FedEx Cares Program Launched in Saudi Arabia Volunteers From SAB Express Engage With the Jeddah Special Needs Club Basketball Players
SAB Express, the global service provider of FedEx Express in Saudi Arabia, joined hands with Swish Community Service to promote the social inclusion of young adults with special needs in the Saudi society.
As part of the FedEx Cares global initiative, SAB Express team members are contributing their hard work, skills and hearts to improve communities in need and volunteering their time and attention.
SAB Express team members supported the Jeddah Special Needs Club basketball players and engaged them in a friendly game between the two teams.
In cooperation with Swish Community Service, forty SAB Express team members dedicated half a day to the Jeddah Special Needs Club members. The event included an introduction session about wheelchair basketball, presented by the Jeddah Club players. The day also included training for SAB and Swish team members on the basics of how to play basketball in a wheelchair. These fun activities were aimed at social inclusion and the empowerment of special needs sports players, while nurturing their social skills and confidence.
