The Ajax selection and technical staff visited the Emma Children’s hospital on Wednesday. It was an unforgettable afternoon for all the ill kids.
The Emma hospital is specially built for children. Ajax has opened a playground at the hospital so that the kids can forget their illness for at least a moment. The entire Ajax selection and the technical staff visited on Wednesday to open the playground. The women’s team was also there!
The players also took their time to visit all the kids at their beds. They gave gifts to the children and the kids were able to take pictures together with the Ajax players. The young boys and girls were also able to score signatures of their favourite players.
The Ajax players came together with Ajax mascot Lucky. They hugged and even laughed with the sick children. Over an hour and hundreds of signatures later John Heitinga (Ambassador of the Ajax Foundation) and Dusan Tadic opened the Playground. For a while, the children of the Emma Children’s Hospital could forget all the trouble.
