Whirlpools World

THE children’s oncology ward of Valencia’s main hospital has been building a Fallas statue as a tribute to their young patients. The work is being undertaken by volunteers from the Spanish Association against Cancer (AECC) and is intended as a gift for the children in the hospitals care. The project has received global publicity and financial support, catching the attention of Valencianos from around the world who have fond memories of the Fallas festival from their own youth.   Unusually this very special ninot will not be burnt down during the Fallas’ climax on 19 March, but will instead be donated to various places and patients after the festival.
