The National Hospital of Pediatrics specializes in the treatment of children, and receives patients from different provinces across Vietnam. The hospital consists of 22 departments, with the number of permanent patients under treatment numbering up to 1000-1200, of ages ranging from infancy to nearly 17 years old. The majority of them are afflicted with difficult to cure ailments that require treatment by specialists such as hematologists and nephrologists. Most patients come from low-income families with parents working in agriculture. Life for these families is often very difficult.

During the treatment period, patients do not have the opportunity to participate in common leisure activities, which adds to the stress of staying a long time in hospital. These children are in desperate need of fun activities to take their minds away from their daily worries. SJ Vietnam needs volunteers to organize games and collective activities for the children (e.g: singing, drawing, magic shows, etc).Volunteers can prepare a performance with the children every month. They can also help the Vietnamese volunteers to build playrooms and a library.
