Hospital dos Pequeninos- Hospital for the little ones
Museu de Imprensa Madeira in Camara De Lobos hosts an unusual event. From 17th till 21st of July this famous press museum turns into magic hospital.
Unlike common medical facilities we know this simulation of hospital is the place where children, both from local community and tourists, can learn how to prevent diseases, what are the fundamental conditions to maintain good health and peaceful frame of mind.
Attractions during the event are multiple but what keeps kids so absorbed in this educational play is the exercise to treat and dress an imaginary wound of a favourite soft toy.
The driving force behind the Hospital dos Pequeninos project is Jaime Miguel Abreu, a medical student, Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade do Porto. This enthusiastic young adult managed to call together local authorities, NGOs and other contributors from private sector to engage and make the event happen. Jamie personally wishes the happening injects passion to medical subjects among youngest. ’Who knows… maybe among some of these whiz, young people is another House M.D.’ he says.
The event is held till Friday 21st July, from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m.
Anyone interested is welcome!
