The magic of Christmas in the pediatric intensive care unit of the HUG

In progress

Budget : 3'200.-


Let's bring the magic of Christmas to the pediatric intensive care unit of the HUG!

For many children, Christmas is the most beautiful day of the year with the tree, the decorated house, the Christmas songs and of course the long awaited presents.

However, not all children will be able to open their presents under the tree. We know how difficult it is to spend this holiday season in the hospital. This is one of the reasons why we decided to set up the "Magic of Christmas in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit" project, in order to bring joy and to allow parents to see their children's eyes filled with wonder when they discover their gifts.
It is also essential to think of the medical staff and thank them for their dedication to all these children during the holidays.

By participating in this project, bring a smile to everyone's face and make this festive season a joyful one.
