Project Description

A trip to the hospital is never a pleasant experience, especially for children. To break the often tragic daily routine for the younger patients at Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, the CFF decided to launch a fundraising campaign following a request by the two Marketers Karin and Gunnar Åsebol. The generosity of the donators was extraordinary. The money raised was used to purchase an activity table for the hospital so that the children could play table football, table tennis and pool. But that's not all: In the next few weeks, the plan is to buy a new active floor using the money raised. This toy comes with an array of fun interactive games and puzzles. The activity table and active floor not only provide the children with a way to escape everyday life but also give them a chance to work on their movement and perception skills.

We would like to thank all donors and helpers in the name of the children and their parents, and wish the little one a pleasant and diversified time in the hospital.

Project Goals

The aim of the project was to do something good for the children who have a longer stay in paediatrics wing of the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm. They should be given the opportunity to connect in a playful way and to forget their fears and worries for some time. A specially designed activity table on which they can play both table soccer, table tennis and billiards should make this possible. In addition, the children are to be given more activity options by adding a multimedia active floor. Specially adapted to the needs of small patients, it offers them the opportunity to play a wide variety of pedagogically valuable and interactive games in a limited space.
