Chevrolet Middle East donates car seats to SAFE Center for Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome
Children with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome are now safer travelling to and from school thanks to the generous donation of busloads of car seats by Chevrolet Middle East. The donation was made to Dubai’s SAFE Center for Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome as part of Chevrolet’s ongoing mission to give back to the community and to raise awareness about the importance of wearing seatbelts.
“The SAFE Center for Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome are extremely grateful for the donation of the wonderful car seats for our buses. This not only gives peace of mind to our team, but to our students’ parents as well, knowing that their children are now safer on the roads of Dubai. We wish to say a big ‘thank you’ to Chevrolet for this very kind donation,” said Mahbouba Yousef, Director of the SAFE Center for Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.
“Driver and passenger safety is GM’s number one priority, so we jumped at the chance to support the Center to keep their pupils safe as they travel to and from school,” said Maurice Williams, President and Managing Director of GM Middle East. Chevrolet has long been the sponsor of the Buckle up in the Back initiative that educates children, parents and teachers about the importance of wearing safety belts and the correct use of child seats through in-school presentations.
“Unfortunately road accidents are so commonplace in the UAE it’s almost a part of life. We at Chevrolet love knowing that we’re helping to bring peace of mind to parents and the Center, and that we have a role in protecting what’s most precious to them when they’re on the roads,” said Williams.
