Today, Tuesday 6-2-2024, the artist Jory Bakr visited Hospital 57357, to bring support to the sick children during their cancer treatment journey. She stressed that the Hospital’s patients deserve moral and material support, and that she is proud because this healthcare institution is part of Egypt. She wished if she had millions of pounds to donate to the Hospital that is committed to the provision of quality comprehensive care for free to children with cancer.
Dr. Alaa Farid, pharmacist in the daycare, invited Bakr to visit the Hospital and spend time with the children, to entertain and delight them. The artist welcomed the invitation and responded immediately.
Bakr visited the daycare and the clinical pharmacy where she was introduced to the automated robotic process of preparing and dispensing medication. She also visited the art therapy recreation center, and was impressed by the variety of activities children practice there such as drawing and playing music, which contribute to lifting up their spirits.
She ended the tour by visiting the Cyberknife unit which houses the latest radiotherapy equipment.
