Fundación Aladina's
Projects


 
 

The environment where children with cancer and their families spend long periods of time has a big role in their physical and emotional state.

One of Aladina’s main lines of work is to intervene in public hospitals to improve their facilities.

Our goal is to create warm, comfortable environments with a healing and calm atmosphere, so that children and families can have, to the largest extent possible, a normal everyday life.

Special projects


 

Aladina MGU - Breast Milk Bank


Although this goes beyond the bounds of our usual work, we are extremely proud of this project. The center provides the best food in the world, human breast milk, for premature and ill babies in the Madrid area, serving as support to all the other neonatal units in Madrid.

Thanks to a donation from an anonymous donor, with the initials MGU, we were able to refurbish and extend the former milk bank in 2014, turning it into a pioneering center. The goal is to meet the needs of all hospitals in the region with a Neonatology unit.
