SHEPRO donates to children with cancer

Members of SHEPRO made an impromptu visit to the Pediatric Hematology and Oncology ward of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical (PG Hospital) on the 18th of March, 2014. The ward mostly houses children with blood cancer. The visit was made as an attempt to socialize with the patients and their families, and empathize with them. Dr. Farida, one of the doctors who are familiar with the patients of that ward briefed the volunteers about the struggles of the doctors and patients against cancer. The event ended successfully with a donation of Taka 21000 to struggling families for medicine costs by one of our donors, Md. Saiful Latif Sultan. The volunteers commented after the event that their efforts were warmly appreciated by the doctors and the children’s families and the experience was truly humbling.
