Our programs brings patients and volunteers together in-hospitals through creative arts activities and other opportunities for social interaction and learning. Our TelePlay program provides remote games and activities for patients via Zoom. Volunteers act as companions, or as we say, ‘Sunshine Sidekicks,’ to superhero patients battling the isolation of the hospital setting.
Last year, we reached 6,675 children and families, sending out 5,848 activity kits and Surgi Doll kits around Canada.
Last year, we reached 7,454 children and families through the engagement of more than 80 volunteers who visited patients in rooms with an activity cart and read books in kindergarten classrooms.
Last year, we reached a record 49,341 children and caretakers through in-clinic programming with our partner Bomu Hospital and its satellite clinics as well as holding special events like Youth Fun Days and monthly birthday parties.
