Aya and Ana are two Kurdish Children now residing in the United Kingdom. After seeing their peers at Hiwa Hospital- Sulaimani through social media outlets they decided to celebrate their birthday differently this year and donate the cost of their birthday celebration to the children receiving treatment at Hiwa Hospital.
Through Kurdistan Save the Children Mr. Kazhaw, Aya and Ana’s father, donated more than 4000 Dollars to Hiwa Hospital. With the family’s consent and the assistance of Mr. Zhilwan, Aya and Ana’s Uncle, the donations were spent on 5 smart televisions and 5 air conditioners for the Children’s Unit at Hiwa Hospital.
Aya and Ana in a letter to the children at Hiwa Hospital:
“Donating is not just giving money, it’s making a difference… We need to celebrate our birthday our way not in the traditional way… Instead of buying birthday gifts and toys… we are donating the cost of this celebration to Hiwa Hospital in Sulaimani. We hope that you enjoy our birthday…. ”
Kurdistan Save the Children expresses its gratitude and appreciation to Aya, Ana and their family for their generosity kind gesture.
