This project guarantees free accommodation for families with children affected by cancer and other severe diagnoses during times of war. The construction of the New Dacha Center will provide 15 families with free accommodation for extended treatment periods. Currently, there are no similar centers in Ukraine. Cancer therapy can take several months, and families with ill children require a secure place to live during this period to properly care for and support their children.
Many children with cancer and other serious diseases have lost their homes because of the ongoing war. They cannot stay in refugee shelters due to their compromised immune systems. Being without a home for an extended treatment period is also psychologically hard, harming treatment outcomes and family relationships. Children who spend much time in hospitals and undergo painful treatments, are happy to have a safe place to call their own, where they can snuggle with their mothers.
During the war, Zaporuka provides free accommodation for families with children undergoing treatment, renting houses and apartments for them. The New Dacha, currently under construction, will have 15 specially designed rooms available for these families to live together, including parents, children, and often siblings. Each family will have their own room, providing a home away from home for them.
Zaporuka Foundation provides free accommodation for at least 100 families annually, creating a comfortable and familiar atmosphere for sick children and keeping families together, which contributes to their recovery. Separation in the hospital can lead to strained relationships or even divorce for parents, while siblings may feel neglected without sufficient attention from their parents.
