Erasmus MC Sophia Children's Hospital
The Royal Talens Foundation is happy to support the Erasmus MC Sophia Children’s Hospital to bring some colour into the hospital’s waiting room.
During the COVID period, the polyclinics introduced the idea of giving coloured pencils to the children in the waiting room. After using them, they are allowed to take the pencils home. The colouring sheets are printed at the hospital. The children respond very enthusiastically to colouring. A hospital visit is quite scary for most children and this way they have a nice distraction. The hospital also appreciates that the children are developing their creativity, instead of watching films on a screen. The Royal Talens Foundation was happy to support this project and donated art materials: crayons, gel pens and sketch pads, all in nice and bright colours. We hope this brings the children much joy and excitement!
The Erasmus MC Sophia Children's Hospital, located in the Netherlands, provides care to children with rare and complex disorders. Around 6,000 children are admitted annually. The government and health insurers contribute significantly to financing treatments. But additional funds are needed for optimal patient support, research into causes of diseases and new treatment methods, education and recreation. The ‘Friends of Sophia’ Foundation is committed to this through fundraising.
Earlier this year we started a beautiful collaboration between the Royal Talens Foundation and Thamon van Blokland and Edwin Otta, in Ghana. They arranged a workshop at the Visual Arts Department of the Archbishop Porter Girls' Secondary School in Takoradi, Ghana.Read more

In this blog we would like to highlight a lovely foundation in The Netherlands that we support with art materials: Stichting Kunstnest. They give children from 1 to 12 years old the opportunity to express their creativity without any added pressure. In doing so, the children improve their social, emotional and motor skills.Read more
