Dar al Atta’a hands over 80th house
Dar al Atta’a has handed over ten houses in 2018, thus completing the handover of 80 houses to deserving cases since the founding of the charity.
Dar al Atta’a worked during the year on a number of programmes such as the Families Care, Students Care, Let us Read, Enable, Disaster Relief, Islamic Values, and special programmes like Voluntary Sector Governance, and the Rohingya Campaign.
Building houses comes under the Families Care programme which includes building, maintenance and furnishing of houses, payment of water and electricity bills and other things which concern the family. In addition to building ten houses in 2018, the organisation also did maintenance work of 14 houses in the year. So far, it has supported maintenance work of 500 houses.
Dar al Atta’a also offered school meals to more than 2,000 students and provided more than 3,000 school bags and school uniforms under the Students Care programme. Under the Disaster Relief programme, the charity conducted a campaign to assist Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. The campaign included visits to refugees there in cooperation with the Oman Charitable Organization.
Under the slogan ‘Together for Oman’, Dar al Atta’a helped in the maintenance work of 45 houses in Dhofar governorate in the aftermath of Cyclone Mekunu.
Dr Shamsa al Harthea, general manager, said, “With a bright start for 2019, Dar al Atta’a is very grateful to everyone who contributed and donated to the success of the association’s work in one way or another. We are working to help everyone knocking on the doors of the association. We also have new plans for this year, through which we seek to help the largest number of deserving families.”
