Sanjay Uppal, Chief Financial Officer, Standard Chartered Bank, who presented the high-tech gift, said: "Dubai Centre for Special Needs is an excellent example of an organisation in the UAE that is improving the quality of life of persons with disabilities of all ages and their families. A prime focus of our donations are projects and organisations that assist children, particularly in the areas of health and education."

"It has been Standard Chartered's privilege and pride to work with the Dubai Centre for Special Needs in meeting their objectives. Our donation of 13 personal computers is another step in our continued association with the Centre," he said.

The CFO and Aida Hamza, Head of Corporate Affairs, UAE, Standard Chartered Bank, were welcomed by Mahshid Salehi, Director of Dubai Centre for Special Needs, and a stirring rendition of the UAE national anthem, followed by a special welcome song from 100 students of all ages.

Mahshid Salehi said: "Thank you for taking this step in donating these computers and making a difference in the children's lives. This wonderful and generous donation will be put to the best use in helping to develop the student's knowledge and enhance their learning capabilities." "Children love learning on computers and automatically develop a genuine interest in learning. Using these machines will be a whole new experience, and will open the door to an entirely different world," said the centre director.
