And here are tidbits of the night ...
Abdullah's mother promised him that he would never again have to stay in a hospital.
In 1989, after attending a series of lectures organised by KACCH on children's perceptions of death and dying, Abdullah's mother approached KACCH, and it was agreed that they would help her take care of her little boy at home. Abdullah died in her arms at home just before his fifth birthday.
Witnessing Abdullah and his family's courage and determination to live as normal a life as possible in the face of his approaching death, encouraged KACCH to work towards the provision of similar
care for other children in Kuwait who are terminally ill. A children's hospice has now been designed to give those children the specialised care they need, ensuring peace and dignity at the end of their short lives, and provide their families with support and comfort in their bereavement. It will be called “Bayt Abdullah” in memory of Abdullah and his family.
May the dream come true, and many thanks go to Alia for designing such a lovely place, that she explained floor by floor.
The spoke about their experience in being in a triathlon and explaining what is it :) And their plan to introducing this sport to Kuwait, with the 3 Club. A triathlon is basically a race with three phases, all done by the same athlete. Swimming, Cycling and lastly Running! Such an ability to be a competitive in three sports in one day is amazing, the fitness required for it is big, yet achievable by anyone, even in Kuwait! the 4 above are living proof for it. Ahmad & Rabaa did a great job in introducing this sport and shedding the light on their participation in "The Garmin Barcelona Triathlon". Well done :>
She spoke about her experience in the K4K project initiated and run by LoYAC. Also like Valerie, her experience with an other culture touched me, especially the children of Kenya. By building a school kids were very grateful and the people over there too, a simple right a child has in our lovely country, there it was a dream. Education and health are the most two noble gifts anyone can offer. Thank you Maryam and the people in LoYAC for this project.
