Coinciding with “International Week of the Deaf”, The Straits of Gibraltar Association, on behalf of  Ocean Village has handed over a supply of hand sanitiser to the Centre Sinwane School for the deaf in 

Tangier. This comes after over 100 transparent masks were donated to this same school by the  Government of Gibraltar Civil Contingencies department and other private donors.  

The Director for the Centre, Mr. Anass el Mamouni said that he was overwhelmed by the generosity  of Gibraltar and wished to thank Ocean Village for the much-needed supply of hand sanitisers.  

Additionally, The Straits of Gibraltar Association, in conjunction with the Gibraltar Morocco  Business Association, presented hand sanitisers to the Association Assadaqa, which manages the  school of the same name for children with Down syndrome, also on behalf of Ocean Village. 

The President, Aisha Serroukh, expressed gratitude to Ocean Village for the donation and commented  that “… as a school mostly funded by private donations, we are finding it difficult to keep the school  open given the current Covid-19 pandemic and health regulations imposed on all educational  establishments, so this donation could not have come at a better time.”  

Emilia Hazell-Smith, Head of Marketing at Ocean Village said: “We are delighted to donate these  hand sanitisers to our friends across the Straits, with the assistance of the Gibraltar Morocco Business  Association, and we feel that now, more than ever, we should unite in our efforts.”
