Every year Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357 hosts hundreds of visitors.
Giulia, an Italian tourist, was simply passing by when the brilliance of the hospital’s architecture and gardens captured her attention. Her blog features pictures and descriptions of what was clearly a moving experience for her.
It’s impossible to put into words what one feels when one tours the hospital and meets the patients. During a recent visit by Bob Bradley, Egypt’s National Soccer Coach, he refers to the “spirit inside this hospital.”
During this festive time of the year, we often speak of the “Holiday Spirit.” It’s a festive spirit, full of life, light, hope and humility. The same words we hear time and time again to describe Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt, 57357.
“I can’t find the appropriate words to explain what my wife and I felt after we finished touring the hospital. I feel very humble and proud at the same time.”
— Mohamed Fakhry, Board Member, MIDO Intl S.A.E
“What I have learned about working with the people in Cairo is total humility. That we think that we are somehow at the pinnacle of the system; yet people in Egypt get up and do things with fewer resources and fewer promises, and fewer guarantees, day after day after day.”
— Dr. Leslie Lehman, Director of the Stem Cell Transplant Program,
Harvard’s Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Children’s Hospital Boston.
