Sharjah 24: The Sharjah Social Services Department (SSSD), Khorfakkan Branch, participated in the activities of Sharjah Heritage Days, which are organised by the Sharjah Institute for Heritage, in its 21st edition under the theme “Connect”, running from February 22 to March 3.
Ahmed Nasser, Director of the Khorfakkan Branch, explained that the department has been very keen to participate in the activities of the Sharjah Heritage Days since its first launch, as it is an essential partner in all the activities hosted by the city of Khorfakkan, held in the heritage village near Khorfakkan Beach, which hosts the activities of the Sharjah Heritage Days on February 28-29. The department’s participation showcases the pioneering role it plays towards society and its members in the Emirate of Sharjah and the various services.

He added: Hence, we are keen on the participation of several sections of the department to convey the diversity of its services to the public, and the focus of such events is on our elderly fathers and mothers, to whom the department gives a lot of care and attention, in addition to allowing them to showcase their experiences in life through narrating the stories of their past.

The director of the Khorfakkan branch said that the Sharjah Voluntary Work Centre in the department is participating in the event by assuming the responsibilities of organising the Sharjah Heritage Days activities, including the entry and exit of visitors, introducing the centre to the public. Members of the Intaj Centre also participate in the event with a variety of artistic, artisanship and heritage products, represented by its five packages: the “Teeb” package for incense and perfumes, “Atayeb” package for food, Al Ibraa package for handicrafts, “ Anaqat Al Azyaa” package for fashion and accessories, and “Mahra” package for traditional crafts. This participation is an opportunity to showcase and highlight the skills of productive families, as their diverse projects preserve cultural heritage and traditional handicrafts within a modern framework.

The Physical Therapy Centre, affiliated with the Social Services Department also introduces the services it provides to all segments of society, which include many modern devices.
