On Saturday 17 June 2017, Muslim Hands and our outstanding volunteers spent the day at Maitland Cottage Children’s Hospital. Maitland Cottage is a government and donor funded hospital for impoverished children whose families cannot afford orthopaedic surgery. Children get free procedures and rehabilitation as well as an education through the onsite school.
Muslim Hands donated toiletries, breakfast cereals, nappies and new toys to the hospital while each child received sweets and toy hamper. In addition to this, our amazing volunteers donated goodies to the children.
It was a day well spent playing and interacting with the kids, our volunteers certainly put a smile on the faces of the recovering children!
