Al Sagheer, one of the premium hair and beauty salons, encompassing a chain of more than 26 salons across Egypt, Dubai & Qatar; proudly supported the community this Ramadan with a hair & beauty styling event for the children from Dubai Autism Center and Awqaf & Minors Affairs Foundation (AMAF).
As the name “Happiness for all” indicates, the initiative was aimed at spreading happiness and creating moments of joy for the children in two different organizations- Dubai Autism Centre and AMAF. As a part of the volunteering initiative, Al Sagheer’s team of experts visited these organizations to provide kids with stylish makeovers, to make them feel good about themselves and help them prepare for the festival of Eid Al Fitr.
Mohamed Al Sagheer, the founder and CEO of Al Sagheer Group said: “Ramadan is the month of kindness which brings us the opportunity to engage with the community and add happiness to people’s lives. This year we reached out to these kids, to help them prepare for the joyous festival of Eid Al Fitr; we are delighted that our smallest act of kindness could bring joy to the children”
“We would like to express our gratitude to Al Sagheer for their enormous effort and thank their staff for taking time from their busy schedules. Their visit left a lasting impression on the children, they were so excited to see themselves in the mirror after getting the new looks – it was a strong expression of their commitment towards humanitarian initiatives”- said Sara Baker, Autism Program Head at Dubai Autism Center.
“We thank Al Sagheer for this idea and approaching us for this event at AMAF; it reflects their commitment towards contributing to the Society. It was a gratifying occasion, the children were so
cheerful and full of enthusiasm; we are sure they are going to cherish this moment of joy always” – said. Zainab Jumaa Al Tamimi, Deputy Director of Minors Affairs at AMAF
Each child was given a special session with a hairstyle that suits them the best. The event also included a host of activities aimed at entertaining the children and enhancing their excitement. The kids were presented with gifts and most importantly, an unforgettable experience for their lifetime. Al Sagheer group is very active with initiatives that bring changes in the community. The hair and beauty stylist encourages a volunteering culture among the staff and promotes the principle of 'giving back to the community’.
