Fondazione Deutsche Bank Italia is partner of Theodora Foundation Onlus for the project "Theodora's pic-nic", a special day dedicated to children in care and their families. During the event, the children are engaged in games and activities to enjoy an unconventional day outside the hospital, while the Foundation promotes a fundraising to support its mission: to bring Giggle Doctors in hospitals, to visit those children facing a long stay in the hospital.
Giggle Doctors are specialist entertainers, highly trained to work both in the medical environment and with children with disabilities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers).
The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.
