Miss World Ksenia Sukhinova with one of the young patients

Julia Morley, Chairman and CEO of Miss World Limited and International President of Variety, the Children’s Charity, was joined by reigning Miss World Ksenia Sukhinova as they paid a visit to the Sydney Children’s Hospital. They were there to celebrate Variety’s $1million pledge over the next five years.

One of the patients at the hospital, Keira Vose, who is recovering from a recent operation where she had a brain tumour removed, had especially asked hospital staff if she could meet Ksenia. After hearing about this, Ksenia paid Keira a surprise visit. As the two were talking she told Ksenia that she dreamed of one day becoming Miss World too.

After speaking to Keira, Julia Morley said “The Miss World crown is a symbol of fundraising for children. Usually no one but Miss World can wear the crown, but Keira is a very special girl, she has done so well following her operation”. Keira’s wish was granted and she was given special permission to wear the Miss World Crown as Ksenia removed it from her own head and placed it on Keira’s. Ksenia commented “It was a pleasure to meet Keira, who has been such a brave girl following her operation. I have really enjoyed visiting Sydney Children’s Hospital. It makes me happy knowing that the money is going to such a worthy institution”.

Julia Morley and Ksenia then said goodbye to Keira and were shown around the rest of the hospital. The staff explained that it not only offers hospital care but also looks after the local community for all matters relating to child health. The hospital has a full range of specialist services which treat children with many conditions including cancer, trauma, HIV/AIDS, congenital abnormalities, disabilities, heart disease and respiratory disorders.
