(10 May) Rotarians, Young Life Bulgaria Foundation, and Friends Bring Smiles to Children with Oncohematological Diseases at Queen Giovanna Hospital (ISUL) (+GAL)

On 10 May 2018 Rotarians form Rotary Club Sofia International, friends and regular guests of the club and the friends from Young Life Bulgaria Foundation met with children at Queen Giovanna Hospital (ISUL).

Young Life brought two guitars, puppets, games and skits to brighten the children’s day. The children on their side with their courage and zest for life brightened our day. At the end it was the children who stole the show dancing, singing, and even replacing the friends with the puppets. We met mothers and grandmothers who laughed and even shed a few tears through their smiles as their children and grandchildren enjoyed the attention. “Everyday I pray for a miracle for my grandson,” one grandmother said to our group. “And then I look at my grandchild and see the miracle in him.”

Rotary Club Sofia International would like to thank once again our member Mr. Tony Ripley and his team from Young Life Bulgaria Foundation. The thanks extend to also to our club President – Ms. Ani Hristova, who came up with the idea and coordinated the entire organization.
