Every Christmas season there is a group of people who rally together to bring Christmas cheer to those who are under the weather, to be more precise the recepients of this good cheer are the patients at the Cancer Hospital. If you're wondering why I'm bringing this up in October. Well… Christmas is just around the corner, 98 days as I write this and the people I’m talking about are the people at Spread A Little Love (SALL).
If you were very sick and cooped up in hospital for days and weeks and months on end especially during the festive season, wouldn't you love some company and some festive good cheer? This is exactly what SALL does. The project revolves around entertainment and sharing good tidings. SALL takes with them calypso bands which visits each ward with song and making merry. There will also be a magician/Santa and magic balloons entertain the pediatric wards.
SALL, is an annual charity event, which is organized for NCI- National Cancer Institute better known as Cancer Hospital Maharagama and renamed recently as the Apeksha Hospital.
Every year in October, they start campaigning to raise their much needed funds. There are approximately 200 children, and 800 adult patients (both male and female).
