Poniente University Hospital will resume its "Spring Week" organized by the Comprehensive Care Commission for Hospitalized Children. It is aimed at Pediatric patients and takes place from Monday through Sunday. There are recreational and educational activities that promote the care of the oceans and seas.
Poniente University Hospital has launched Spring Week to ease the transition through the hospital for children admitted or treated elsewhere, such as Outpatient Consultations or Emergencies. It promotes values like the conservation of the environment and respect for other cultures, as well as encouraging reading.
It is also fitting that the current edition of the "Spring Week" coincides with the International Day of the Oceans which was observed yesterday, June 8. This is why we want raise awareness about the need to care for the oceans. They are becoming increasingly polluted by plastics and the proliferation of plastics.
There are many activities that combine magic and performance to bring joy to children, like the one performed by the Doctor Sonrisas of Theodora Foundation. They toured the center visiting various points, encouraging those who were admitted, had to have surgery, or had an appointment for consultations.
The Payasa Molagoma, for her part, brought joy to the center Tuesday with workshops on balloon twisting, creation of marine animals and yesterday, Mercedes Ortiz (teacher of the Hospital Classroom, head of Karunavirus Educational Project) read the story 'The Dolphin Marcos and led a workshop on making marine boxes.
Today's event will promote reading, which is a common companion for many hours spent in hospital with children. There will be books distributed by Atresmedia Foundation. Tomorrow morning will feature a storytelling session with the play "Are you afraid?" The afternoon will feature storytelling and the workshop 'El Tesoro de Turaniana,' by Poppins.
