Dubai Municipality’s stall at the AccessAbilities Expo, the Middle East’s largest expo for People of Determination, which is being held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, received tremendous response from the visitors, especially those responsible for the associations of People of Determination, whether inside the country or from the GCC countries.


“The Municipality’s stall was unique in that its employees were the ones who managed them in full. It has a team of self-motivated People of Determination, who have been empowered, developed and trained to manage their own projects,” said Naseeb Obeid, representative of the People of Determination in Dubai Municipality and supervisor of the stall.


He said that the officials at the stall explained to the visitors, including FNC members, the services provided by the Municipality to the People of Determination.

“It is managed by the People of Determination themselves to gain confidence in themselves and their potentials as well as their integration and empowerment in society and their participation in the representation of Dubai Municipality,” she said.


“In addition, the Municipality seeks to spread awareness through our latest Braille publications. It includes health and safety publications for male and female saloon visitors. It includes awareness on diseases that can be transmitted through salons and beauty centers, as well as an explanation of some of the wrong behaviors practiced by women workers in the Ladies’ saloons and procedures to be followed to ensure the safety of the skin,” said Bin Hammad.


“The publications also include the ones explaining the safety of the entertainment and recreation areas, the types of risks that may be encountered in the area of the games and the methods of prevention, as well as the safety of children and the necessary guidance in emergencies, including the safety of beach goers and types of risks and how to prevent them and procedures for safety on the beaches and general advice for beach visitors,” she explained.


Bin Hammad said that the Municipality stall includes an interactive platform with a table showing the suitability of Dubai Municipality facilities to the People of Determination and at the Municipality centers, parks and the Children’s City.


“The stall has also been equipped with tables, where the words of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE are written in Braille, and urging all to encourage everyone to respect their great abilities encouraging them,” she said.


Bin Hammad pointed out that the stall also includes many smart apps that People of Determination can use to get the services they want from the Municipality such as the Kharetati app, the park and beach apps and they are trained and taught during their visit to the Municipality stall in the exhibition.
