As well as coping with their sometimes-daily challenges, seriously ill children often have to deal with the fact that other children do not understand why they may look or act differently.
Treehouse at Number 9 is a musical ebook and resource website which focuses on a team of friends called The Genies, a group of ordinary heroes who happen to have some differences. The Genies’ stories are now also available in print editions.
We have been delivering a schools’ project together with the team at Treehouse at Number 9, delivering free sessions to year 5 and 6 pupils, using the power of story to celebrate and create understanding about differences amongst children.
We also run awareness-raising assemblies at schools to help pupils understand the effects of serious illness and how Camp Simcha can make a difference. Get in touch if you’d like us to come to your school.
If you would like support at your school for a seriously ill child or their sibling please get in touch in the strictest confidence
