A Birthday Party at CCHE 57357
All sick children at CCHE 57357 and their mothers were invited to attend their fellow young patient Ahmed’s birthday party. Ahmed is 12 years old; this is the first birthday celebration to be organized at the hospital. A successful attempt by our team of social workers at creating a joyful, hospitable, friendly, “feels like home” kind of atmosphere inside the hospital. The social workers team took care of all the details: presents, balloons, refreshments, music by a D.J., and of course the birthday cake! Some doctors and staff were keen to attend the celebration which lasted three hours. The hospital administration, pleased with the nice repercussions this event had, decided to adopt this practice and make it a habit to organize monthly a collective birthday party for the children. Ahmed’s mother, touched by the affection and care surrounding her son, decided to take care of all expenses for the next party. The wheels of compassion and charity are truly in motion inside CCHE 57357.
