Fundraiser to help special needs children.

A CHARITY event is being staged tomorrow, to raise money for the Alia Centre for Early Intervention.

The mission of the centre is to promote lifelong access and opportunity for all individuals with behavioural and communication difficulties and their families.

It offers care and treatment for children who suffer from disorders such as autism spectrum disorders, auditory processing disorders, central auditory processing disorders, dyslexia, depression, hyperlexia, hyposensitive hearing and other syndromes.

The Leo Club in association with the Middle East Partnership Initiative (Mepi) Alumni Network, is organising the latest fundraiser to support the centre.

It is being held from 8pm to 12pm and will feature a film about the centre, a live band and a salsa dance show, plus a performance by DJ Imran Alaradi.

Tickets are available at the door for BD8, including dinner, or contact 39797818.

Organisers say the event also aimed at spreading awareness about the challenges faced by the centre, to encourage people to contribute.

Mepi Alumni Network steering committee member Hamdi Al Ghabani said children at the centre suffered from many types of disorders and they really needed professional care.

"Ordinary people can't take care of these children in their daily lives, because it needs professionalism and patience and the centre has specific methods of teaching and providing the needed care," he said.
