Lives Impacted: 60

Showing children the way of kindness.

Before Aster Hospital, Al Qusais opened its doors, we invited the changemakers of tomorrow to create a testament for the world to see. Around 60 children planted trees inside the campus and created ‘Wahdah’ - an art installation.

‘Wahdah’ is a promise made by children from different walks of life, united in the message that we can only affect kindness in the world outside if we are kind from within.

The children worked, played, and learned together as they used their imagination and creativity to fill the artwork with colors and hope. The piece now stands as a reminder for us all to be kind, inclusive, and unbiased; or simply put - humane.
