Hospitals can be a frightening place, even for adults. For children, anxiety of unknown environments can greatly intensify fear. When children think of hospitals, they can be overwhelmed by thoughts of needles, unfamiliar noises and smells, strangers, and feeling “sick” in a place that just isn’t home. Uday Foundation is reducing these perceived fears through the Meet Your Hero Program.
In our Meer Your Hero Program, a real life hero or a celebrity visit children ward of the hospital along with the volunteers of the Uday Foundation to do a small session of Storytelling and make children happy. Some time we also organize take our children going under some kind of medical treatment to meet their Heros.
We are extremely grateful to everyone who gets involved in them and we would like to thank all friends of Uday Foundation, volunteers and everyone for their wonderful support! We cannot do our work without you!
