Challenge

In Colombia, childhood cancer is the second cause of death in children. The health system poses many administrative barriers to access comprehensive care promptly and these children belong to poor and vulnerable families with many economic limitations. Additionally, the COVID19 pandemic has made things more difficult. SANARs challenge is to support these children and their families so that they can adhere to the treatment and overcome the disease.

Solution

The SANAR NINOS CON CANCER Foundation will give psychological assistance and education, occupational therapy such as reading and art workshops, playful encounters, and celebration of special dates, as well as economic aid for transportation, food, and accommodation. It will also contribute with medicines, monitoring, hygiene kits, and funeral expenses for families who require it due to their condition of poverty and vulnerability. We will also advise them on their health rights.

Long-Term Impact

The child and family assume the healing path with greater commitment, dedication, and empowerment, and economic and social barriers will be overcome to achieve the best possible result. Through various therapeutic activities, the disease will be redefined: "Cancer is limited, it does not erode love, it does not destroy hope, it does not undermine faith, it does not compromise peace, it does not erase memories, it does not diminish courage, nor does it invade the soul, or silence the spirit.
