Dasman Diabetes Institute (DDI), founded by Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS), hosted their annual Girgean Event sponsored by Asnan Kids, for children with Type 1 diabetes. The event took place at the Institute on Thursday, 23 June, where children were welcomed by DDI and Asnan’s mascots, and the public gathered in the atrium to receive free health and teeth consultations by experts. DDI, KidZania, Fantasy World, Saveco, and Asnan set up booths around the premise. A host of fun activities for kids were offered, such as face painting and henna, as well as educational consultations with DDI’s reputable dieticians.
For the entertainment portion of the program, the Institute’s young patients conducted a beautiful piano piece followed by a sketch show by Fantasy World, then a magic show where they interacted with their audience and involved the children with their various acts.
A consultation session was led by an Asnan dentist who gave valuable tips on the proper way to brush teeth, and highlighted the importance of keeping teeth healthy. Then, another talented young DDI patient took center stage to perform a couple of songs on his guitar.
The children were treated to an interactive game show and had a good laugh with the clever performers. Finally, before leaving they received Girgean gift bags sponsored by Saveco, and giveaway bags sponsored by KidZania and Fantasy World.
