Bal Umang - Health with Dignity
It’s generally not a lot of fun for anyone to be in a hospital, but it’s especially tough on kids. Though doctors, nurses, family, and friends make long stays more bearable, still pediatric patients can feel lonely, bored, and scared. During hospital stays and/or visits, children and their families experience unusual amounts of stress, anxiety, and discomfort.
Recognising the therapeutic and entertaining nature of the art of storytelling. Gunjan has conceptualized a storytelling program called Bal Umang at the children's wards of the Zonal Hospital Dharamsala. Using our storytelling volunteers as well as storytelling performances by celebrities, artists, sports persons, teachers, writers, journalists, and all the faces that are very popular among children. This work has been going through by the support from community and volunteer contributions.
Our initiatives have made a significant positive impact in the community, and with your help, we look forward to many more such social welfare engagements.
