Fundación Aladina, www.aladina.org, is a private, non-profit organization created in 2005 with the purpose of helping children and teenagers suffering from cancer, and their families, by providing comprehensive support: material, psychological and emotional. Aladina’s work is carried out in public hospitals all over Spain.
Paco Arango, Fundación Aladina founder and president, was invited by Paul Newman to join the SeriousFun Children’s Network board. Fundación Aladina is Barretstown’s major funder in Spain, thus making it possible for Barretstown to welcome 120 children from Spain every year.
In recognition of the incredible support we receive from Fundacion Aladina and the difference it has made in the lives of so many Spanish children, Barretstown named the wing of Jim’s Place, our new building, as ‘The Aladina Centre’. This serves as both an activity area during camp and also the drop off point for children arriving at camp with their parents.
