As part of its Get Wonky culture to make an impact to the communities it serves, Eltizam Asset Management Group has partnered with the Emirates Down Syndrome Association (EDSA) in Dubai for a corporate social responsibility (CSR) program aimed at enhancing the environment for learning and development of children of determination with Down Syndrome, while also helping EDSA reduce its carbon footprint.
The initiative seeks to provide a range of facilities management services to EDSA through its subsidiary, Tafawuq Facilities Management, which include providing water-efficient washbasin faucets equipped with sensor, servicing of all air-conditioning units, cleaning of external glass, play areas, and car parking shades. These maintenance services will further help EDSA reduce its carbon footprint based on Tafawuq’s energy-saving tools and equipment.
Chris Roberts, CEO, Eltizam Asset Management Group, said, “Eltizam continues to support organizations that help promote inclusion through our CSR programs which is one of the tenets of our Get Wonky culture. We believe that supporting the Emirates Down Syndrome Association in their activities will enhance the growth and development of people with Down Syndrome and contribute to the organization’s goals of improving social equity in the UAE and our FM services help advance EDSA’s mission and goals.”
Doctor Manal Jaroor, Chairwoman, EDSA, commented, “The Emirates Down Syndrome Association always welcomes individuals and organizations keen to support the association’s cause to serve people and children with Down Syndrome and give them a fair opportunity to advance in life. We are thankful to Eltizam’s assistance in enhancing our facilities through their high- quality services, which enable everyone who come to our center to safely engage in all activities.”
