Republic Day celebration with Children suffering from Cancer


Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if you have to dig a little.

In the otherwise gloomy atmosphere of a hospital, it was a fun-filled day for children fighting against cancer. Students from various schools and colleges gathered at AIIMS to celebrate Republic Day with children at the cancer ward.

Our Volunteers including School Students along with Students from Venkteshwara College and Kirori Mal College, distributed crayons, colour books, chocolates, biscuits and candies to children at the cancer ward. Some students also played guitar.

We held the programme for two reasons. Firstly, all students somehow celebrate Republic Day, but those in hospitals can’t do the same. We wanted them to have a feel of the day. Secondly, today is also the birthday of Subhas Chandra Bose.

The number of kids at the cancer ward was high on Monday as it was also the Outpatient Day for pediatrics cancer.

Doctors took questions from the patients and guided them on how to lead a normal life in spite of fighting cancer.
