Budimex (Marie Curie) Hospital Playrooms

It was 2004. From the first moment when we visited the hospital, we recognised the great need for playrooms where, especially the long-term patients, could find stimulation, a happy time and, in many cases an outlet for hidden talents! Four playrooms have been set up and equipped with play and educational materials, and it is a joy to see, in the same room, seniors, working on a computer or painting a variety of pictures while the little ones learn the value of constructing Lego castles.

Last – but not least – lonely children feel the warmth of socialising. I have just returned from the playroom in the second floor. What a happy atmosphere there!
Little ones were wholly absorbed in constructing with Lego. One baby sat on a “rocking-horse” smiling as he rocked. Seniors were producing some very impressive pictures in water colours and all so happily employed that it seemed they forgot any pain or trauma from operations.

It was such a joy to witness this and thanked God for the opportunity to bring even some happiness into the lives of these little ones.

I thanked God too for the good friends from so many parts of the world who had helped to furnish these play areas!
