SPREADING COLORS OF JOY TO THE LIFE OF OUR PATIENTS
In collaboration with Nelson Paints, the Psychosocial Team of the Indus Hospital & Health Network (IHHN) transformed the Daycare Room of the Korangi Campus’ Pediatric Complex with its bright colors.
Pediatric Oncology patients undergoing chemotherapy spend the day in the Daycare. Cancer treatment is draining and more so for children, which is why the hospital environment becomes overwhelming for them.
The Psychosocial Team arranged a painting activity to make the Daycare more colorful to deal with this.The “under the sea” theme was chosen after the children voted for it.
With the help of volunteers, a 10-hour long activity took place on December 19, 2021, to paint the room. The volunteers also hung hand-painted sea creatures on the ceiling.
The next day when the patients arrived at the Daycare Room, their reaction was heart-warming. They were shocked, happy, excited, and awe of the whole transformation. The children said they felt as if they were in real under the sea.
