A Smilezone provides a safe, warm environment and an escape from long, difficult days in a hospital or treatment centre. Each zone aims at making a difference in the lives of children, one smile at a time.
Zones can be constructed in existing waiting rooms, patient care spaces, chemotherapy and treatment rooms, outdoor play zones, or original Zones created for a specific facility. These ransformations include supervised and/or unsupervised areas based on the children’s needs and ages, with a guarantee that every child and family member will leave with a smile!

Chemotherapy, treatments, hospital stays, and continuous visits can be a long and strenuous process. A physical, mental, emotional and financial burden for both a child and their family. Each Smilezone allows for a reprieve during those long and difficult days, an escape both mentally and physically for a child to look forward to from their life battle.
Each Zone aims at impacting children getting treatment, siblings, and family members in overcoming their loved one’s challenges, sharing with them the universal sign of happiness… a smile.
