Yesterday was Halloween. It is not a specific Romanian holiday, but for children with cancer, no joyous occasion is to miss.
Any moment which removes the pain, the sadness and brings joy and optimism instead is a useful tool in fighting the disease.


For several hours, children hospitalized in pediatric oncology department of  “Maria S. Curie” hospital in Bucharest, enjoyed carving fierce faces in pumpkins, designed to frighten and chase the disease that overshadows their childhood.

Besides that, they received toys, healthy sweets and magazines. It was a big joy for us to see the happy smile on their face while digging into pumpkins by hand to their elbow to remove seeds, receiving the pure, healing energy of nature.


This workshop was made ​​possible by generous and sensitive people who understand the value of our approach and the power of natural materials to bring a sense of well which fosters healing.

We thank all participants in the GreenArts workshops and classes, all those who bought artworks made by green artists and last but not least, our every weekend host , Serendipity Tea-house.
