Fortis Hospital salutes little superheroes on Children’s Day

What happens when a six year old child is brought with two failed kidneys? What happens when an iron rod travelling at a lethal pace from the second storey of a building pierces an 11 year old girl? What happens when a baby is born just 25 weeks into the womb weighing 600gms? What happens when a six year old is brought with Dengue induced complications resulting in convulsion and bleeding into lungs?

They fight hand-in- hand with the doctors. They cheat death. They celebrate life. In this age and time when the world is ruled by adult values and norms, Fortis Hospital Anandapur feels humbled in saluting these indomitable spirits on this Children’s Day felicitating them as FORTIS SUPERHEROES.

Speaking on the occasion, Samir Singh, Zonal Director, Fortis Healthcare Ltd (East), said: “Children’s day is celebrated to give respect, support and encouragement to the next generation. In a world where children are progressively being seen as passive recipients of an adult run societies values, beliefs and norms, it is important to enable the society to begin recognizing children as active participants of societal change and growth. These little angels have proven they are fighters and are great idols for us adults to emulate. We are celebrating life, our future and also our doctors who never lost heart.”
