Illness affects more than children's bodies. The endless hours, the separation from friends and family, the lack of childhood activities take a toll on a child's spirits. In addition to being unwell,or in pain they may also feel scared, lonely. And of course there is the anxiousness of the parents. It is nature's instinctive action that they stand guard and are worried about their child's well-being, which in turn can aggravate the child's own distress.


Children in hospital are usually recipients of care, with this simple but effective gift we turn them into care givers. They will be caring for a small bean, see it sprout in the hospital environment, sending the positive message of health, growth. The magic pot also shows the child support and care. It also brings support to the parents, knowing that their child's mental wellbeing is being supported.

Long-Term Impact

To alleviate their fear and loneliness, create a positive memory about their hospital stay, empower them to take an active role as carer
