Wanna Read? Literacy Initiative Brings Power of Healing to Patients at Children's National
Wanna Read?, a non-profit organization based in the United Arab Emirates, donated dozens of English and Arabic books to Children’s National. To honor the special occasion, the hospital hosted a storybook reading for children at Seacrest Studios on September 22, 2017.
Larisa Miller, director of Circle of Hope UAE (which provides oversight for the literacy program) and Adel Mohammed Yousif, a member of the Board of Trustees, answered questions from patients and read the latest children’s book by Her Highness Sheikha Shamma bint Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan.
