Human Aid UK bringing smiles to children in hospitals across the North West!

By | United Kingdom

Human Aid UK visited the Tameside General Hospital, the Royal Oldham Hospital and the Royal Manchester Children’s hospital. About 100 gifts were bought, thanks to donations from the general public and a discount from Smyths Toy Store in Bury.

 

The aim was to bring smiles to the children and the parents, while they were undergoing treatment. They also wanted to raise awareness of Eid and why it is celebrated.

 

One of the parents couldn’t hold back her tears when she met the volunteers. She was saying how wonderful the project was, she works in a primary school and knew the impact of it.

 

Abdul Khalik, one of the volunteers said: “When you go to the hospitals and see the kids… You think how small but beautiful this project is and I regret for not doing more’.

 

A great day for the kids, parents, volunteers and even the nurses who thanked Human Aid volunteers for their kindness.

 

This project has been running for 5 years and next year Human Aid UK hope to distribute gifts to more hospitals in the UK.

 The Royal Oldham Hospital was delighted to welcome volunteers of Human Aid UK who arrived bearing gifts and cakes for the youngsters occupying the children’s ward.

Human Aid UK is a charity which endeavors to develop sustainable economic and communal developments encapsulating all walks of life; they have currently many projects operating abroad; from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

The organisation applies a partnership based approach; this allows the charity to effectively and reliably distribute its aid as well as building a firm structure from which the local communities can continue improving and expanding. The fact that a partner based approach is implemented it has seen the organisation grow constantly.

Although Human Aid UK headquarters are located in London, the Manchester branch has allowed further expansion and greater operational scope for the charity to carry out its activities.

The charity is one which specialises in aid delivery to areas experiencing conflict and has sent delegations to countries such as Syria, Gaza, Burma and Bangladesh.

Mohammed Hossain, a volunteer for the Manchester branch commented;

‘We have been wanting to widen our activities closer to home for a while now, we thought there could be no better time during this festive period and therefore we decided to pay a visit to the sick children so they could also part take’

The festive period, referring to Eidul Adha, celebrated by Muslims all over world, prompted the volunteers to focus their attention towards the local children in less fortunate circumstances.

The organisation arrived with cars loaded with Eid gifts and cakes which was met with joy from the children and appreciation from both parents and staff.

Having successfully completed and maintained campaigns internationally the organisation will now be setting its sights on further accelerating its network in the UK, one of its primary focuses being providing for the needs of under privileged children in local communities. Abdul Mu’min who is the Manchester branch lead summarised the organisations ambitions, stating;

‘Our motto is ‘Bringing hope to life’ and that’s exactly what we intend to do.’
