It is notable that Sanad Village is being built on a total area of 32,000 square meters, with construction area of 19,000 square meters, and construction cost exceeding AED 200 million. It currently employs 320 highly trained and qualified professionals from nations around the world, who will be dedicated to caring for 395 People of Determination through daily and residential programs.
Dr Muhannad Fraihat, Founder and President of Sanad Village, said: “Dubai pioneers outstanding projects and encourages medical tourism. It is for this reason that we choose Dubai as the home to Sanad Village, which is going to be the largest rehabilitation centre for People of Determination in the world. AccessAbilities Expo is a valuable opportunity for us to showcase our vision and mission to help People of Determination overcome various challenges, and enable their integration into the wider community. We want to share our plans of attracting People of Determination from around the world, and provide education and rehabilitation that empowers them, so they can actively contribute to the development of their home countries.”
Sanad Village seeks to become an advanced model—a first of its kind—capable of providing support, training and rehabilitation services through evidence base, results driven, and scientifically proven methods. Sanad offers services of excellence in Applied Behavioral Analysis therapy, Speech Therapy, Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy, Vocational Training, and Life Skills Training. As an extension of services provided, a team of experts specialized in organizing workshops and educational classes, will train families and members of the community on how to care for and interrelate with People of Determination.
Dr Fraihat added: “The centre will provide full simulations of external environments, so that People of Determination can learn life skills within a sensory friendly setting. We have coordinated with several governmental and private organizations to create these real world settings within Sanad Village. We will create streets and add traffic lights and real means of transportation to guide People of Determination through every day circumstances. The Village will provide luxurious residential amenities and clinical support 24 hours a day, and is scheduled to be fully operational next month.”
Dr Fraihat concluded, “Sanad Village is self-sufficient, and will be providing several facilities such as a miniature shopping complex, supermarket, cinema, restaurants, barber shop and hair salon, a police station to increase the security of the community, airport services training and an aircraft model provided by the aviation authority and much more. These facilities will transform Sanad Village into an integrated world that allows People of Determination to practice, in a safe space, all forms of activities and daily life situations. We intend to make it easier for People of Determination and their families to deal with the community outside the Village.”
The AccessAbilities Expo aims to improve the lives of People of Determination and their families by bringing them together with retailers, manufacturers, investors, NGOs, as well as medical and educational institutes and government agencies from all around the region.
