UAE - The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) has organised a charity market for people of determination to help promote their products and also integrate them into the society.

The market that sells handicrafts, artwork and agricultural products produced by people with special needs, was set up on the premises of the judicial department office as part of the Year of Zayed initiative.

The ADJD officials said the charity market for the products of people with special needs is also part of a series of initiatives being organised by the judicial department in line with their social responsibility in 2018.

"The charity market aims to promote the integration of people of determination into the community, encourage and support their products, as well as showing their work to the people," said Yousef Saeed Al Abri, undersecretary at the ADJD. He noted that the department's social responsibility initiatives include various humanitarian, developmental and cultural projects.

Al Abri said that the department was keen on supporting the community through cooperation with its partners in various fields including health, humanitarian, environment and culture and that it was encouraging and motivating its employees to always volunteer for community work.

Amina Al Mazrouei, head of community responsibility at the ADJD, said the charity market has been organised by the judicial department in coordination with the Zayed Agricultural Centre for Development and Rehabilitation and the Zayed Higher Institute for Humanitarian Care and Special Needs.

"Many employees of the judicial department and visitors have visited the charity market and bought products from the people of determination," said Al Mazrouei.

"I am happy to announce that they have registered 100 per cent in total sale of their products. The people have really supported them."

She noted that such initiatives promote people of determination to work hard which raises the level of their professional competence and which enables them to produce high-quality products. "Such initiatives also make people with special needs feel they have value and are part of the society," said Al Mazrouei.
