(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency)

Amman, Feb 4 (Petra) -- Some 487 societies and charitable institutions that care for orphans, the elderly and people with disabilities received annual royal support on Saturday during a ceremony to mark the occasion of His Majesty King Abdullah's birthday.
The aid is part of a 2011 royal initiative aimed to enable these centers to continue providing quality services to target groups and enhance their societal and developmental role across the Kingdom's governorates. Societies benefiting from the aid are selected according to Ministry of Social Development criteria.
Royal Court Chief, head of the follow-up committee for the implementation of His Majesty's initiatives, Yousef Issawi, said during the Royal Court ceremony to hand out the aid, that supporting charities is a key part of Royal Initiatives, as these are a strategic partner in social and developmental work and carry out developmental and service programs that back up government efforts to advance community development and voluntary work.
Pursuing this initiative underlines efforts to translate the royal visions into reality and embodies the King's directives to secure a decent life for target groups and provide them with a healthy and safe environment and quality services, said Issawi.
For her part, Minister of Social Development Wafaa Bani Mustafa said improving the quality of life of citizens and raising the level of services are a key government priority, which is based on the royal vision to accelerate development and ensure a fair distribution of its dividends across all regions of the Kingdom.
The Social Development Ministry, she explained, selects beneficiary societies according to transparent and fair criteria to help groups that are at the center of His Majesty's attention, including those with disabilities, orphans and the elderly.
Heads and representatives of beneficiary institutions expressed their appreciation to the King for 'this generous' royal initiative, which reflects his keen interest and concern to empower 'this segment' and enable charities to carry out their societal and developmental role.
