Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services in Dubai Directory
The Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services (SCHS) is a local charity founded in 1979 as a branch of the Arab Family Organization in the Gulf region, aiming to advance the Arab family and develop the social services it needs as authorized by decree number 611981, issued on March 11, 1981, by the Government of Sharjah. His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al-Qassimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, issued a decree on 10th October 1995 under edict number 411995. This stated that the City is to be an independent charity for the care of the handicapped with the capacity to conduct all legal procedures necessary to fulfill its aims and objectives and to enjoy financial and administrative independence. The persistence of Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services in pursuing humanitarian work, especially in the fields of care, training, education rehabilitation and integration of the handicapped in the society, does not stem from a utopian ideal, but from a conviction that ties the potential future to a radiant past, embodied by the adherence of the people of the UAE to standards derived from a deep-rooted history and a glorious Islamic past. If we were to compare the past and the present we would find a wide contrast between the suppression, negligence and ignorance of the past, and the towering achievements we see and feel today. The word future is more brilliant today. The future is guaranteed enough to break the barriers of fear and dread of a unknown tomorrow. We now can look forward to a bright tomorrow that carries hope and goodness for all.
