Halloween together
Halloween together

Dear friends of Magic Hospital,

as you know our activities have been limited due to Covid-19 situation. It doesn’t look like this will improve any time soon unfortunately. We are brainstorming and looking for other ideas how we can support hospitalised children and children impacted by the school closures or living in shelters. 

Since our last report we have nevertheless managed to organise some activites events which we would love to share with you.

A halloween party with painting in Harry Potter style with the school children and bringing some gifts and jjoy to hospitalised children through gifts from our Abracadbra program. 

For Christmas we decided to ask the nurses from the Huaxin Hospital what they need, instead of toys. The answer was diapers. They are so needed as the kids are from poor rural areas and parents have to provide for the supplies, so we can help a little this way. But not to worry, it was not just practical. The nurses put some of the left over presents from the Abracadbra program and slipped them with the diapers under the tree.

Miriam and I want to thank you for your continuous support. Let us l hope we’ll be able to go out there and bring those smiles more often to the children who still need it more than ever!

Stay safe and well!

Best wishes Claudia

Dear MH Community,

we miss you, and hope that you are well, your family and friends included. Covid keeps impacting our lives, and  our Magic Hospital activities.  Our hospital programs Clowns & Co and Playtime are unfortunately still on hold, and for now we have no knowing when we can resume them. 

But... thankfully we have our program outdoorsy day. At the moment we can organise them less frequently than we want to but our tireless volunteers were able to provide a fun pottery workshop for and with the children Shunyi  Gucheng school.

A big Thank you to the children, teachers and volunteers who made this memorable day possible. 

We share with you some images from that day, and  feel the children's eagerness and enthusiasm sparkle despite the masks!  

We plan to be less of a stranger in your mail inbox, and hopefully can organise more of these days again.

Please take care and stay well

Best wishes

Claudia

Big smile from Kunhao back to you!
Big smile from Kunhao back to you!

Dear Magic Hospital community,

In the light of the developments regarding COVID-19, we want to say that our thoughts are with you and everybody  affected by the virus around the globe. We very much hope that you, your families and friends are all well and safe. 

Due to the uncertainty and risks that came with the spread of the Covid outbreak, we had decided end of January to put all our activities in China on hold. Our activites will resume when the situation is more stable and the safety of the children, staff and volunteers is again guaranteed. We are seeing the first shimmers of hope that this may be soon...

However, we could bring a smile before the lockdown to 8 year old Kunhao, a boy with Down syndrom. 

Kunhao lives in a poor area in Guizhou province. He had to undergo heart surgery in Huaxin hospital earlier this year. This is where our volunteers from our Playtime program met him. The sweetness of the boy and the love of his parents touched us deeply. He recovered well from the heart surgery, surrounded by his doting family. However, he was not going back to school, as for him attending to school is a challenge in itself 

Education and proper care have been shown to improve quality of life for children with Down syndrome. So we wanted to support him in his physical and mental development, especially while his school education being interrupted.

After exchanges with the boy's mother, Mirjam, MH China Director decided to provide educational and developmental toys and tools for this boy through our Abracadbra program. 

The shopping cart filled quickly with toys and tools stuff this wonderful boy: wooden music instruments, Duplo, Play doh, learning puzzles and a drawing board, and a four wheel bike which will be sent to him directly. 

Laughter and smiles remain important, especially in these challenging times. His mother sent us some images, and we hope his smile warms your heart and brings you some positive thoughts and distractions.

Thank you for your ongoing support, please continue to stay well and safe, and we hope till soon!

Warmly, Claudia

Happiness!

Hello dear fellow friend of Magic Hospital,  

I hope all is good with you? I wanted to share some important news with you: we have added another amazing Board Member. 

Shakira Miracle is a human-centered systems designer and strategic thinker with almost 20 years’ experience serving the philanthropic, government, faith, and business sectors in North America and Asia.

As a former volunteer and staff of Magic Hospital China, she understands its complexity of national and international coordination with placed based program design.  Along with a strong belief in social impact and systems innovation, she has a passion for supporting holistic, effective, and inclusive means of trauma healing in children, both physical and emotional. 

We are excited that we can welcome her to be part of the trustees of Magic Hospital.

Do you still have another minute? Here some more quick updates:

- Clown program: Mr. Liu clowns tirelessly for the hospitalised children in China. Our dear clown Jean, who left China recently,  continues his role as Magic Hospital Smile Ambassador during his adventure on his Latin America travel, recently in Mexico, Chile and Peru. 

- Playtime program: volunteers will now go Friday and Saturday to play with hospitalised children

- Outdoorsy Program: Our october Outdoorsy day- warm up exercises and happy running activity with 20 children from Gucheng school at the Olympic Park. The kind Manager from the Adidas club in the Olympic Park in Beijing liked the activity and the children so much, that he spontaneously sent the surprise gifts to the school. Upcoming Outdoorsy day - a visit to the Aquarium

- We need your help!  we have added  two new microprojects on Global Giving:  for the Magic Beans project, and one for the Abracadabra , Make a wish program. Please do support us, ideally on Giving Tuesday, when your donation has the chance of being matched!

Thank you very much for caring, for your time and attention, and stay well. 

Yours truly

Dear Magic Hospital supporter, 

I am happy to reconnect with you, as I would like to share some exciting news.

But first a question: do you remember the last time you stood in front of a problem, or ran out of time for a deadline, or maybe you had to move house, and help was magically just around the corner? Wasn't this a relief? There are moments when we need help, to progress in our endevours, to overcome obstacles. 

You know us mostly via our programs in China. You may be less aware of the fact that we developed and managed a 3-year project called "Kids Open - getting out of the rough in France. It was a Golf project for autistic children. Since we handed it over to the autistic school, we have been pondering what we should do next in Europe. 

However, we also knew from that there are many small nonprofits who are struggling and need help. So, we thought: instead of launching our own program, why not choose to help others? In the end, helping others is why we are active in the nonprofit world. Wouldn’t you agree that makes good sense? 

This is the mission of our new initiative, the Exceleratorproject.  We see a great need and opportunity in lending a helping hand to other organisations. The project is still in its early stages, but we already have an appealing website with a cool 1-minute video clip. Please do take a minute and visit it. 

We continue of course our multiple programs in China,  one of them being the Clown Program which you so generously and kindly support.  We believe it is important to let you know what else we are doing,  so I wanted to send you this brief update. If you have any questions or suggestions,  I am delighted to hear from you. You can reach me on president@magichospital.org

Thank you for your time, your interest and steadfast loyalty in Magic Hospital!

Kindest regards 

Magda The
