While most people would be reveling in joy for the coming of the new year, there are those who do not share the same pomp and pageantry. Every year, for more than a decade, members of the Malaysian Red Crescent Society, Island Chapter has brought joy and hope to the patients in the Pediatric wards, Hospital Pulau Pinang.

The New Year Party this year was organised by the dedicated committees and members of the Volunteer Aid Detachment 21, as with the parties in previous years. The event started at 9.30am in the morning where the Red Crescent Society members were welcomed by the management and staff of the hospital. The members started out by sorting out all kind of soft toys, books, food & drinks into 100 goodie bags, which will be distributed to the patients in the wards. Most of the goods were donated by individuals, private organization and schools.

We would like to extend our utmost gratitude for their contribution. Mr. Kam Man Ho from VAD 21, who is also a professional clown /magician, started to prepare balloons sculpture with help of the youth (secondary school) members. Meanwhile, others members started to distribute books, packets of foods, cakes, drinks & balloon sculpture to every child warded there. They were very happy to receive different kinds of cute little animals made by balloons as well as food packs. After distributing the goodie bags , the children from ward C1 & C2 were gathered together for a rainbow show.

Dr. Chong Hon Yew along with Mr. Lim Choon Kiat as the representative from Astronomy Club of University Science Malaysia had the hands on activity with the children to make rainbow shine in the recycled tissue paper box. The children gave a very good respond to the activity.

The party came to an end at 11.45am. All of us gathered along for a short speech from the Organizing Chairman as an appreciation to thank everyone for their contribution especially Penang General Hospital to achieve this event into great success. A cake cutting/singing ceremony was presented to the children at the closing ceremony.
