Challenge

Children in Ghana are directed to Palliative program after a long and unsuccessful treatment, which means that by this time their parents have been left without savings and are unable to buy even diapers. The lack of basic hygiene products makes the last days, weeks, months of a child's life uncomfortable and unpleasant. Families are unable to purchase medicines and painkillers, special products for the bedridden patients care, supplies for tracheostomy and gastrostomy, medical examinations.

Solution

Thanks to your unwavering support children are provided with the necessary medications, supplies, financial and emotional support to reduce their suffering and make their life as comfortable as possible. We also keep contact with parents who lost their child to make sure that they are able to overcome the fact that their child passed away by involving psychologists to support parents in their grief.

Long-Term Impact

The aim of the Palliative care program is to provide care that improves the quality of life of terminally sick Ghanaian children and their families. Together with volunteers, Adjah Cancer Support Ghana team creates comfortable and age-specific conditions for children's in-hospital treatment, organize leisure and recreational activities. Illness should not take a happy childhood away.
