Jotun Paints has completed its Corp­orate Social Responsibility (CSR) campaign that reached out to visually-impaired children at the Bahrain Friendship Society for the Blind. The initiative involved the repainting of a blind children’s nursery school in the town of Isa, using Fenomastic quality paint. The move, which is part of Jotun’s CSR initiatives in the Middle East, was organised in partnership with the American Mission Hospital, an organization that aims to serve Bahrain’s local community. Established in 1981, the Bahrain Friendship Society for the Blind, extends training and developmental needs to the country’s visually impaired sector. One of the leading projects of the group is the blind children’s nursery school, which aims to ensure the development of blind children who are in the kindergarten level. Since the interiors of the nursery school had never been repainted since its construction, Jotun offered to provide one of its Fenomastic paints and the necessary materials towards this cause. The repainting of the academic facility was coordinated with the American Mission Hospital, which resulted in a cleaner and safer environment for the children attending the nursery.
