A Fundação Criança promotes comprehensive healthcare for children and adolescents, primarily in the fields of clinical and surgical pediatrics and hematology-oncology. It is a private, non-profit institution that serves as the maintainer of the hospital. The ITACI hospital provides extensive support to patients and their families during treatment (hospitalization and outpatient care), offering moments of leisure, joy, warmth, increased self-esteem, through HUMANIZATION (themed parties, delivery of hygiene kits, clothes, toys, nutritional supplements, school supplies, recreation, and cultural activities).


        • AVOHC: The Association of Volunteers of the Hospital das Clínicas is better known as the “ladies in pink,” but it does not prevent men and young men from participating. AVOHC volunteers provide support and recreational activities for patients, especially in places like outpatient clinics and exam collection, with drawing tables, as well as for the companions of hospitalized patients, providing clothes and hygiene products for those who cannot afford them.
        • Youth Committee: The Youth Committee is composed of teenagers and young adults who primarily work with gamification for patients.

        • Viva e Deixe Viver Association: “Viva” is a Civil Society Organization of Public Interest (OSCIP) that trains and prepares volunteers to become storytellers in hospitals for children and teenagers in eight markets across the country. The main resources of the Viva e Deixe Viver Association currently include reading children’s books, games, the creativity, and good humor of its volunteers. Through cultural activities that stimulate the development of these children’s skills, the Association contributes to the humanization of the services intended for them, integrating sensitive conditions of communication and interaction with external reality into their daily lives.

        • Family Council: The Family Council deals directly with companions and conducts workshops such as embroidery, sustainability, and a library that lends books to both companions and staff.

With 15 years of experience, Saracura promotes humanization and the transformation of the care experience for patients, families, and employees through specialized musical interventions in hospital environments.

        • Alessandra’s Art Suitcase: The art suitcase is the newest group and was born from Alessandra’s desire to bring arts to children with cancer. Its main activity is to develop children’s creativity through “art suitcases” delivered to each child with a story or idea about the arts.

        • CARE: The Religious Assistance Committee consists of volunteers, not only priests or pastors, who work with religious approach for companions, patients, and employees seeking spiritual comfort.
