As a Health and Sciences Institution, Hospital 57357 is seeking not only the provision of quality care for children with cancer, but also to spread awareness of cancer causes, aiming to reduce the number of cancer cases. For this reason and besides its continuous awareness campaigns channeled through its “home without cancer” initiative, the Hospital intensifies its awareness activities during September of every year as September is the international children’s cancer awareness month.
At the end of the month and after a big variety of awareness activities during September, the hospital held a celebration attended by the hospital’s children, students of five schools and Samia Allouba’s gymnastic team. The special attendance of Allouba’s team aimed to encourage children to practice sports besides following cancer prevention living guidelines. Our children along with the school students shared in some of the gymnastic exercises. The celebration included story telling on how to beat cancer from the superman booklets that were produced by the hospital to encourage the children to read about the disease, and how to go through the treatment journey peacefully and successfully.
The57357 Learning and Development team, along with the awareness team organized the celebration as well as all the awareness activities of campaigns and educational seminars held throughout the month. During the celebration, graphic videos were displayed to provide useful information about cancer causes, healthy eating habits and the importance of practicing sports. The awareness team was available to answer all the questions asked by our children, their families and school students.
