Believing is achieving
Committed towards ending discrimination against people of determination with intellectual disabilities, in March 2019, the United Arab Emirates hosted the Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi. For the first time, the largest humanitarian multisport event was held in the Middle East. 7,500 athletes from more than 190 countries participated in 24 summer sports across 11 venues throughout the UAE’s capital. When the seven days of sporting success came to an end, the Special Olympics UAE (SO UAE) organizers chose Punch to support them in designing and documenting stories of bravery and human spirit that prevailed throughout the event.
