Group activity for PID patients
Taking advantage of summer holidays and before starting school, on September 8th we organized a group activity for PID patients within the "I have PID. I'm not alone" project. The group was formed with 6-8 year-old patients from the Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Immunodeficiencies Unit (UPIIP) where their siblings also participated and was led by the UPIIP team members and volunteers.
Children had to gain a "health expert card" through recreational activities where different aspects of the healthcare field was worked: what the immune system ia, what primary immunodeficiencies are, how should we take care of our health and how to become integrated in society.
The children actively participated and the activity was finalized with a breakfast and making soap bubbles.
