Juegaterapia nació como nacen las buenas ideas. Mónica le da una Play que ya no usaba a un niño enfermo de cáncer. El niño sonríe durante horas y es capaz de contagiarnos su ilusión a todos. A partir de ahí la bola de nieve crece y crece sin parar y la "buena acción del día" de Mónica se convierte en un gran proyecto cargado de ilusión. Así nace también la idea que sostiene todo, algo muy simple que todos podemos imaginarnos y que alguien pone por escrito...

"La quimio jugando se pasa volando"
Qué hacemos

Recogemos todo tipo de consolas que funcionen perfectamente y estén en buen estado. También videojuegos para menores de 18 años.

Después, lo donamos todo a hospitales con zona de oncología infantil para hacer que el tiempo de espera y de quimioterapia pase lo más ráido posible.

Cada consola lleva una pegatina con los datos de su donante para que cuando le llegue al niño pueda agradecérselo con una llamada, un mensaje, un dibujo...

Y al final, los niños tendrán que seguir luchando contra el "bichito", como ellos lo llaman, pero si puede ser con una sonrisa en los labios, todo irá mejor.

First All-Woman Team at Indy 500

Katherine Legge became the first driver to bring an all-woman team to the Indy 500 on Sunday. Legge, a rookie from England, is the ninth female racer to qualify for the Indy 500. Her all-woman crew made headlines for being the first in the history of the Indy 500.

Before the race, Legge told CNN that she wants to inspire girls to pursue their dreams, saying she hopes to inspire girls "to follow what they want to be. And they have to pursue that with 110 percent knowledge that they can get there if they really, really want to." During the race, she wore the Girl Scouts logo on her helmet. She said she was racing as a representative for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Two other women qualified for the Indy 500 this year - Simona de Silvestro of Switzerland and Ana Beatriz of Brazil.

Lubanga was condemned for using child as soldiers, but the sexual slavery of girls soldiers charge was put aside in order to make the trial faster. This is totally unfair and the girls soldiers need a vindication. Rape is a crime and Lubanga has to pay fo

Hamlin Fistula® Australia Limited is the authorised Australian representative of the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia. It administers the Hamlin Fistula® Relief and Aid Fund which is a registered Australian charity with tax deductible status. The Hamlin Fistula® Relief and Aid Fund is the only charity in Australia solely dedicated to supporting the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital.

The Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital was founded by Dr Catherine Hamlin AC and her late husband, Dr Reg Hamlin OBE, and is dedicated to the treatment and care of women who suffer horrendous childbirth injuries, known as obstetric fistula.

Obstetric fistula is caused by prolonged obstructed labour when a woman will spend days in labour without any medical help or pain relief. If she survives this ordeal she will give birth to a still born child and her internal injuries will cause her to be incontinent of urine and sometimes bowel contents as well.

She will spend the rest of her life a destitute outcast unless she can get to the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital or one of its outreach centres.

The surgical technique developed by the Hamlins successfully cures 93% of obstetric fistula cases. The Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital has established a purpose–built village called Desta Mender ("Village of Joy") to provide long term care for women whose childbirth injuries are so severe that they cannot return to live a normal Ethiopian village life. At Desta Mender the women are trained in new skills so that eventually they can re–enter Ethiopian society as "citizens of the world" once again.

The Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital is committed to the UN Millennium Development Goals and particularly those directed towards improving maternal health, reducing infant mortality and empowering women. It has established the Hamlin College of Midwives to train young Ethiopian women as midwives to work in the Ethiopian countryside amongst women who presently have little or no access to medical help during their pregnancy and labour. The mission of the Hamlin College of Midwives is to have a midwife in every Ethiopian village.

The Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital relies entirely on donations from overseas to fund its vital work of improving maternal health, reducing infant mortality and empowering women. Australian tax deductible donations can be made through this website to the Hamlin Fistula Relief® and Aid Fund.

Running a rescue is a scary and stressful business. If people stop donating, the shelter closes. This shelter is particularly effected by donations because they don't make money from adoptions as most shelters do. They take in the sick and disabled.
