A clever education tool for children with haemophilia and their families has been created through an innovative collaboration involving students from the Creative Media Department of the Munster Technological University, Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin and the Irish Haemophilia Society.
My Buddy Cormac, an informative and positive awareness animation about haemophilia, focuses on the experience and challenges faced by children with the condition when treatment in hospital is required.
The story is told from the perspective of a child and it delivers an enlightening and creative take on events.
The animation and visual guide is aimed at children aged between eight and 12. It will make learning more fun, enjoyable and help children and families develop a deeper understanding of haemophilia in language which is age appropriate, and is of great benefit in helping educate the children about their bleeding disorder.
