May 31st at Hematology Center named after prof. R. Yeolyan was full of festive events dedicated to Children’s Day, organized by City of Smile Charitable Foundation, State Academy of Fine Arts of Armenia, Bridge of Health Armenia charity foundation and Hematology Center.
In the afternoon a bright program full of fun surprises and lovely gifts was organized for all inpatient kids at Pediatric Cancer and Blood Disorders Center: а bubble show, funny characters and magical show by Baby Show, very tasty treats and a festive cake from Karas national food chain and a great puppet show and games from Avetis puppet show.
Special and symbolic events were also organized within the framework of the evening program in the yard of the Hematology Center. The welcoming speeches of the organizers were followed by the awarding of children who had finished the chemotherapy with medals and certificates in recognition of their victory in the fight for life. The cured children, in turn, sent their best wishes to the children that are still going through this journey in a very special way.
The festive evening continued with a fashion show, opened by Miss Armenia 1998 and Mrs Globe 2009 Gohar Harutyunyan. During the fashion show, together with professional models the cured children also walked on the runway, wearing shirts with paintings of the children who are currently being treated.
During the evening, art pieces made by students and lecturers of State Academy of Fine Arts were exhibited for sale in the yard of the Hematology Center, and part of the sales revenue was provided to City of Smile Foundation.
