“Spread the blue love”– World Autism Month

Children, therapists and parents releasing balloons into the sky

We lit it up blue at the ASKC clinic in the Pierre Abu-Khater building on April 3 for World Autism Awareness Day. The campaign was organized by OpenMinds and the AUBMC Special Kids Clinic (ASKC) in conjunction with the ADrising team with kids, their siblings, parents, friends and staff.

The building shimmered blue every night for a week.  The event was immortalized with blue paint hand prints on a white canvas that now has pride of place in the clinic! The evening ended with merriment, blue cupcakes, lively music and the release of 100 Blue Balloons into the cool Beirut evening sky.
