Mickey and Minnie Visit Children at La Timone Hospital in Marseille, France

Earlier this month, Mickey and Minnie Mouse visited the pediatric unit of La Timone Hospital in Marseille, delivering joy where it’s needed most to children facing serious illnesses. 


“Mickey and Minnie’s visit was a real breath of fresh air during a particularly difficult and emotionally charged period in the unit,” explained Dr. Jérémie Suard, a nurse anesthetist in the pediatric intensive care unit at La Timone. “It was good for the children, the families and the staff.


Disneyland Paris teams have been visiting La Timone regularly since 1997 and since 1991, more than 40,000 children have been visited by our beloved characters and Disney VoluntEARS in hospitals in France and neighboring countries. Delivering joy, happiness and wishes to children in need is one of our major philanthropic commitments at Disneyland Paris and across the company.
