Children’s companions across Bridges of dreams

The aim of the Photo Projects ‘Dream Bridges’ is to show that every child, irrespective of his or her state of health, is first a baby, not a patient or a diagnosis, and to invite the public to participate in the establishment of a multifunctional palliative care center for children. Our goal is also to show that even though their children’s daily lives are limited by their health conditions, they are essentially equal to everyone else.

The Children’s Palliative Care Society is grateful to the courageous and responsive people in the community who have agreed to become companionship to incurably ill children, their families. Fulfill a small dream that is immense for these families! Invite the public to see the children first rather than the diagnosis or health condition!
