For the well-being of sick girls and boys

The Barça Foundation and Abidal Foundation work together to promote the well-being of children and young people suffering from cancer. Among the actions launched is the Robot Pol program that allows sick children to visit the Camp Nou, certain training sessions or the Museum using a remote-controlled robot. The activity is carried out in association with the AWABOT company.

It is an immersive experience with the active participation of the child who gets to enjoy the visit and disconnect from the hospital setting.


Our commitment to the Abidal Foundation

Since 2016, the Barça Foundation, in line with its strategy for social inclusion, has been developing a partnership with the Eric Abidal Foundation.

We promote the well-being of children and young people who suffer from cancer.

In the case of the Abidal Foundation, we do this through the Robot project, one of the most emblematic actions of the Barça Foundation.

The Robot Pol project is part of the Emotional and Paediatric Wellness program.


Abidal is an example of determination in the face of adversity. Life has not been easy for him and he sets an example for all children. His life is full of values that he shares with Barça
