Spreading colours of joy to the life of our patients 

Karachi, January 06, 2022 (PPI-OT):In collaboration with Nelson Paints, the Psychosocial Team of the Indus Hospital and Health Network (IHHN) transformed the Day care Room of the Korangi Campus’ Pediatric Complex with its bright colours. Pediatric Oncology patients undergoing chemotherapy spend the day in the Day care. Cancer treatment is draining and more so for children, which is why the hospital environment becomes overwhelming for them.

The Psychosocial Team arranged a painting activity to make the Day care more colourful to deal with this. The “under the sea” theme was chosen after the children voted for it. With the help of volunteers, a 10-hour long activity took place on December 19, 2021, to paint the room. The volunteers also hung hand-painted sea creatures on the ceiling.

The next day when the patients arrived at the Day care Room, their reaction was heart-warming. They were shocked, happy, excited, and awe of the whole transformation. The children said they felt as if they were in real under the sea.

Nelson Paints has been a steadfast supporter of IHHN. Over the years, Nelson Paints have collaborated with Indus on various projects. Mr. Siraj Uddin, Managing Director, Nelson Paints is one of Indus Hospital and Health Network’s Corporate Ambassador. He was part of first cohort of IHHN Corporate Ambassador Program.
