STEPS’ First “Teddy Bear Clinic”

STEPS invited 10 orphan children from Al Ghaith Society in Hay Nazzal (Amman) to Istishari Hospital for this first ‘Teddy Bear Clinic’ event. Through the use of teddy bears, children between the ages of 6 and 9 are introduced to what it’s like to visit a doctor, clinic or hospital, to explore health care experiences and to learn about healthy habits. BIG THANKS for their great participation to the hospital management and staff, to Dr. Jawad Yaseen, Chef Fuad, graphic artist Ayat (who designed the teddy bear card), Sariyah Express (who provided free transportation),¬† volunteer Mansour Mouasher (who documented the event with high quality photos) and to STEPS volunteers Mai and Samir. Everyone’s contributions made it a memorable event, indeed!
