A seven-year-old boy saw his dream come true on the set of Iftah Ya Simsim December 20. Bidaya Media, together with the Make A Wish Foundation, brought young Laith to the studio to meet his favorite puppet pals Elmo and Shams. Laith was given a special behind-the-scenes tour, pausing only to play with his new friends and other visiting children.
“It was a pleasure welcoming Laith and Make A Wish at the Iftah Ya Simsim park,” said Iftah Ya Simsim’s Managing Director Dr. Cairo Arafat.
“We believe in the power of laughter and fun bringing a smile to every child’s face. We look forward to continued cooperation with Make A Wish and ensuring all children have long lasting memories from their childhood.”
Bidaya Media hopes to spread more smiles across the Middle East both on screen and off with future collaborations and Iftah Ya Simsim episodes.
