The Sharjah Charity International (SCI) has brought joy to some 100 orphans and children in need in a recent event at the Islamic Forum Stadium.

For five hours during the 'Their Joy, Our Joy' event, the SCI has given the kids a huge, loving family to enjoy the day with. The children, aged two to 12, had their faces painted, took part in contests, saw some of their favourite cartoon characters, and enjoyed their share of snacks, among other activities.

Abdullah Sultan bin Khadem, board member and executive director of the SCI, said: "Our organisation is keen on organising events that aim to bring these children the joy that they need. We were also very happy as we did the activities with them, giving them a sense of family.  "Events like 'Their Joy, Our Joy' stem from the vision of His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah."

Bin Khadem said orphans have always figured in the SCI's work, from education projects to all other kinds of support that can help them live better lives.  He also said the charity's projects wouldn't have been possible without the generosity of philanthropists, supporters and all their partners.
