Give to… sick children
It is never nice for a child to be stuck in hospital. Researcher Pim Martens aims to create a special room in the paediatric ward of the Maastricht hospital where young patients come into contact with pets and real or virtual animals in an animal-friendly way. Pim wants to study whether this animal experience room improves the wellbeing and recovery of sick children. However, he can only do so with your support. Will you help?
Pim tells more about his project in this video.
