‘Art with a Heart’ 2024 – Paediatric Cancer Patients Inspiring Through Art

In a celebration of resilience, creativity, and hope, the Indus Hospital and Health Network (IHHN) proudly presents the third annual “Art with a Heart” exhibition. This historic event, now in its third consecutive year, continues to serve as a beacon of hope for pediatric cancer patients, showcasing their extraordinary journey through the transformative power of art.

We extend our heartfelt appreciation to IHHN’s dedicated Women Ambassadors, Sara Chapra and Ayesha Hussain, whose unwavering support has made “Art with a Heart” a cherished tradition. Their passion and commitment have been instrumental in uplifting the spirits of our young artists and amplifying their voices.

This year’s exhibition features a breathtaking collection of 106 paintings, each bearing a testament to the bold spirit of pediatric cancer patients. Sidra, Maryam Khan, Maryam Ghaffar, Misbah, and Tamannah, mentored by our i-inspire ambassador Ashifa, have poured their hearts and souls into every brushstroke, transforming their pain into impressive works of art.

Despite facing immense challenges, these young artists have drawn strength from within, using art as a means of expression and healing. Each painting serves as a window into their emotional journey, capturing moments of pain, resilience, hope, and triumph with raw honesty and profound beauty.

At IHHN, we are committed to providing holistic care to pediatric cancer patients, addressing not only their physical but also their emotional and psychological well-being. Through our Psychosocial Department and art therapy initiatives, we empower patients to harness their creativity as a tool for healing and self-expression.

The exhibition serves as a testament to the power of unity and compassion. Individuals from all walks of life come together to celebrate the courage and creativity of these patients. Journalists, artists, corporate leaders, philanthropists, and members from various sectors join hands in support of our noble mission.

As we reflect on three years of “Art with a Heart,” we are filled with gratitude for the unwavering support of our community. Together, we have raised funds and awareness to provide countless children diagnosed with cancer a future filled with hope, healing, and happiness.

Dr. Muhammad Shamvil Ashraf, Executive Director of the Medical Services Directorate at IHHN, acknowledges the contributions of all pediatric patients, survivors, healthcare staff, organizing team members, and steadfast supporters, recognizing their pivotal role in the success of “Art with a Heart” once again. Let us persist in standing united in solidarity, extending hope and healing to those whose courage and creativity serve as sources of inspiration.
