Toufoula’s Dream Rooms by Lebanese Designers


Toufoula is a Lebanese non-governmental organization which was founded in 2006 by a group of concerned volunteers sharing the same goal: drawing a smile on the faces of young children suffering from cancer and blood diseases.

The Dream Rooms Project aims at making the children’s stay at the hospital as pleasant as possible, and changing their perspective of hospitals. The rooms are painted with happy and lively colors and are equipped with toys, sources of entertainment and communication opportunities. The purpose is to spread a cozy and warm atmosphere similar to home, where the children can dream instead of worry. Because distraction is the best therapy and stress reliever, this is a space for children to live their fantasies and dream of a better tomorrow.
