On 1 November, Helsana, goldpartner of the Avatar Project, gave Zurich Children's Hospital two Avatar robots. These will soon be helping two patients with their social integration during their long stays in the hospital.

Helsana supports the project Avatar since the beginning of 2016. This commitment involves us in donating Avatar robots to selected hospitals every year. On 1 November, Professor Felix Niggli, head of the oncology department of Zurich Children's Hospital was overjoyed to receive the two little robots. They are an innovative solution to the problem of how to make life a little bit more normal for young patients who are in the Children's Hospital for a long time.
