The war in Ukraine has made life even more difficult for children and their families already struggling to treat life-threatening cancers. By transforming an old, abandoned hostel near Lviv into a new apartment complex, Soleterre has given a home to 30 Ukrainian families in need. But the war isn't over, and these families still need our support. Help Soleterre to provide families with a place to live free of charge, easy access to cancer treatment, a sense of community and peace of mind.
When Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, more than 100 people fled Donbass for safety. Soleterre transformed an abandoned shelter into new apartments for Ukrainian families needing direct access to the local hospital for their children's cancer treatment. However, the struggle is not over for these families. Far from home, physically ill, and traumatized, these children are fighting for their lives amidst harrowing circumstances. Help us to give them hope for peace and to return home soon.
The Neslukhiv Community has identified an old abandoned hostel which can be transformed into a new complex of 30 apartments for more than 100 people. Soleterre and its local partner Zaporuka Foundation will take care of the full renovation of the structure by covering all costs to create 30 independent apartments fully equipped with a small kitchen and bathrooms, full furnishings, an outdoor common space and playground for the kids.
Managed by the local community of Neslukhiv, Casa Soleterre represents a flexible solution for those internally displaced from the eastern regions of Lviv, in Ukraine. With an estimated 6 million individuals now displaced, long term housing solutions are tantamount. Beyond ensuring medical attentions, Soleterre works with Zaporuka Foundation to provide psycho-social support and supervision for families in residence, helping to build a foundation for a healthy, hopeful future.
