Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare systems across the world are under extreme pressure. In alliance with the CASACOR Bolivia, Pinturas Coral supported the “United against COVID-19 and cancer” initiative by adding color to the new Emergency Dome of the Oncological Hospital of Santa Cruz de la Sierra. By donating more than 8.500 liters of paint, they turned the Dome into a welcoming space that comforts the spirit of the patients and healthcare workers.
Creativity sparked by solidarity and kindness
To make the new Emergency Dome a perfect place for the recovery of cancer patients with COVID-19, Let’s Colour and CASACOR Bolivia joined forces.
CASACOR’s professionals, coordinated by Quito Velasco, designed the exterior of the building including the oratory, square, marquee, facade, and mural. The aim was to create a space that will have a healing effect on every level. So, thanks to the expertise and creativity of 35 architects and landscapers, the Dome became a place that radiates hope, optimism, and enhances the overall well-being.
Along with the Let’s Colour and CASACOR Bolivia, more than 81 companies supported the building of the new Emergency Dome and donated necessary resources. Thanks to this joint effort, “United against COVID-19 and cancer” raised $336,000 in medical equipment, hospital supplies, furniture, and construction material.
Bringing hope and joy through art to the Emergency Dome
To make the newly built hospital facility a place of hope and colorful recovery, two artists (and sisters) Ariela and Maria Pia Hossen created a mural.
The inspiration for this vivid artwork was nature in its purest form. The green color, which brings peace and serenity, is a dominant one and is intended to have a relaxing effect on those who observe the mural. In a recovery facility such as the Emergency Dome, a calming environment is necessary for optimal mental and physical well-being.
The mural came from a place of hope and, as such, it made the Dome become an uplifting and healing environment for patients, their families, and health workers.
Together against all odds
On September 29, the Dome of the Oncological Hospital was officially handed over to the Santa Cruz people. It was an act full of emotions and words dedicated to the legionaries and their work that symbolizes pure selflessness and inspires people all over the world.
This journey inspired by solidarity makes us even more motivated to continue supporting the creation of a more colorful future for everyone.
