World Malaria Day: Wockhardt Hospitals organize ‘Draw from Distance’ awareness campaign for kids

World Malaria Day

Nagpur: On the occasion of World Malaria Day, Wockhardt Hospitals, Nagpur organized a drawing competition for children between the age group of 3 to 12 years. The campaign was conducted to raise awareness among the children about Malaria and its eradication.

The campaign was conducted online. Kids, not just from Nagpur, but also from various cities also participated in the event. Entries were also received from Indian National children from other countries like Australia validating the ‘Draw from Distance’.

“It is a difficult time for all of us physically as well as mentally. Children are confined at home which is important for their safety but also quite tedious. We initiated this activity to involve children in something creative”, said Mr Abhinandan Dastenavar, Centre Head, Wockhardt Hospitals, Nagpur. “The idea behind this was to spread awareness while having fun and to overcome the current challenging situation going on in Nagpur as well as the country”, he added.

World Malaria Day All the participants were given goodie bags and a participation certificate as a token of appreciation. The top three entries will be posted on the social media pages of the hospital. The themes for drawings were Malaria awareness posters and the Role of Healthcare workers in the ongoing pandemic.
