(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Ba9ma charity group in collaboration with Shell Oman Marketing Company have announced the launch of Together We Stand', an awareness campaign aimed towards engaging the community with those with special needs within three streams of disabilities; physical, hearing and visual.

The campaign launched at Muscat Grand Mall and will be open for public.The unique idea behind the campaign is to draw more awareness and have an up-close and personal engagement between all members of the society to learn and stand with those who have special needs. Aala M J al Lawatia, cofounder of Ba9ma, said, ''There are so many people in our society who support good causes, however most of these initiatives are constrained to providing by financial aid through charity groups.

This creates a gap between two segments in the society, and we are here to bridge this gap and show our support as one.'' She added, ''There is a misconception that those with special needs are constantly in need of care; unable to give back and mostly looked upon with sympathy.

What they actually need is not sympathy but rather for someone to understand them better and remove any obstacles that stand in their way to support in contributing to the development our community equally. Together we stand is an attempt to bring us all together and help understand these obstacles.'
