Despite all odds!!

By Mohamed Najdat Omar

In spite of the drastic situation in Syria, the program organized a sport event to celebrate EKS legacy, proving once more its unconditional commitment to the cause. A group of athletes met at “Techreen” indoor swimming pool to enjoy a sporting day. A brief on Mrs. Shriver achievements is said to the audience and a gift souvenir is offered to athletes happy as always to meet and compete under the banner of Special Olympics.
