Our Vision: a future where every child experiences a childhood full of play and laughter
Mission: to bring play and laughter to sick and underpriviledged children
A little history: We were born 2003 in the Beijing Children Hospital , one of the largest children hospital in the world. We saw the lack of support programs for sick children. Based on "Xiao ye shi yao" = "Laughter is the best medicine" we were given the green light by the hospital administration to send in the clowns to visit the hospitalized children, pioneering a clown program in the Chinese hospital.
The Clown program has been running nonstop every week for the past 14 years now. Our name " Magic Hospital" came natural, chosen for a) our desire to turn a hospital into a less frightening place for children, and b) for our mindset to appear out of the blue to help, to simply brighten a day , just like magic.
Our tagline is "Laughter is the best medicine - Be a doctor and send a smile" as we believe everybody can brighten a day. Over the years we saw more and more need for our activities and have added other programs:
Playtime: Volunteers visit the hospitalised children, and play , paint, read, sing with them, currently every Saturday morning at Huaxin hospital, a facility for children who had or about to have cardiac surgery. We are expanding this program to other locations.
Outdoorsy Day - Children living in institutions, orphanages, from migrant workers etc often lack all those fun events that we take for granted such as excursions, hopping into a swimming pool, participate in a soccer camp, visiting a zoo, watch a movie , a play in theatre, cooking classes etc. so we added this program to remedy this, it runs outside of hospitals and aims at underpriviledged and at risk children.
Abracadabra - our make a wish program for sick children, pure joy when a wish of a child gets fulfilled, for example the boy who had been hospitalised and desperately wanted to see his grandmother, we organised her visit. The program is currently on hold till we find a coordinator.
Gift giving program - we organise seasonal gift drives and spread the toys across the orphanages and hospitals.
We also have special adhoc projects lasting from 2 weeks to 12 months.
We are fully registered under French law 1901, and have a Governing Board that consists of 4 experienced and seasoned board members.
Magic Hospital is a member of the International Play Association (IPA) which promotes Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Right of the Child: every child has the right to engage in play and recreational activities, to participate in cultural life and arts. .
