Helping hand for the blind
The Awali Ladies Hospitality Group yesterday donated BD700 to the Saudi Bahraini Institute for the Blind.
The cheque was presented by group chairwoman Rasheeda Tadayon to institute director Abdul Wahid Al Khayat, at the institute premises in Isa Town.
Mr Al Khayat bought two Braille typewriters for the centre with the money.
The major part of the money was raised from the annual Awali Craft Fair and also from the monthly events organised by the group.
The next Awali Craft Fair will be held on November 17.
More details will be announced closer to the date.
