Summary

Children affected by cancer are subjected to long and exhausting treatments for several months, often far away from home, school, friends. This means a big burden for families, both for their finance and for their mental health. Help Soleterre Foundation host children with cancer and their families in the "Great Against Cancer Family Homes", close to hospitals. Here they can find a comfortable place to stay for free along with their parents and siblings while going under cancer treatment.

Challenge

When put in front of a cancer diagnosis, parents have to consider not only the medical treatment but also the logistics. That's why cancer affects not only the body, but also the mind: parents want to stay close to their child to give them emotional support but their worries are too many. In places like Uganda or Ivory Coast, but also in Ukraine or in Taranto, Italy, parents end up facing unexpected expenses for travel, accomodation, and food.

Solution

The Great Against Cancer Family Homes are managed by Soleterre in 6 countries including Uganda, Ivory Coast, Morocco, Burkina Faso, Ukraine and Italy, and they offer families large, comfortable, free of charge spaces where families can stay for all the time they need during cancer treatment. A safe place to avoid the burden of shifts to the hospital, accommodation and food costs and to help keeping the family together when it matters most.

Long-Term Impact

It's been demonstrated that taking care of the "environment" of children affected by cancer improves the survival rates and the quality of life during treatment, as it helps keeping hope and building their future after cancer. In addition, offering a safe place to stay discourages dropout rates and allows families to focus on the process of treatment.
