through the commitment of a dedicated team of professionals, and working in close collaboration with parents and families, the center delivers a continuation of care for its students that goes far beyond their graduation from Shafallah.
Its mission exceeds providing services to families of children and adults with special needs.
