Bringing joy to little hearts: the inspiring initiatives of JoyRon Foundation

For those of you who are not familiar with the JoyRon Foundation, they are a wonderful feel good charity aimed towards Helping Children in Need in the Balearic Islands to bring them joy, comfort and essential support. 

Project: The JoyRon Children’s Cinema. 

The Children’s Palliative Care unit located within Son Espases, accommodates children who are in a condition that requires them to stay long-term. Many of them are suffering from a life-threatening illness and are under palliative care. JoyRon identified the possibility for a fully equipped small Cinema. The cinema shows films for the children in the hospital, whilst they are receiving their medical treatment. Within the limitations of the children’s situation, abilities and the environment of the hospital, the cinema has proven to be an effective way to improve the quality of life of these young patients.  

The children´s cinema has a capacity for up to twenty children, who are seated on tiered seating with bright coloured cushions. For the very small children there are fun mobile seats. Children confined to wheelchairs and/or with intravenous stands also have access to the cinema. The films are shown on a regular basis free of charge.

Project: The JoyRon Psychmotricity Room

JoyRon financed, constructed and installed all the required equipment within a Children’s Home and Protection Centre in Palma. The facility provides for free movement and spontaneous play, creativity, plus security and trust. Thereby assisting a child who has lived in a traumatised environment, to openly express their emotions, moods and concerns to a therapist, who can assist the child to overcome the traumatic aspects of the life they have experienced. 

JoyRon has achieved these two and many other initiatives with the help of private and corporate donations, (for which Spanish tax deductible donation certificates are available). These initiatives, of course, also require the support and enthusiasm of their volunteers assisting in their fundraising events and projects. JoyRon seeks additional volunteers.

The latest JoyRon fund raising event held, in collaboration with E-Touch Systems on 15th October was their Family Fun Day & Go-Karting at the race track in Magaluf. Several people from the yachting community were present to race against each other in teams. While these adults were horsing around on the track, face painted kids were jumping up and down on a bouncy castle and challenging each other to stay on top of the mechanical bull. The result of all this fun, was the event raised some 15.000€ plus. This will help JoyRon achieve more projects to help the Children in Need in the future.
