SHARJAH: Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, wife of His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah, President of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs and Chairwoman of Sharjah Ladies Club (SLC), recently visited Al Hamriya branch of SLC.

The visit is part of Sheikha Jawaher’s desire to support women’s institutions operating in the different regions of the Emirate of Sharjah.

During her visit, Sheikha Jawaher Al Qasimi toured the club’s facilities, and inspected the fitness centre, Jouri Beauty Salon and Creative Hobby Centre, all of which have received recent upgrades.

She also met with Amna Al Shanasi, Manager of SLC branches, as well as a number of managers from Al Hamriya’s Club departments.

The representatives discussed with her the advantages added by the upgrade, which was achieved in the framework of the club’s commitment to providing integrated entertainment experiences for women.

Sheikha Jawaher was briefed on the array of programmes and services provided by each SLC branch, of which there are 10 in Sharjah, as well as their future plans to achieve further expansion.

Halima Al Oweis, Manager of SLC Al Hamriya branch, welcomed Sheikha Jawaher and praised her great support to women and children in the emirate, and her numerous initiatives aimed at empowering women and inspiring them to enhance their capabilities in all fields.

“In line with the directives of Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher, we are on a continuous mission to enhance the world-class qualities in our facilities.

“With this in mind, we have recently implemented a series of modernisation projects at the Sharjah Ladies Club – Al Hamriya branch, which includes equipment upgrades, a reimagining of space and the new provision of services.

“We have re-organised staffing arrangements so that SLC team members can deliver services in a safe and distinctive place for women to practice a variety of sports, social and cultural activities,” said Al Shanasi.

Al Hamriya SLC’s development programme has resulted in its training halls being equipped with the latest technology to facilitate courses in information technology, calligraphy, plastic arts, photography and other subjects.

Its fitness centre now offers an improved spatial environment, more advanced equipment, a new aerobic studio and a complement of trained fitness specialists to offer advice and personal training.
