Indus Hospital and Health Network (IHHN) celebrated the 21st batch of iHope volunteers. Indus Hospital organized its 18th iHope volunteer program in June 2022. This program was organized for students of different prestigious schools in Karachi.

This volunteer program has been organized by the IHHN since 2015. This volunteer program aims to recognize the importance of empathy and care in the youth of Pakistan. These lessons of humanity and compassion are given to volunteers believing that will serve as champions for a prosperous future. During the volunteer program, the students were divided into multiple groups including helpers, healers, protectors, and rescuers.

 

During the training, students spend 2 days in the Adult Ward and Physical Rehabilitation Unit of the hospital where they interviewed patients and covered their battling stories with different health conditions. Further, the students also spent time in the Pediatric Department where they conducted activities like story-telling, origami, painting, and other crafts.

Other than this, interactive lectures and informative sessions were also a part of the volunteer training program. These lectures were given by Dr. Bilal Hassan and Shiren Zulfiqar (Community Health Directorate and IHHN training staff. A closing ceremony was held on the last day of the volunteer program to honor the students' participation in community service and encourage their engagement with IHHN’s Indus Yaqeen program.
