The LR Global Kids Fund e. V. supports the charity Theodora Stiftung e. V., which sponsors professional artists, so-called “dream doctors”, who go to hospitals to entertain sick children, giving them moments of joy and happiness. This is done in close consultation with the doctors and the respective carers.
A hospital stay is often difficult to handle for children: something serious is going on in unfamiliar surroundings. In addition, they have reduced contact to their family and friends. Thanks to the cheerful, varied and playful entertainment provided by the “dream doctors”, the young patients can escape the hospital routine for a while and dive into an imaginative world of make-believe. Since the start of the pandemic, only a limited number of in-person visits have been possible, but the performers tried to make up for this by producing live videos and arranging outdoor events outside the hospital.
