CHILDREN WITH CANCER AND HOSPITAL PROJECTS

Ensure the well-being of sick children and their families, improving their everyday lives.

Young patients' hospital stays, sometimes long and repeated, are sources of upheavals and suffering for sick children and their families. Children Action has set up programs, within the pediatric wards of the University Hospitals, aiming to improve their everyday lives during this difficult time.

GENEVA: SABRINA PROJECT

WIthin the pediatric onco-hematology unit of the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG), the Sabrina project funds 

professional services to assist sick children/adolescents, and to support their parents and the healthcare team.

Hospitalized children benefit from art therapy and other
recreational, artistic and educational support allowing: 

  • the expression of suffering in a different way; 

  • an entertaining moment taking their pain away; 

  • a time of respite for parents.

In order to facilitate the transition back to a normal life after what are often long and repeated hospitalizations, Children Action also proposes art therapy and academic support outside the hospital.

Every year, more than

100 families with sick children are 

accompanied, including 

parents and siblings

The training program

in therapeutic communication and

in hypnosis in hospital

will enable the acquisition

of pain relieving tools

and methods for more

than 660 caregivers
