Brings paediatric patients an expressive art festival in collaboration with OncoHappy
Observing the Paediatric Cancer Awareness month i.e., September, OncoHappy has curated India’s first ever expressive arts festival and is conducting it with over 50 local partners.
The LALA teamed up with the volunteers of OncoHappy to help them in organising creative healing sessions at St. Jude Childcare Centre, Delhi-NCR, India. The therapy sessions are being conducted between for seven days i.e. from September 24th to September 30th, 2018. This is being held across multiple cancer centres in Mumbai, Delhi-NCR & Bangalore and LALA World is humbled to be part of this creative drive.
The 7-day festival will include multiple therapies, including, poetry, music, dance movement, theatre, cooking, storytelling, craft and art. The instructors holding these workshops are a group of artists and therapists, spending time teaching children the importance of mental health to cope up with their treatment.
Approximately 9 million people lost their lives to this dreadful disease last year. LALA World recognises the pain borne by cancer patients and is doing its bit to to reduce the traumatic experiences that they are suffering.
We encourage our community members to empathise with people in need and contribute towards building a better society.
