AREVA Foundation, being there for hospitalized children

News brief

GROUPE / FOUNDATION

February 17, 2012

In France, one of every two children is hospitalized before the age of 15.

For these children, and for their parents, a stay in the hospital is often synonymous with anxiety, solitude and distress.

That’s why AREVA Foundation has renewed its support for the Théodor, Tête en l'air and Joue-moi de la musique associations, which operate in the pediatric departments of the Robert Debré and Necker-Enfants malades hospitals in Paris.

Whether through informational meetings, music sessions or the visit of a clown, moments of relaxation and support are offered to hospitalized children and their families.

These professionals are specially trained to work in hospitals and may also be present during treatment and care to help children bear up and get them to forget their illness for a while.
