Challenge

Since February 24th, 2022, Kyiv is under attack! Many civilians are on the run, the authorities advise those who are remaining to immediately find a safe shelter. For children with cancer it was a tragic day: surgical interventions were suspended, and also chemotherapy sessions had to be re-scheduled. Additionally, the influx of internally displaced persons highlighting the urgent need for housing and medical assistance, especially for wounded children.

Solution

The priority now is to provide a safe shelter for children and their families, and ensure the continuity in medical treatment for cancer. Soleterre has taken immediate action to: provide a safe shelter to children with cancer and to their families in Kyiv and Neslukhiv (near Lviv) and evacuate those able to move in a safer area of Ukraine closer to the eastern border; ensure continuity in high standard medical care, especially for the children undergoing chemotherapy treatment or wounded by war.

Long-Term Impact

We also will guarantee flexible and immediate support to the 4 hospitals we cooperate with: the Institute of Cancer in Kyiv, the Neurosurgery Center in Kyiv, the Regional Pediatric Hospital in Lviv, and the Saint Nicholas Hospital in Lviv. Here, UNBROKEN KIDS is a unique place where wounded children will receive comprehensive, qualified medical treatment including reconstructive surgery, orthopedics, custom robotic prosthetics, occupational therapists, physiotherapy, and place for the families.
