Pandemic Struggles at the Hospital

These last three months have been really crazy at the hospital. The pandemic has affected the way the kids take their treatment and do their regulars visits, but that has not stopped us from making sure they enjoy their time there as much as they can.

With this playcenter, we have always provided the kids with a safe space where they can learn, play and do things that kids do, It's really important for them to take a time off to forget about needles, painful medicines, and sad times. So for us it's really important thatthey don't lose that and continue to play and learn even during the pandemic. We are grateful for the fact that none of the kids or staff in the area have tested positve to Covid-19.

We continue to donate masks, sanitizer,and everything they need to keep the clinic clean and safe. Also, the doctors and nurses received special gowns and equipment, they need them to stay safe from the virus. Also, we are doing a thing the kids love, where they get to take their favorite toy, or game home and keep it for a week. after a week, when they return to the hospital, they can trade it in for a another one. 

We can't forget that Cancer really is hard thing to go through, these kids are supposed to be going to school, having fun with their friends, pretending to be superheroes, or princesses, or austranauts. For a kid, imagination is the most important thing, and playing is their way of learning. We have to make sure that they don't lose that, plus a healthy mind is a lot more likely to surivive this disease, so for us, its important to make sure these children's minds are as healthy as posible. 

Thank you all for your support, We are facing a lot of challenges,but we stand strong and grateful with everyone!
