Impact

Muskaan

The Islamabad Hub on a bi-annual basis organizes an event at the local public hospital, PIMS, for the children admitted in the cancer ward and their families. 'Muskaan' means smile in Urdu and the aim of the project is to bring smiles to the faces of the children undergoing chemotherapy and to their families who are undergoing such a huge tribulation. The nurses and the doctors working in the cancer ward are also invited. The activities include a magic show, a musical sing-along by a band that features a singer/guitarist from the hub, storytelling, art competition, games, etc. The event is predominantly funded by the Shapers, who also make necessary arrangements for lunch for all participants. The event ends with the Shapers distributing bags, candies, and most importantly books.
