November 14th marks the International World Diabetes Day, when all over the world activities are organized to help raise the awareness for the prevention of diabetes – Visit: http://www.idf.org/worlddiabetesday.
Here are some details of one of the event in Bucharest, Romania:
Along with our friends from Asociatia Faborisa, and “Zburdalici” puppet theater, we put together an entertainment program for the children, under care of Marie Curie Hospital, and their parents. The event was supplemented by snacks and refreshments donated by “Fornetti and Cryomand. Approximately 100 people gathered that day to enjoy the event.
During the opening of the event Dr Mihaela Mihu took the time to welcome everyone and shared tips and information in regards to diabetes.
After that everyone’s attention was grabbed by Fabian Sancez, from Asociatia Faborisa, whose clown performance kept everyone in stitches, from the youngest to the oldest. Both children and parents were laughing and applauding at his funny antics. It is said that laughter is the best medicine.
The next treat everyone enjoyed was the performance by “Zburdalici”. The unforgettable “Wolf, Wolf” story made the children sing, made them laugh, kept them in suspense, and most of all helped instill in them the invaluable moral of the importance of honesty.
We have counted it a privilege to have had the chance for three consecutive years now to contribute in this way to the cause of raising the awareness and prevention of diabetes.
We hope you enjoy the slide show below with photos from the event.
