About the project

The department of Computer Engineering started this community project that mainly aims to help cancer-stricken children by providing Nanakaly hospital with a monthly salary for two nurses, in light of the staff and resources shortages experienced within the hospital.

Back in 2017, a team from our university paid a visit to the Nanakali Hospital to investigate their needs, and initiated the joint partnership by providing the hospital with a monthly salary for two nurses, in light of the staff and resources shortages experienced within the hospital.

The partnership contract was first signed on February 9th, 2017 and the project is ongoing ever since with the help of the generous donations provided by the staff and students of Tishk International University.

How It started

The department staff and students visited the hospital to provide any kind of help that could ease the recovery of the children, like supplying the medications. but unfortunately, the children were too sick to accept outside help which could transmit unwanted germs.

Nursing Staff

The second visit our staff took to the hospital lead to the conclusion that patients were staying in unequipped and unhygienic temporary stations, even though a building was available. but the hospital was short on staff and couldn’t move the children there.

together they reached the conclusion that providing salaries for a nursing staff would be the perfect solution.

The Seminar of Nanakali Hospital Project

On December 22, 2020, Miss. Avan Azad, Research Assistant at TIU, presented a fabulous seminar on the “Nanakali Hospital Project”, which is an ongoing charity project of our university for four years, that is done by computer engineering department with the supervision of Dean of Students.

 

Miss Avan during the seminar emphasized on: “We born to give before taking, happiness is not coming from what we have, but happiness is coming from what we give; That’s why when we give we feel happier than when we take. The more we give to life the more we would be able to get from life. For sure not just giving money or things but giving our fully selves to those who in need to serve is important”.
