23 of July is National Children's day, The history of the children's day itself begins with the vision of the second President of Indonesia (Suharto). He saw that the children are an asset of the country's progress, so since 1984, it has been designated as National Children's Day.

Most children will celebrate it with various physical activities such as playing together or participating in various competitions. Different conditions for sick children, who need special care at the hospital. A happy heart, enthusiasm to recover soon, is one of the drivers of the recovery of patient health, including children patients.

The spirit to share the joy and enthusiasm to recover is what brought the Terminal Petikemas Surabaya (TPS) to visit pediatric patients in several hospitals in Surabaya, yesterday (23/7): RS PHC Surabaya, RS Al-Irsyad, RS Siloam Surabaya, RS Darmo Surabaya, RSI A. Yani, RS William Booth Surabaya, and several foundations like Yayasan Peduli Kanker Anak Indonesia (YPKAI) and Cleft Care Indonesia.

In the midst of the tight schedule of care and recovery of their health, TPS was present to provide support and joy. Together with hospital staff, children are invited to maintain personal hygiene. At the end of the visit, a baby shark doll, a TPS balloon and a goodie bag filled with healthy snacks were given.

TPS volunteers, who wore some marine character costumes such as Popeye, Peter Pan and pirates, managed to enliven the atmosphere and happy smiles on the faces of the children who were being treated at the hospital and at the visited foundation. Their laughter broke out, when the volunteers started greeting, not infrequently those who scrambled to take pictures with the characters, some were shy and sat on his mother's lap.

Erika A. Palupi, Legal & Commercial Manager TPS said that this event was a form of support from TPS Management on the commemoration of this year's National Children's Day, especially children who were receiving medical care, so that they could recover as soon as possible. “At least with our presence in the midst of them can give happiness and enthusiasm to get well soon” said Erika.

In addition to providing motivation, attention and love are the main things, because a happy heart is a strength in itself, especially for physical conditions are not healthy.
