Despite the long distance, a delegation of students of the International French School in Hurghada, Red Sea governorate, came to visit Hospital 57357’s children to support their treatment journey. The delegation was headed by Dr. Boshra Alsharkawi , Chairman of the school and the student Rose Stevens, head of the school’s charity association “straight to the heart”. The delegation was welcomed by the representative of the schools outreach department who joined them on a tour of the facility during which they visited the day care and offered delightful gifts to the children.
The delegation also visited the recreation center where they played music for the children and spent time with them.
“ I used to hear about the Hospital, but didn’t expect it to be that big or as good as it is”, said Dr. Alsharkawi . The Hospital exceeded my expectations with respect to the quality of care it provides. Lots of people would like to come to help and to be with the children to contribute to lifting up their morale, she added.
“I used to hear about the Hospital since I was young, and I wanted to come to visit, so it was my first initiative when I headed the school’s association to arrange for this visit,” said the student Rose Stevens, head of the school’s charity association. It was nice to see all of these children, spend time with them and offer them gifts, we would like to come again to visit, she added.
At the end of the visit, the students offered a generous donation for the cost of an infusion pump, as ongoing sadaka in the school’s name and the “directly to the heart” association.
It is noteworthy that the association was set up in the school 10 years ago by two students Nour Mohamed and Farida Hob Eldeen. It aims to support charity projects where the association adopts an annual charity project such as offering an electric wheelchair for disabled, establishing a water well in Marsa Alam, establishing a bakery in a remote area or helping needy families to establish small projects. This year the association decided to support 57357’s children.
