Fun evening for special children

BAHRAIN:A SPECIAL evening of music and dance is being organised by the Indian Ladies Association (ILA) next month.

The event on January 18 at the Gulf Air Club, Salmabad, follows the ILA's recent highly successful programmes: the Workers Day, Suq Al Hind and the Indo Bahraini Craft Bazaar.

"This event will be part of the ILA's Golden Jubilee celebrations and will continue to follow the theme Building Bridges of Friendship," said ILA Sneha centre co-ordinator Meera Kamath.

"The evening of music and dance is inviting the participation of all centres that are run for children with special needs."

The ILA runs Sneha, a centre for children with special needs, at its premises in Al Baraka Building, Manama.

"'It is our experience with Sneha and our association with similar institutions in Bahrain that has made us aware of a need to bring these children into mainstream society by giving them a chance to display their talents," said Mrs Kamath.

"The programme, which is aptly named Expressions, will be held on Thursday, January 18 at the Gulf Air Club Auditorium, Salmabad."

The event will start at 7pm and is open to all.

At least eight centres are expected to participate in the event, with children presenting dances and songs in Arabic and English.

"We hope to have the presence of ministers, ambassadors and other dignitaries from the diplomatic level along with members of various communities," said ILA president Vani Krishnan.

"We have organised similar shows in the past from 1989 with the full participation of various centres in Bahrain."
