Ocean Village donates hand sanitisers to help two schools in Tangier

Coinciding with “International Week of the Deaf”, the Straits of Gibraltar Association, on behalf of Ocean Village has handed over a supply of hand sanitiser to the Centre Sinwane School for the deaf in Tangier.

The Director for the Centre, Anass el Mamouni said that he was overwhelmed by the generosity of Gibraltar and wished to thank Ocean Village for the much-needed supply of hand sanitisers.

Additionally, the association, in conjunction with the Gibraltar Morocco Business Association, presented hand sanitisers to the Association Assadaqa, which manages the school of the same name for children with Down Syndrome, also on behalf of Ocean Village.

“… as a school mostly funded by private donations, we are finding it difficult to keep the school open given the current Covid-19 pandemic and health regulations imposed on all educational establishments, so this donation could not have come at a better time,” said the school president, Aisha Serroukh.

Emilia Hazell-Smith, head of marketing at Ocean Village said: “We are delighted to donate these hand sanitisers to our friends across the Straits, with the assistance of the Gibraltar Morocco Business Association, and we feel that now, more than ever, we should unite in our efforts.”

The donation by Ocean Village comes after over 100 transparent masks were donated to this same deaf school by the Government of Gibraltar Civil Contingencies department and other private donors.
