ICO at Winnie Palmer Hospital
On Wednesday, May 26th, 2016, a group from the Islamic
Center of Orlando (pictured) ventured out to Winnie Palmer
Hospital for Women & Babies.
The hospital meets
the needs of the women and children at a very specific
level, creating an atmosphere of comfort along with a full
range of advanced care services. To keep the children
engaged, many groups come for educational and recreational
activities, keeping the kids focused on the positives.
Previous groups, such as Disney's Animal Kingdom, have
also made their way to interact with these groups of kids.
Our organization was blessed with an opportunity to bring
our Holiest Month to the Hospital: Ramadan.
dedicated volunteers set up a variety of Arts and Crafts,
each relating somehow to the Islamic Culture we have been
able to cultivate. The kids were given an opportunity to
design their own Sand Art Bottles, to glue and cut paper
Sheep, and to try Turkish Delights, Dates, and Chips and
Hummus. We also had a special story reading of It's
Ramadan, Curious George, in which George tags along with
his new friend, Kareem, to fast through Ramadan and
celebrate Eid. All in all, it was a wonderful experience
and everyone who participated enjoyed. Alhamdulillah, What
a Wonderful way to begin Ramadan!! Ramadan Kareem!
Yet another successful year has come to an end at Darul
Hifz, the Quran memorization school, at ICO. The
graduation function will be held on Saturday, June 4th
after Maghrib Salah at Jama Masjid. At the end of the
function, dinner will be served.
