SHARJAH, 7th May, 2017 (WAM)-Sharjah Press Club (SPC) of the Sharjah Government Media Bureau (SGMB) has decided to gift 500 copies of the popular book, Breaking the Barrier, to students of Al Amal School for the Deaf run by the Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services. The SPC initiative is part of its efforts to support the Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services (SCHS) and its target groups, in order to spread awareness about its various humanitarian activities and noble services in and outside the country.
The book, Breaking the Barrier, features an inspiring and heroic story celebrating the strength of human resolve and hope in the face of great adversity and odds. The book is based on the amazing story of a student named Farahana. It shows that we can all triumph by using the latent power and fighting spirit that we all possess.
The gift from SPC is part of its community and humanitarian action plan that the Club proposes to implement this year, in line with the Year of Giving initiative launched by the UAE under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE President.
The SPC has purchased 500 copies of the book, Breaking the Barrier, produced by the SCHS under the auspices of the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Sharjah Sports Council, to present them to students of Al Amal School for the Deaf.
A student of the School of the Deaf, Farahana defied all odds to succeed in life, graduating from the Department of Graphic Design at the University of Sharjah. She is now working as a Graphic Designer at the SCHS and is a source of inspiration to everyone in general and children with disabilities like her in particular.
 The book shines the light on the heroic struggle of Farahana, how her parents first discovered her loss of hearing, the stages of treatment, and the troubles she encountered in her life, especially as a student, and how she succeeded with determination and resolve. Taking advantage of the excellent services offered by Al Amal School for the Deaf, Farahana continued her education with distinction becoming the first graduate with hearing disabilities from the University of Sharjah and making the book a catalyst of change for many students like her.
Speaking on the occasion, Huda Al Dah, Manager of Sharjah Press Club, said that the Club has developed a year-long plan that involves a number of humanitarian and community initiatives in the spirit of the Year of Giving announced by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. She added that the UAE's approach to philanthropy since its founding by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan has made it an example followed in various parts of the world. 
Al Dah stressed that the initiatives to be launched in collaboration with the Club members and in coordination with the concerned bodies are aimed at promoting the culture of humanitarian and voluntary work and expanding the prospects of charity work, which is not limited to material generosity, but also includes donating time, effort and knowledge
