Kuwait Charity Run and Bayt Abdullah Children’s Hospice Have Teamed Up To Bring To You In 2011 Kuwait 1st-Half Marathon.

Its exciting to see events such as these in Kuwait, and all for a very good cause. The half marathon will be on Saturday March 19th starting at 8am. There are many professional and keen runners that have prepared for the 21km run, this is Kuwait’s 1st half marathon. They also have a 10km run for those who want to participate but have not trained for the 21km. All registration fees will be donated to Bayt Abdullah’s Children Hospice

I have been very happy to see the support that Bayt Abdulla has recieved in Kuwait, and I hope it continues to grow. I for one will be excited to see this marathon, I will donate but not run since I’m horrible shape these days.

Bayt Abdulla

Bayt Abdullah, the first children’s hospice in Kuwait and the Middle East. It is a hospice, free of charge, to all nationalities to care for children in distress at a moment when hospitals are no longer needed.

This campaign is the first of its kind in Kuwait as the response of each company or individual contacted has given a full support in their capacity to offer in kind a generous contribution.

Bayt Abdulla is a new concept to Kuwait, something that we have been lacking for a long time. I have been interested in it for some time and lots of people I know involved in it. The main idea is providing a facility and services to care for children who are ill or terminally ill that need a help regardless of the period. When asking about what exactly they do, here is simple question:

What is Pediatric Palliative Care?
Pediatric palliative care is a philosophy and program of care for children with life-threatening conditions focusing on enhancing quality of life and relieving suffering for the child, family members and other significant people in the child’s life. To “palliate” means to make comfortable by treating a child’s symptoms from an illness or medical
condition.

Through the efforts of everyone and every company involved they have managed to make this amazing facility. Providing help to any children that fit the criteria regardless of nationality or religion, the main. A specialized professional service, free of charge for all children in Kuwait who meet the criteria for admission to the hospice, regardless of nationality or religion. Ansam already posted about an event that has taken place, but you can also help through donations or helping them any way you see fit.
