WHAT WE DO
The issue: 5.4 million kids die every year from preventable disease such as malaria and pneumonia. PART OF THE ISSUE IS THAT the hospital remains one of kids' four biggest fears and in many areas of the world, hospitalization is hugely stigmatized because conditions are exceptionally poor. Because of this fear and stigma, many children hide their symptoms until they are critically ill and medical treatment isn't as successful as it could've been.
About the Campaign
Our vision with #Artfor195 is to work towards a world where hospitalized youth in all 195 countries have access to art supplies during their stay. Something as simple as a pack of markers and construction paper can drastically change how the hospital is perceived by kids and reduce the stigma that goes with hospitalization.
