Volunteers started the day by decorating the Hospital for Christmas and New Year where children joined them in putting the ornaments on the Christmas tree. Gifts were offered to children and to staff creating a joyful and festive environment.
It is noteworthy that the volunteers department was established since the beginning of the Hospital operation with the goal of encouraging the society to play an active role in supporting Hospital 57357 and providing moral support to sick children.
Through 14 different activities, volunteers maximize efforts to engage children in programs that would lift up their spirits and improve their psychological condition.
Our wishes for a very happy New Year for our children and volunteers.
