Activ Web Design is proud to support the ICOEF (UK)

ICOEF UK - The Gastronauts

The ICOEF (UK) is a charity specifically for children with Bowel and Bladder diversions. Many children have benefited from owning their own "Gastronaut" puppet, each puppet is designed to reflect the child's own diversion with its own ostomy bag, catheter, gastrostomy tubes etc.

These fun Ostomy puppets help stoma nurses assist ostomate children and parents through their life changing medical procedures.

The Gastronauts were developed by Liz and Phillip Prosser, authors of "Unwanted Baggage", a resource book for all ostomates.

These individual personalised puppets are for children who have bowel, bladder or intestinal diversions. Each puppet is designed to reflect the child's own diversion with its own ostomy bag, catheter, gastrostomy tubes etc.

The Gastronauts® are personalised by the trustees and Volunteers of the

INTERNATIONAL CHILDRENS' OSTOMY EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION UK.

 

Please take a look at their website www.icoef-uk.com and the great work they do.
