The Emirati delegation toured the Hospital and visited the day care where the ambassador chatted with our little patients and offered them presents. When he visited the art therapy workshop he listened carefully to Ms. Amany the responsible of the art space, on how art therapy affects children’s psychological condition as they get a chance to express their fear and anger and how it acts like physiotherapy with children with brain tumors as they are trained them to move their hands.
