“Wanna Read ?” Shiekha’s Initiative aims to heal through reading

“Wanna Read ?” Shiekha’s Initiative aims to heal through reading

Launched by Sheikha Shamma bint Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, “Wanna Read?” aims to promote literacy amongst young patients, encourage parental engagement and inspire greater community service, by making a stay at the children’s hospital an enriching experience.

Since its establishment in 2013, the non-profit has distributed over 5,000 books to 13 reading rooms across hospitals in the country for children unable to leave their hospital beds. Organisers provide book trolleys, creating a warm and fictional universe for the children at their beds.

Make 2017 your year of giving and volunteer your time by contacting the organisation today.
