Pallapupas are professional performers that work to make hospitals more friendly and full of life spaces thanks to their performances. They work closely with health professionals in the artistic interventions, focused on children and elderly people, trying to meet their specific needs.

The idea of the this Project is to give support to children who must undergo surgery to alleviate their situation of nervousness and stress. It is not only to be present during surgery (for local anesthesia), but also during the pre-operation times, the entry into the operating room until they are under the effects of anesthesia, and the postoperative process.

Project objectives

Making children's surgery a more human, closer and sensitive experience, decreasing stress and anxiety levels of children and families affected by it.


  • To share critical information with the nursing team to help Pallapupas act according to age, condition, mood, etc., of each child
  • To do a performance during the moments before surgery and during the separation process from parents, to make it as painless as possible
  • To give support the child throughout the operation, if the anesthesia is local
  • To do a performance  in the recovery room until the child wakes up and returns home

Who will benefit?

Thanks to the solidarity of users, an accompaniment to surgery and during induction of anesthesia will be held to 68 children in Sant Joan de Déu Althaïa Hospital of Manresa for 13 weeks.

In addition, the indirect impact of Pallapupas will touch 217 people, including relatives affected by the suffering of the minor, and health personnel, being benefited by improved working conditions.
