Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) is playing destination host to a group of young students from the Jeddah Hope Centre for Rehabilitation.
The youngsters – all over 12 years old – and accompanied by medical and teaching staff, are in the emirate on a five-day trip to discover Abu Dhabi.
During their stay the youngsters will tour and dine at the new Eastern Mangroves lifestyle destination, sample the Yas Island headline attractions of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the world’s largest indoor theme park and the award-winning Yas Waterworld and will take them to one of the Summer Season Abu Dhabi shows, the Cinderella show by The Royal Moscow Ballet, which runs at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) until June 16.
The Saudi contingent will also head out to Abu Dhabi’s heritage heartland of Al Ain – just a 90 minute drive from the UAE capital – to get more in touch with Emirati history. Before leaving for home, the group will also embark on an Abu Dhabi city tour and a guided visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
“It is our great pleasure to host these youngsters from this excellent Jeddah facility which, for the past 12 years, has worked to support and rehabilitate youngsters with mental challenges so that they can be part of a productive society,” said Ati Al Dhaheri, Promotions Unit Head GCC,TCA Abu Dhabi. “We hope that during their trip they really enjoy themselves while learning something of our highly diverse emirate.”
