| This is the first of the deliveries made by FADE at the Hospital Center | The Hospital de Molina has received from the FADE Foundation (Fundación Ayuda, Desarrollo y Educación) a delivery of leisure folders for its admitted patients and their families, framed in the initiative "Your friend folder, your volunteer friend", which the Foundation FADE has launched this 2020, in the face of the emergency situation that arose as a result of Covid-19 and after the suspension of face-to-face volunteering.Under the hashtag # Siempreacompañado, this folder, intended for patients admitted to the Hospital de Molina and / or family members, contains materials prepared by the volunteers, adapted to the ages of the patients treated at the Hospital Center: word searches based on the SDGs , drawings, mandalas, comics, stretching exercises, poems, musical challenges, etc.In this way, the initiative "offers leisure resources to make hospitalization more bearable, especially hard in the current circumstances", as has been pointed out by the Secretary of the Board of FADE, Caridad Rosique.The Managing Director of the Hospital de Molina, Pedro Hernández Jiménez, applauded the initiative: “There are not enough words to thank the great work that the FADE Foundation volunteers are doing in the hospital centers.
Especially in these difficult times, marked by COVID19, in which they cannot exercise it in person.
But that does not stop their will, and they continue to develop initiatives, such as this one, so that our patients and their families notice their encouragement and their company, even from a distance, through these materials ”.
In addition, Hernández Jiménez has highlighted the bidirectional help of volunteering in hospital centers: “On the one hand, the work carried out by the volunteer contributes to increasing their commitment to society and promoting values ??of solidarity.
And on the other,Whoever receives the care of the volunteer manages to raise their self-esteem because they feel more loved, which ultimately translates into a very positive therapeutic effect for the patient.
We have been verifying this at the Hospital de Molina since we began our collaboration with FADE seven years ago ”.The Molina Hospital and the FADE Foundation have collaborated together since 2013, through the "Secunda Program: Social Volunteering", which is offered to the elderly, sick and / or dependent, users of the Hospital, as well as their families and caregivers, support tools that help them overcome with a positive and enriching sense the life experience that hospital admission entails.In its commitment to the United Nations 2030 Agenda, this collaboration means that Hospital de Molina continues to establish public-private partnerships (ODS17) to further humanize health care (ODS3) and promote solidarity (ODS16).
