Eid al Fitr at GOSH
This June children, families and staff across Great Ormond Street Hospital came together to celebrate Eid al Fitr. Children and families on the wards were surprised with a small gift on the day of Eid which was given by a host of special visitors from Star Wars as well as Batman! Children also enjoyed an afternoon of celebrations at the annual hospital-wide party.
During the party, patients and their families enjoyed henna, face painting, a choir performance as well as arts and crafts and authentic Arabic cuisine.
Father of Kuwaiti patient Hamad expressed how it was great to feel be able to feel at home and celebrate Eid with his family at the hospital. !This party has been a lot of fun - it's so lovely to see so many families together celebrating such a beautiful occasion. Thank you to Great Ormond Street Hospital for looking after and protecting my son."
