Eid Al-Fitr Holiday Party for Pediatric Patients at Black Lion Hospital

As usual Mathiwos Wondu-YeEthiopia Cancer Society (MWECS) together with its Muslim members & volunteers celebrated 1438th Eid Al-Fitr Holiday with the pediatric patients and their families/caregivers at the seventh floor of Black Lion Hospital on July 2, 2017. Mathiwos Wondu Ye-Ethiopia Cancer Society (MWECS) is participating in this kind of ceremony from the beginning of the organization inception till now on the Holidays of Christians and Muslim.

Thanks to our Muslim members and faithful supporters, delicious lunch was served for pediatric patients and their families. Painting, questions and answer contests were also held among the children and that created a wonderful festive atmosphere. Different kinds of awards were given to the winners.




































Cancer patients and their families face many challenges that may leave them feeling overwhelmed, afraid and lonely. It is difficult to cope with these challenges or to talk even to the supportive family members and friends. Often support groups like ours can help people affected by cancer to feel less desolate and this can improve their ability to deal with the uncertainties and challenges that cancer brings. In fact, attention to the emotional burden of cancer is sometimes part of a patient’s treatment plan.

We would like to thank all involved and participated in the party. This process has highlighted once again the enormous power of a united cancer control community. From the global to local level, we have united behind a common strategy and made our voices heard loud and clear. We have to continue our united effort and commitment and will not rest until we have quality health services for those living with cancer and other NCDs, and until  measures are in place to stop the increase in new cases. Together, we are moving into a new era for global cancer control and more than ever before we are certain, together we can challenge the growing burden of cancer and can make a difference!
