Felicity Project

Who participates? 
The Felicity Project started in April 2001, offering five days of pure fun and joy to children and teenagers in Brazil from a less privileged background who suffer from cancer.

What is the goal of the Project?
To restore self-esteem through happiness and fun and show these children that they can smile again, their cancer can be healed, they can play, eat well, and receive love from people who are willing to love them, but the most important thing is motivating the children to continue fighting the disease.

How does the Project work?
During eleven months a year, early Monday morning we pickup a group of these children. Each child brings two adults and a younger brother or sister totaling almost fifty people. Until Friday afternoon, they are accommodated in hotels (even five stars), visit our wonderful camp, amusement parks, cinemas, beaches, museums, etc. accompanied by professionals and duly trained volunteers.

 In the evening, after a day filled with surprises and fun, they are visited by volunteers who come to the hotels to deliver an art set, books, toys, etc. and make them more comfortable and also happier after receiving this special “good night”.

 On Friday, activities take place at the Project’s headquarters, including a performance by two clowns who act out the highlights of the week with a lot of humor. The children receive loads of gifts plus a photo album of the trips and go back to treatment with much more stamina and the will to survive.

But the Project goes way beyond one week of happiness…
