Summary

Childhood cancer is not a death sentence. In Ukraine, 1000 kids are diagnosed with cancer every year. 7000 kids are hospitalized annually, including new patients, those continuing treatment, and those experiencing a recurrence. Their chances for survival depend on the availability of medication, facilities, and emotional support. Zaporuka's project provides these kids with necessary treatment (medicines, rehabilitation, and equipment), and relief (psychological support and leisure activities).

Challenge

The healthcare system in Ukraine has always been underfunded, due to economic crises and corruption. With the added strain of Russian military intervention and economic hardships, the healthcare sector has faced significant budget cuts. As a result, in other countries, over 70% of children with certain diagnoses recover, while in Ukraine, the mortality statistics are much higher. Some of the reasons for this include the absence of necessary medicines and facilities, as well as delayed treatment.

Solution

Zaporuka's goal is to provide essential medication and equipment that may not be available at hospitals to children affected by cancer in Ukraine, increasing their chances of survival. Additionally, Zaporuka provides vital resources to help children overcome the disease, including psychological support, physical rehabilitation, and leisure activities to improve their quality of life.

Long-Term Impact

Zaporuka's ultimate goal is to raise the general level of medical assistance for children in Ukraine to meet the highest international standards, thereby increasing their chances of long-term survival and improving their quality of life after recovering from the disease.
