"Our goal is to help blind people with disabilities. They asked to buy sewing machines, sewing equipment. In total, these are 21 machines. Despite the pandemic and the closure of borders, we managed to purchase everything and transfer everything to Jaiyk association," said K. Kassabekov, director of the Saliqaly Urpaq (Decent generation) Fund.
On January 20, in Uralsk, the Public Fund "Saliqaly Urpaq (Decent generation)" donated sewing equipment to the public association of people with visual impairments "Zhaiyk" for the development of their own business.
The presentation ceremony was attended by the deputy akim of the city of Uralsk Bakytjan Narymbetov, director of the Public fund "Saliqaly Urpak" KassymKassabekov, chairman of the public association "Jaiyk" Daniyar Kadyrbekov and others.
The public association "Jaiyk" includes about 30 young people under 35 years of age who have various visual impairments. Young people could not find a job for a long time and therefore turned to the "Saliqaly Urpak" fund with a request to purchase sewing equipment for them to start their own business. With the help of equipment, young people will be able to produce goods themselves, create jobs and take part in the development of the city economy.
Chairman of NGO "Jaiyk" Daniyar Kadyrbekov thanked the management of the fund.
