RCN provides HOPE for the children at KNH’s cancer ward

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference  –   Winston Churchill

RI theme for the month of December is Disease Prevention and Treatment.

Christmas celebrates the birth of a very tiny baby that gave/gives/and continues to give HOPE to the world.  It is this attitude and spirit of HOPE that this season of gift giving exemplifies which the Rotary Club of Nairobi wanted to share with the children in the Cancer Ward at Kenyatta National Hospital on December 22, 2017.

However, due to the fact that the hospital staff believes that integrating the children within the ward is healthier and healing psychologically that the RCN took this small attitude HOPE to the wards as we visited the children, the staff, the families and visitors who were there. Gifts were distributed, Santa stories were told, Santa Rotarian Darren and his puppetry elves laughed and danced with the children.

The entire celebration was supported in person by able Rotarian Elves Mari, Mohamedali (and his daughters), Ritesh, Anjlee (and her children and family members), Shakeel, Ann, Sally, Addah, David, Nelson, Justus, Uta amongst other Rotarians/friends and supported financially by a number of Rotarian Elves who were not able to attend but were with us in providing this spirit of HOPE for the children.
