- PRESS RELEASE
Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), one of the world's leading centres for treating sick children in London, recently hosted a party for over 14 families to celebrate the National Day and Liberation Day of Kuwait.
During the week leading up to the National and Liberation days, the Kuwaiti patients made special paintings with play specialists in the play rooms of each ward, which were used as decorations across the wards. One of the mothers commented, "It is a big day for all Kuwaitis, which we celebrate every year wherever we are. We are happy and excited that we are able to have a party on the ward at GOSH. The party was lovely and was enjoyed by all the patients and their siblings."
The Minister was taken on a tour of the international ward where he met all the Kuwaiti patients undergoing treatment and enquired about their care. He was talked through the treatment plan of each patient by Consultant Dr. Phil Ancliff and Patient Case Manager Nurse Alexandra Kennett. Speaking about their experiences at GOSH and the medical treatment received, Abdul Raghman Al Otaibi's mother said: "I was very delighted to meet the minister, who enquired about the children and followed up on the treatment plans. My son was also very happy to meet the minister and have his photo taken with him." Dr. Al-Haifi was granted a memorial gift by the management of the hospital.
