AMMAN — The Social Development Ministry and the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (ISESCO) on Wednesday launched an initiative using communication and information to empower people with disabilities, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.  

The project is launched in cooperation with the Zakat House in Kuwait and the Distance Learning and Training Company.

During the ceremony, Social Development Minister Hala Lattouf said that His Majesty King Abdullah pays special attention to the social care sector for persons with disabilities which has witnessed remarkable development as a result of many Royal directives and visits.

Lattouf added that centres have been established to serve people with disabilities across the Kingdom within Royal makrumas (beneficiations), which amount to 12 centres, as well as financial support for centres and associations that provide services to people with disabilities.

She stressed that the launch of this project aims to develop programmes and services for people with disabilities to enhance their communication skills, as well as monitoring the shortcomings in training people with disabilities.
