Mohammed Barwani Charity Foundation spreads cheer amongst children at Sultan Qaboos University Hospital
Recently, the Mohammed Al Barwani Charity Foundation (MBCF) brought extra joy to the children in the pediatric department of Sultan Qaboos University Hospital. In its efforts to provide support to patients, the Foundation distributed goody bags among children across the wards. The wards were decorated with colourful balloons to make it festive and there was a clown who brought smiles to the children’s faces with his antics.
Sharifa Al Harthy, Chairperson, MBCF, said, “The Holy Month of Ramadhan is a time of giving. We believe that children are the future and what better way to celebrate this Holy Month than bringing a smile to their beautiful faces. One of our key agenda at the Foundation is to support Omani Youth be it through education, medical assistance or supporting families under the social welfare scheme. We are glad that the children at Sultan Qaboos University Hospital are happy.”
Iman Al Barwani, Manager - Corporate Communications & CSR, Petrogas E&P, added, “This event is supported by our Foundation as an extension of continuous support and collaboration extended through our CSR programmes to Sultan Qaboos University Hospital in appreciation of its efforts in sustaining the overall health of citizens in Oman.”
