Barça Atlètic Spreads Cheer at Vall d’Hebron Hospital

Barça Atlètic took a break for a good cause in getting ready for the second leg of the playoff semi-final for promotion to the Second Division. They will be facing Ibiza on Saturday at the Estadi Johan Cruyff, with Barça leading after a 1-2 victory in the first leg at Can Misses (Saturday, 7:30 p.m.).

A group from Rafa Márquez‘s team visited the pediatric area of the Vall d’Hebron University Hospital on Wednesday. The hospital cares for children who are hospitalized, some of whom are battling serious illnesses.

Players like Marc Casadó, Moha Moukhliss, Marc Vidal, Pelayo Fernández, Aleix Garrido, Ángel Alarcón, and Dani Rodríguez, along with Jordi Casals, president of Barça Atlètic, participated in this charitable event organized by the Fundació FC Barcelona.

The presence of Barça Atlètic players, some of whom have already played for the first team, brought excitement to the Vall d’Hebron Hospital area where the children are being treated.

Meeting the players and getting a taste of the Barça experience firsthand is like the best therapy for many of these children, especially those who are seriously ill. They were able to take photos and receive gifts from the future stars of Barça.

Even though Barça Atlètic is in the midst of the promotion playoff to the Second Division, the players took a moment to share positive energy with the children during this crucial time for the team.

This activity is carried out within the framework of the ‘Christmas all year round’ solidarity initiative of the FC Barcelona Foundation. The club and its athletes have the ability to bring joy to children who are ill and hospitalized. The Foundation organizes monthly visits to hospitals of different sports sections to support these kids and their families. This initiative is part of the Pediatric Emotional Wellbeing program of the FC Barcelona Foundation.
