In a heartwarming gesture of kindness, Manchester United players Evie Rabjohn and Irene Guerrero brought joy to Mater Dei Hospital when they visited the Rainbow Ward at the Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre. The Rainbow Ward is known for its commitment to providing comprehensive care for young patients undergoing oncology and haematology treatment, offering both inpatient and outpatient services.
After being greeted by hospital staff, the players were taken to the Rainbow Ward where they met the nurse in charge of the specialised ward. The nurse gave them a tour of the ward and explained that there are currently three patients in the ward.
Understanding the challenges these children face in their fight against cancer, the players presented them with a signed Manchester United kit and engaged in light-hearted conversations, a gesture that undoubtedly put a smile on the faces of these young patients and their families who are going through a difficult time.
The visit created a positive atmosphere and left a lasting impression on both the players and the hospital community, fostering a sense of unity and hope in the face of health challenges.
The visit at Rainbow Ward formed part of Manchester United Women’s commitments in Malta as part of their winter training camp, held between the 3 and 8 January.
