GVD Oracle France: Planemaking for Hospitalized Kids
By Maria Sandu on Feb 27, 2014
Oracle and Robert Debré hospital in Paris have been working together since 2007 to make a difference each and every day, by changing the lives of sick children. Robert Debré, the most important paediatric hospital in Paris, is specialized in the care of children and young mothers located in the 19th district, near underprivileged suburbs.
Every month Oracle Volunteers participate in model aircraft workshops for the hospitalized children between 3 to 12 years, aiding them to construct, paint and customize the models. The children have a wonderful time playing with them afterwards.
Last year 24 Oracle France volunteers celebrated Global Volunteer Days at the hospital.
In addition, for those who cannot move from their rooms due to their heavy pathology, Oracle France is working on a TV presentation of the workshop, to be screened at the hospital in January 2014.
