New Delhi: A workshop on Metro travel was organised for children undergoing treatment for cancer, by the Delhi Metro Museum today. As part of the workshop, the children were taken on a Metro train ride from AIIMS to Patel Chowk and a guided tour of the Metro Museum there. A presentation on the basic facilities available in the Metro in case of any medical emergency was given to them and some short films on the basic etiquette of Metro travel were also screened.
Later the children also participated in a drawing competition and prizes were given to the worthy winners. About 30 children from the age of three to 18 participated in the workshop. They are currently in different stages of treatment for the disease. The event was organised in association with the NGO – Cankids…Kidscan, which works for the welfare of such children. The Metro Museum had organised a similar workshop for the orthopedically challenged children last year.
