Mercedes Mengíbar, Director, Vithas Xanit International Hospital

At Vithas Xanit, as well as providing excellent healthcare, we also understand a hospital’s true meaning, recognising the importance of social, economic and environmental contributions.  With this in mind, our hospital actively participates in a business network and collaborates with more than 30 NGOs.

Every year at Christmas time we support a humanitarian initiative, this year it resulted in the Mannequin Challenge in support of UNICEF. This involved participation by more than 50 professionals from Vithas Xanit.

The initial idea was to donate 1000 Euros to UNICEF if we achieved 2000 views on our YouTube channel.

We thought we would manage to achieve this and were confident of your support, but it was a big surprise to succeed and pass the challenge in just 48 hours, which made us think, what if we increase the number of views to 15,000 and donate 7,500 Euros? No sooner said than done! We threw ourselves into the task… and surpassed it yet again…!!!

At Xanit Vithas International Hospital we are deeply grateful for all your expressions of support.

Thank you to all the professionals who participated in this experience for your commitment and enthusiasm.

Thank you to everyone who has simply played the video. It is incredible that such a small, everyday gesture can raise awareness and make the world a slightly better place.

And thank you to UNICEF for giving us the opportunity to contribute to the great work they do for children in emergencies.

In case you still haven’t seen it, here is the video that made this charity challenge possible:


Thank you, thank you, thank you.
