Today is the Universal Children’s Day in Saudi Arabia. It was celebrated in King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center (KFSHRC) in Riyadh.
My friend Ohoud Al Amry and I volunteered in the hospital today, escorted by Miss Kholoud, the department secretary. It was an unforgettable day!
We arrived at 9 a.m., the activities started around 9:15.
My job was to help and supervise the children while they decorate cards, bookmarkers and pencils.
There were so many great children I was lucky to meet and work with today :D
Some of the little children were seriously sick and looked pale, so I had to keep it down with them, only drawing a little smiley face on the card, nothing fancy.
Others however were hyperactive! :P
They were so excited to see all the colorful materials they can use to make their little artistic works.
The hospital provided all the materials beside some gifts and sweets for the patients.
