Summary

Former Soviet Union countries often lack adequate facilities, medications, and trained oncologists to serve children with cancer. As a result, families have to travel abroad to nearby countries, such as Israel or Germany, to bring their children for treatment. As non-residents, they pay full costs of treatment, which is lengthy and very expensive. Our project will raise funds to support families facing large out-of-pocket medical expenses.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Following Soviet Union breakup, the former Soviet Union countries faced abrupt reduction in centralized health care, mass departure of highly qualified medical personnel and aging equipment. Central Asian countries were hit particularly hard. Unable to find treatment at home, families with sick children have to raise enormous amounts of money, in many cases, by emptying savings and selling property, and travel abroad for modern cancer treatment.

How will this project solve this problem?

Funds raised through this project will help us serve as many families with affected children as possible. Your donations raised through this project will help families to shoulder high costs of treatment and related expenses.

Potential Long Term Impact

Children with cancer will have better chances of receiving uninterrupted treatment. We hope that continuous and successful care will allow children to reintegrate into their communities sooner.
