What is a mango moment?

A mango moment is a nice gesture

A mango moment is a health care provider who, with a small gesture or unexpected attention, creates a moment of great value for a patient. The name Mango moment comes from a program on Belgian television ' Via Annemie ' where a journalist asked someone with a lot of pain and illnesses what she would like to do again and the answer was: eating a mango. On the next visit a mango was taken, that moment of happiness spread quickly over Belgium and now also outside. A mango moment is therefore a small, unexpected, surprising action during the daily care of patients, family members and caregivers. It is not always about eating fruit, it can also be reading, buying flowers or….. whatever. It is something that the patient does not think of the disease but of ordinary life.
