CHRISTMAS CAMPAIGN: An authentic pleasure

A few days ago we agreed to collaborate with the Foundation of Sant Joan de Déu Hospital and this gave us the opportunity to meet an amazing network of volunteers willing to give everything for others in person, it was a true honour!

 

ILERI organised a charitable collection of toys, as asked by special delivery, for the Three Wise Men. 468 toys were collected and given to Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar so that they could bring happiness to children from all over Catalonia. They gave us some clues as to where to bring the toys and one of the places they chose was the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital. Here is the letter they sent us:

 

Dear friends of ILERI,

As with every year, we are very excited about travelling around the world again to make every child happy. We have been watching them for 365 days and it was fascinating to see how they grow. As we are sure you know, we have many volunteers who help us to carry all the gifts across five continents. And in your case we thought you could help us collect some of the toys for schools, nurseries and the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital. In the case of the hospital, we know that there are many wonderful children that are expecting our visit. There are many elves that have travelled to Barcelona and they are helping the Foundation of Sant Joan de Déu Hospital and are making sure that everything is ready. Actually, there are more than 600 volunteer elves that can help you with everything. We really want to see you all, we will be there soon. Be very good and thank you very much for always being at our disposal. We believe there is also a gift for you, but we cannot say anything else.

Kind regards,

Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar

 

 

 

The Voluntary Office

During the weeks prior to the arrival of the Three Wise Men, more than 600 volunteers provide support to the Foundation of Sant Joan de Déu Hospital, ensuring that everything is ready for their arrival. Coordinated by Tina Parayre, the volunteers make certain that everything is perfect so that all children receive the gifts that the Three Wise Men have brought them from the East. And everything runs to perfection.

  

 

Help is needed throughout the whole year

The needs of Hospital patients are constant, just like the support of the volunteer unit and so help is always welcomed and always needed. Luckily, we found out that this support is in no way lacking; their energy is continuous and extremely contagious. Each action and activity they take on develops into something incredible and very beneficial to both patients and families.
