A Day For Hope: IEEE University of Sharjah SB Visits Cancer Patients


A group of IEEE and WIE members in University of Sharjah and Friends of Cancer Patients in UAE (FOCP) – http://www.focp-uae.org/ – had arranged for a visit to the Children Cancer Patients in Dubai Hospital on 22 April 2009.

The aim of the visit was to delight the children and to help in raising their joy and happiness by holding a party for them.

There is no such a good feeling as the one you have when you draw a smile on a patient’s face.

The party was started by giving the children gifts, playing with them puzzle games, drawing on their faces and hands, and coloring paints.

It was a full of fun, the kids were so happy in playing with the students.

The party was finished by a magic show done by a magician; they played with him and had a lot of fun.

One of the comments we got from the senior social worker Ms. Fatma Al Sewad in Dubai Hospital that “This party made great impact on the kids and encouraged them to take the treatment kindly”.

The students promised to come back and hold parties for the children in the future which made the kids so happy.
