Almoosa Specialist Hospital Signs A Two Million SR Contract with Turquoise Mountain To Support Local Crafts.

To support local craftsmanship and encourage heritage works and cultural arts from all over the Kingdom, ASH signed a two million SR contract with Turquoise Mountain.

“Art is therapy; it is essential in promoting wellness and improving the treatment journey; this initiative aims at producing a set of artworks made by local craftsmen to be displayed in the Almoosa Rehabilitation and long-term care center. Most of the contract value would go to the craftsmen directly, to ensure the sustainability and development of the craft and to provide the craftsmen with a steady source of income and a decent life,” says Sarah Almoosa, Marketing, and CSR director
