About us

A strong partnership

This project represents a triumph of public-private collaboration. Three foundations– Fundación A. Bosch, Fundación Aladina, and Small Foundation– have placed their resources at the service of the Hospital Vall d'Hebron Hospital, whose pediatric oncology unit is a reference institution in Catalonia for the treatment of children and teenagers with cancer. The construction of the new state-of-the-art pediatric oncology area will provide the space both children and families and staff deserve.

Fundación A. Bosch

The A. Bosch Foundation was created in 2004 by the Noel food group with the aim of promoting the search for medical, biomedical, and surgical solutions to childhood diseases and, in general, to contribute to the well-being of people throughout their lives.

The Foundation aims to be a reference entity in supporting research and direct intervention, working closely with medical and scientific teams, and thus ensuring that the advances obtained can be rapidly applied to the patient. The entity is named after one of Noel's main promoters, Albert Bosch.

Fundación Small

The Small Foundation, which was created in December 2007 after a family experience of the founders. The foundation focuses its efforts on raising funds from private sources and collaborating closely with hospitals to help improve as much as possible for children's oncology services in two lines: care, seeking to improve any aspect related to the medical treatment received by children, and family support, to make hospital stays more bearable for sick children and their families and have a direct and positive impact on their hospital experience.

In its 14 years of life, Small has contributed with small projects of great impact in improving the lives of children with cancer, being its largest project to date the construction of the new out-patient Hospital of the Children's Oncology Service (Parc d' Atencións) of the Vall d' Hebron Hospital in Barcelona.
