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.
