Our partnership with the Hospital 12 de Octubre in Madrid keeps growing! Recently, we’ve signed an agreement that will allow us to expand our volunteer program at this great center. Every Wednesday morning, Aladina´s volunteers are there to make sure that the children, their parents, and their family members get a break from medicine and treatments.
In addition, we have done numerous projects:
- Mother´s Milk Bank Aladina-MGU: Started in June 2014, the object of this partnership is to provide all of the hospitals in the Madrid area with neonatal units.If you want to know more about this project, click HERE.
- Lactation Room: We opened this room to make it easier for mother´s and their babies to have a suitable place in the hospital. This room is furnished with comfortable chairs, bathrooms, and changing facilities.
- We decorated the Pediatric Oncohematology unit and renovated the waiting room with new furniture, a TV, and a mural.
- We have also decorated the hallways and renovated the nurses´rest area. In the patients´rooms we have added wardrobes, sofa beds for parents, and side table for patient use.
