Activities for children and youngsters undergoing treatment
Leisure is a right for children and young people and consequently, it is also a right for sick children.
Every year, then, we organize a series of activities, in and out of hospital, to facilitate their access to places of leisure and fun.
Cultural activities, trips, get-togethers, and new adventures offer the possibility to share time and experiences with other children and youngsters in similar circumstances. These activities provide energy and a better disposition to undergo the different stages in treatment.
All activities are supervised by volunteer monitors and healthcare professionals go on trips with us to provide whatever medical assistance may be needed.
