(MENAFN - Arab News) The Ministry of Social Affairs has booked space for its pavilion for people with special needs at the upcoming 28th Janadriyah National Heritage and Culture Festival, which kicks off in a few weeks.

The National Guard is organizing the festival under the aegis of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah.

"The pavilion will showcase the remarkable contributions of persons with disabilities and also display their skill in designing and planning projects," Ali Al-Khalaf, general supervisor of the ministry's planning team at the festival said in a statement on Friday.

The ministry's pavilion will also focus on topics such as social insurance, social care and sustained social growth among the 21 programs presented by 100 organizations operating under it in different parts of the Kingdom.

"The ministry's pavilion will be different from previous years. Special care has been taken to update and make creative changes with the aim of highlighting the ministry's activities in different fields," he said.

Considerable space has also been earmarked for the Social Insurance Department to display its programs. Nine provincial directorates of the ministry will display the special care and development programs on offer.
Handicraft products of different regions in the Kingdom will be shown at its pavilion, which will also include traditional clothes, sewing, metal works, jewelry, culinary arts and carpentry.

General Supervisor of the pavilion for the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Endowments, Call and Guidance, Salman Al-Omri, said: "The ministry will narrate the history of the struggle of the Ummah over the past century for development in areas such as culture and intellectual activities."

He added that thinkers, scientists, researchers, writers and men of letters from all parts of the Islamic and Arab world participated in past editions, making it an international event.

The pavilion will showcase photos and replicas of mosques and Islamic centers inside the Kingdom and abroad in addition to endowment projects. It will also display a number of ancient manuscripts. The pavilion will also display copies of various sizes and translations in different languages of the Holy Qur'an printed at the King Fahd Complex for Printing the Holy Qur'an. The various phases of the development of the complex will also be presented at the pavilion.

The ministry will also display and distribute a number of its own publications on Islam. The displayed publications will also include booklets and audio cassettes to enlighten people about the dangers of terrorism, extremism and deviant ideologies, and how to successfully counter such negative tendencies.

It was reported earlier that the People's Republic of China would be the Guest of Honor at Janadriyah.
