Making wishes come true aboard the Big Bus

Making wishes come true aboard the Big Bus

Children beneath remedy for cancer at the hospital, along with their mothers and health-related practitioners, boarded the bus that toured Muttrah passing along the scenic city landscapes along Wadi Kabir, the corniche and old Muscat.

“It’s a short trip, and it’s a good diversion for these children who are stuck in the routine of treatments,” mentioned a employees nurse Sameera who was with the kids on the bus.

Talking about the security procedures onboard the bus she added, “All emergency precautions were been taken to ensure that the children were in a sterile and safe environment.”

Puja Khimji from the charity foundation I-Wish explained how these kids are typically not permitted to go out into public locations simply because of low immunity. “So this idea of a city tour in a bus turned out to be one that factored in all the risks, especially since they are in an enclosed, contained space with the doctors and nurses accompanying the children incase of an emergency.”

The foundation has been actively operating amongst the young cancer individuals at The Royal Hospital for more than six years.

Many of the young cancer individuals getting remedy at the hospital typically are from the interiors, mentioned Karen Van de Ruit from I-Wish. “They probably haven’t seen Muscat. When Krupa Khimji from Mosaic Events suggested the idea of a bus tour for the children, it seemed like a refreshing idea for the kids,” Karen added.

The tour was supported by Big Bus Tour and Travel Point Oman. “A small collaboration like this can make a huge difference and it’s encouraging to see organisations come together for a good cause,” mentioned Krupa.
