Being hospitalized takes a toll on a child’s spirits — isolated from family, friends, and the simple pleasures of a normal life. As a volunteer, you can help make a magic moment come to life for a child with an illness.

Magic moments take on many different forms. Delivering a toy the child has been dreaming of, preparing the child’s favorite food on his or her birthday, planning a day trip to see the child’s favorite movie, arranging a visit from a much-missed family member. The possibilities are endless! Just one little magic moment does wonders!

Mission 🙏

If you’re as fortunate as the rest of us, it’s hard to imagine the pain, stress, and loneliness of being diagnosed with a life-threatening illness and being hospitalized at a very young age. In a better world, no child would face this situation. But the problem still exists today, and Magic Hospital is making a big difference in these children’s lives.

Nobody knows fun better than Magic Hospital. With this keen insight, they’re bringing the power of laughter to hospitalized and underprivileged kids in the Beijing area.
The power of laughter is proven to enrich the mind and spirit, but also to help people through the pain and suffering of terrible illness. Furthermore, laughter is an integral part of any childhood — one which a surprising illness can take away.

While doctors and surgeons are experts of scientific medicine. The people at Magic hospital are experts of healing the soul through laughter and joy.

The “Magic Team” is working hard to spread smiles. They pay visits to the Beijing Children’s Hospital every Wednesday, and the Beijing University Hospital on a bi-monthly basis. Even after these regular visits have ended, the children are left with lifelong meaningful memories, a new sense of self-worth, and the greater sense of self-confidence.

With a good sense of humor, Magic Hospital is open to collaboration in many forms. They’re actively looking for volunteers and open to new ideas. They welcome gracious donations both small and large. Every second spent bringing a smile to a child’s face and every RMB donated to this worthy cause are put to good use — in the name of a happy childhood for all children in the world.
