    A vocational centre for disabled persons established by the Ummah Welfare Trust (UWT), a United Kingdom based registered charity organisation, has launched its operations in Rawalpindi and is receiving a large number of skilled and unskilled disabled persons, says a press release issued here Saturday.

    The centre will impart training for packaging, stitching and other skills to disabled persons to help them get some kind of employment. The persons getting registered with the institute include deaf, dumb, physically paralysed and people with other types of disabilities. UWT will provide pick and drop facility to these persons.

    The entrants include a large number of day scholars while 20 to 25 people are being provided boarding facilities. All required arrangements have been completed in this regard.

    The provision of beds, bed sheets, wheelchairs and all other facilities has been ensured and the trust is providing lodging as well as mess facilities. More than 2,000 persons have got themselves registered with the centre.

    Expressing his joy and satisfaction on completion of vocational centre for disabled persons, Maulana Muhammad Idrees, the chairman of the trust, in his message from UK said that this was the second most important duty of the Ummah after widows and orphans to help disabled persons. “I am confident that no stone will be left unturned to serve the disabled persons,” he added. He directed the Pakistani office-bearers of the trust to serve these people wholeheartedly.
