Miss Universe Ecuador 2017 Works with Children's Hospitals

Since July Daniela Cepeda and the Miss Ecuador Organization are working together on a project to stimulate the hospitalized children's learning capacity.

To meet this goal, Daniela met with the medical directors of hospitals, by focusing on children aged 4 to 10 years old, who are patients in the main hospitals of the city of Guayaquil, and in the future, we would like to expand this project to other hospitals from other provinces of the country.

Miss Universe Ecuador Organization asked the support from the Wilson Galarza Foundation in the acquisition of teaching materials and, together with the support of volunteers, we optimized the learning capacity of children who are interned at the hospitals without any recreational options.

 

With the help of volunteers, it has been possible to encourage children to play and reinforce their abilities taking into account that they have stayed in bed several days without performing activities that favor their development.

Previously, they carried out this activity with the kids that are in the Francisco Ycaza Bustamante Children's Hospital in Guayaquil and we are currently encouraging the population of the province of Los Ríos to participate in a 6K running competition in the city of Babahoyo with the purpose to raise funds and allocate the children of the Martín Ycaza Hospital.
