Theodora Foundation


"Healing Smiles"

The goal of this project is based on comprehensively supporting children and teenagers who are hospitalized and/or who are going to undergo surgery at Hospital Universitario Insular Materno Infantil in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and comprises two programs:
1. Ward Program: This program runs in 23 hospitals. For one evening every week, the Foundation’s Smile Doctors visit hospitalized minors one-by-one in their room. They use laughter, magic and games so that children and their families can for a few moments fiend relief from their situation.
2. Surgical Support Program (AQUI): Since the year 2010, the Smile Doctors accompany children and their relatives through all the phases of surgery.
