Delivery to CANKIDS...KIDSCAN in Delhi, India - April 26, 2016
The Alyssa Starter Art Kits (SAKs) were personally delivered by Priyanka Salwan, AAFH Board Member, to CANKIDS...KIDSCAN, a registered charitable National Society, dedicated to Change for Childhood Cancer in India. Priyanka met Bagai Poonam-Chairman, Ritu Bhalla and Kapil Chawla-Staff members. Kapil gave Priyanka a tour of the palliative center and she had the opportunity to give each of 12 children one of Alyssa's SAKs. Bagai is interested in discussing possible opportunities of Music and Art Therapy programs and has given us the name of their GM Pediatric Psycho oncology, Huma Anis. We look forward to a lasting relationship with this beautiful support group for children with cancer and their families. Please visit the KIDSCAN website for more information.
