Bengali New Year

Happy Bengali New Year!  To celebrate the new year, Dan and I went to BSMMU to give out gifts of toys and clothing which had been donated to the recent toy drive.  We were joined by one of the newer play therapy volunteers, Karen.

Wearing a Happy Canada Day T-shirt!
New shirt and bag with art supplies for Shishir who loves to draw.  He has a slightly more rare type of leukaemia (AML).

This is the first time that I've seen this patient smile! Mom also looks happier than before.  She as leukaemia, the most common type of cancer in childhood.

This child would not be consoled by toys until the nurse backed away from the patient. He was probably worried that he would be getting poked.
