Challenge

Children in Ukraine are directed to the Palliative program after a long and unsuccessful treatment, which means that by this time their parents had been left without savings and are unable to buy even diapers. The lack of basic hygiene products makes the last few days of 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

Assistance that we provide improves the quality of lives of terminally ill children and their parents. We also keep the 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. We organize a Memorial Day where parents who lost their children can meet alike families and realize that they are not alone in their tragedy, which gives them strength to go on living.

Long-Term Impact

Unfortunately, not all of our patients can recover but each of them has the right to spend the last days/months with dignity. The palliative patients and their families need special care and assistance, which we provide. The aim of Palliative care program is to provide care that improves quality of life of terminally sick children and their families, as well as to illuminate the lack help provided to palliative children by Ukrainian society .
