Due to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986, a large percentage of people in Ukraine suffer from cancer. Every second child with cancer dies. Through a series of art therapy lessons, "Balloons of goodness" workshops, making Colorful childhood wall in the primary inspection room in the children department and a festival, volunteers will bring positive emotions and hope to help these children.


We provide workshops and presentations for children, their families, friends, and medical workers for the healing effects of art, positive attitude, and color therapy.

Long-Term Impact

We will create an empowering environment for cancer patients in order to help them regain their will to live. We help them overcome cancer by encouraging happy emotions and high-self esteem through color therapy and other alternative methods.
