Jeddah SAB Express, the global service provider of FedEx Express in Saudi Arabia, joined hands with Swish Community Service to promote the social inclusion of young adults with special needs in the Saudi society.

As part of the FedEx Cares global initiative, SAB Express team members are contributing their hard work, skills and hearts to improve communities in need and volunteering their time and attention.

In cooperation with Swish Community Service, forty SAB Express team members dedicated half a day to the Jeddah Special Needs Club members. The event included an introduction session about wheelchair basketball, presented by the Jeddah Club players.
