Nakilat grants wishes of children at Hamad General Hospital
24 September 2017
Nakilat organised a ‘Make-A-Wish’ initiative in collaboration with Hamad General Hospital (HGH) in Doha, granting wishes to several children battling long-term cancer. ‘Make-A-Wish’ is a concept adopted worldwide to infuse hope, strength and joy in children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. It was an emotional affair as Nakilat representatives presented gifts to the children at the hospital. Accompanied by their families, the children were overjoyed to discover new electronic gadgets they had wished for, such as iPads, laptops and tablets, being gifted to them.
Nakilat Public Relations Manager, Mr Jassim Al Naama, said: “The initiative aims to put a smile on the faces of these children and strengthen their will by showing that society cares for them. Nakilat is also committed to giving back to the community through its various outreach programs outlined within its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) pillars of community, health, education and environment.”
Mr. Saad Al-Dosari, Assistant Executive Director of Public Relations at Hamad Medical Corporation, expressed his appreciation for the meaningful gesture by Nakilat: “I appreciate this initiative which is part of the social responsibility program by Nakilat on behalf of the community. We look forward to continuing to share in the collaborative efforts between Nakilat and HMC. Fulfilling the wishes of these young children will bring joy into their lives and also serve as a powerful morale booster, which we hope will not only put a smile on the faces of these brave children, but also have a positive impact on their outlook during their treatment process.”
