Huggies® Team Volunteering Day at Sydney Children's Hospital
On Thursday 17th April eight of the Huggies® Team volunteered in the outpatient clinic of Sydney Children's Hospital, one of the five children's hospitals supported by Children's Hospitals. Sydney Children's Hospital is one of three tertiary centres for child health in New South Wales with their patients coming from all over NSW, interstate and overseas. The Hospital currently admits over 14,000 children each year and looks after over 200,000 children through its emergency, outpatient and outreach services for illnesses
On the morning the team helped around 30 children who were waiting for appointments with doctors or completing food allergy tests colour in, play with bubbles and do arts and crafts, giving their parents a well-rested break and helping distract the children in what could otherwise be a daunting experience.
