Malé, Maldives – Vice President Faisal Naseem shared plans to develop child development services in the South and North of the Maldives on Tuesday.

Speaking at the ceremony to inaugurate the new Child Development Centre in Hulhumalé Hospital, the Vice President highlighted the challenges faced earlier in seeking child development services and treatment, noting that the new facility would address the concerns of many parents.

A Child Development Centre was opened in Addu City last year at Maradhoofeydhoo.

The new centre opened in Hulhumalé today offers a variety of programmes for children under the age of 18 focused on their cognitive, social, emotional, speech and language development. It commenced some programmes before the official inauguration for 67 children, providing a stimulating and educational environment to support the natural development of children.
