The idea of ​​creating an action between Eseba’s children and HC-UFU’s pediatric patients was, in fact, an initiative of children who were part of the Diario de Ideas project. According to Muniz, eight-year-old student Isabella advised her and her colleagues to take the letters to other sick children. “We’re working on a postage stamp in the classroom, where the kids make stamps, and they ask themselves, ‘What do you do with this stamp?'” For children who are suffering? “, The teacher said.

According to Muniz, the combination of Diario de Ideas then decided to create a real action with this idea. “For this, we have a circle of conversations, discussions, dialogues and thinking about how ideas can be implemented. At a certain point, the students begin to ask the question: ‘But how will these letters reach the children?’ So, we thought there was nothing better than a newspaper that we already had, ”said the project coordinator. “The Esbera kids brought letters with great emotion, some cried while reading, and the families were very participatory,” he added.

The Diary of Ideas, which has been in existence since 2020, now works with this front for children’s literacy education and support, now supporting the recovery of child patients. “This work demonstrates that our ideas can translate the essence of the Idea Diary, which is experienced, recorded and shared,” reflects Muniz.

It’s something that only those who come here to see the opportunity, which is not a theory,” said the doctor.
