Visit to Children’s Cancer Ward at KNH

On Wednesday 14th June 2017, the Student’s Welfare department in collaboration with our Muslim community at KeMU & our Peace Council Club visitedthe Children’s cancer ward at Kenyatta National Hospital.

As we are a University guided by certain values; love, empathy, community service and many more. Our students felt the need and the urgency to reach out and to serve.

What we all learnt and what we all had in common from our experience that day were simple lessons of humility and happiness. These children face so many challenges each and every day, a magnitude of which they don’t even know nor understand. They don’t have the basic necessities and yet they beam with happiness, songs, laughter and joy. A child’s happiness is so innocent and their love and laughter is so contagious! Seeing this and experiencing this was so humbling. Happiness is something that should not be based on any material item or person, it is completely up to you.
