The goal is the humanization of care, also through the involvement of the ArtinCounselling Association project partner, which will take care of welcoming and assisting minor children, introducing their own set of skills, while the woman carries out her diagnostic process. The project involves the permanent installation inside the Bollini Rosa Hospitals of Ravenna, Rimini, Forlì, Cesena and Faenza of a symbolic wire mesh that houses the rag dolls that can be adopted through a donation, with the aim of supporting the cause , to then be hung on the awareness network (Wall of the dolls). For those who wish, there is also the possibility of personalizing the donation by assigning a name to the doll or by leaving a personal phrase in the collection book hanging on the net.
