Reach Out To Asia (ROTA) Chairperson Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani celebrated the joy of Garangaoh with patients at the Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) Leukemia Center as part of ROTA’s Ramadan 2012 Project, sponsored by Occidental Petroleum of Qatar Ltd.
The ROTA volunteers joined a large group of Leukemia Center staff and patients for the traditional Qatari celebration as children dressed in costume, enjoyed fun activities, exchanged gifts of bags filled with sweets and nuts, and sang traditional Garangaoh songs.
