Marielle Kartal, anesthesiologist and one of the founders of Dolokids explains. Lawrence Julian, pediatric operating room nurse, adds: “We first intervened in the immediate environment of the patients. By decorating the masks and walls with anesthetic masks, along the corridors they walk into the building.” Simple and effective projects implemented in collaboration with other players in the medical field (Les blouses roses and Soleil rouge and Ninon Soleil) which became a technology when the structure found partners who provide it with more modern and innovative tools. Today, some patients go to the operating room in electric cars donated by EDF and the fairgrounds in Foire des Rameaux. Others sometimes have the opportunity to wait while immersed in 360 degree films produced by Odoxo. Only sometimes, because the acquisition of VR headsets and videos more suitable for young people requires sums that the association must collect. For this, volunteers come forward and benefit from their networks. This was the case of the Dauphinoi Museum, which recently opened its own rose garden Its for a Dolokids tea party that aims to raise money, or during the surprise interventions of the superheroes who come to clear hospital facades once a year.
