For 20 years of humanitarian work and social volunteering in the service of people with a disability, Special Olympics Bahrain prepared a special surprise on the sidelines of a ceremony to celebrate Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day, which was held last Saturday evening 22 September, honoring figures and pioneers in humanitarian work, volunteers for society. Two national directors, Mr. Mohammed Hassan Al-Matouq and Sports Director Ms. and Fikh Khalil Jamal were honored. Daij bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, Chairman of Special Olympics Bahrain and Sam Personality of the Year 2012, thanked them for their roles in humanitarian leadership with people with intellectual disabilities for more than 20 years. We witnessed a ceremony honoring the atmosphere of friendliness and love and fulfillment for them, especially since this honor coincided with Loyalty to the first lady leading the field, the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
