BCN PID Foundation at Mestres Montaña school

May 2018

 

Within the framework of the project "The PID in schools", the foundation team had the opportunity to carry out an activity with the students of 6th grade of the Escola Mestres Montaña from Granollers (Ceip Mestres Montaña) ​​where a patient with a primary immunodeficiency (PID) is studying.

The objective was to bring the reality of Aya and many other children affected by PID to the school context and to allow his friends and colleagues to get closer with his daily fight against his chronic illness.

The activity consisted of 4 work spaces where different aspects of the health field were represented. In the different activities they learned basic concepts of the immune system, they empathized with the reality of the children with PID and became aware of how and when to maintain healthy.

This kind of activities approach children to the daily life of patients with PID and contributes to improving their care, including a health perspective at a social and community level.
