A heartwarming gesture for a great cause. That’s what a group of students from Indian Schools in Oman are working on as they join hands with the Oman Cancer Association (OCA) to set up a fundraiser for cancer patients.
With the intent of supporting the smooth functioning of OCA, these students – who comprise of the ‘Band Infinity’ – will conduct their event – a concert – on the 26th of April, 2019, from 6pm at the Al Falaj Hotel in Ruwi.
In a press conference held this week [Sunday, February 18], Dr. Wahid Al Kharusi, President of the Oman Cancer Association said: “We are very happy to have such vibrant young students from the Indian Schools come and organize and work to support such a noble cause.
“It is really heart warming and exemplary to see the efforts put in by these children alongside their busy academic schedule. Their support to the community is much appreciated and we encourage more and more youth to come forward to support the society.
“I would like to congratulate the children, their parents and everyone working behind this initiative,” he added.
Band Infinity, a children’s music band based in Muscat, is slowly rising among the local community after two performances in independent shows across the capital.
According to the members, OCA’s project – Dar Al Hanan – was one of major factors that prompted the band to approach the association and offer support to them.
Dar Al Hanan is a project developed by OCA to support children with cancer residing outside the capital. Officially inaugurated in January 2011, Dar Al Hanan opened as a landmark project dedicated to serve the needs of children with cancer who require outpatient treatment.
Since then, the doors have been open to all children under the age of 17 years, suffering from cancer and with their families.
