how can we help sick kids through postcardsCollaborative Unit
After meeting them, I got some a question – Does postcard really can help sick kids?
Initially, I am just sorry about that and think they are miserable and need people’s love. But after watching this video, I am so touched. I felt so hurt when I saw the scar on Megan’s back. They and their parents totally have different lives and experience what we can imagine.
From the article Sick Children in Hospital, it describes how hospital stay affect children at different ages. After two years old, basically, children will feel stressful, fear, lonely and well be lack of connection with outside for some ‘long time living kids’. Therefore, they need more communication and accompany.
And I think postcard is a psychological help way to help children know they are loved and feel the link with the world. It may help them feel encouraged, hopeful, or even start to have a dream.
