Ukrainian children
with cancer need your help

The assault by Russia on Ukraine has transfixed and horrified the world since the attacks first began on February 24, 2022.

For Ukrainian children with cancer, these treacherous days have the added burden of growing uncertainty for their safety and health.

Through our local partner, the Zaporuka Foundation, Soleterre is evacuating families, providing safe housing in Kyiv, ensuring continued medical care and guaranteeing immediate support to partnering hospitals.

Please give what you can today.

Soleterre

Soleterre is a nonprofit organization that provides medical care and assistance to children affected by cancer, in Ukraine and around the world.

Soleterre is working round the clock in Ukraine to provide medical treatment, safe housing, and counseling support to children with cancer and their families in Kyiv and Lviv.

Kyiv - Київ

Lviv - Львів

Emergency plan

Through our local partner, the Zaporuka Foundation, we are:

  • Providing safe housing for children with cancer and their families in Kyiv.
  • Evacuating those able to move to safer areas of Ukraine.
  • Ensuring continued medical care, especially for children undergoing chemotherapy.
  • Guaranteeing immediate and flexible support to three partner hospitals: The Institute of Cancer in Kyiv, the Neurosurgery Center in Kyiv, and the Regional Pediatric Hospital in Lviv, so they are prepared to host people in need.

Results

Since March 1st we helped more than 70 children with cancer safely cross the border. Thanks to a medical flight corridor we were able to organize 15 different flights and move children and families from Poland to Italy. The patients were then sent to top pediatric hospitals in Pavia, Milan, Genoa, Florence, Rome.

We also guarantee flexible and immediate support to the 3 hospitals we cooperate with: the Institute of Cancer in Kyiv, the Neurosurgery Center in Kyiv, the Regional Pediatric Hospital in Lviv. We are also ready to host people in need in our facilities.

Help us reach our goal today!

Dear Donors,

Since the beginning of the war, Soleterre has consistently and tirelessly been operating to keep saving children with cancer.

Thanks to your donations, continuity in cancer treatments has been ensured for the young pediatric patients remaining in Ukraine as unable to travel. On the other hand, medical evacuations have been set for patients who can be transported to Italy via Poland.

Psychological support, from diagnosis to clinical remission and aftermath, has also been enhanced through an international team of 50 psychologists. Such disorders as anxiety and depression can occur at any time when cancer is diagnosed and it is important to take action immediately, from the onset of the disease. This type of intervention relieves fatigue and stress, and contributes towards an improved quality of life.

Thanks to you, our efforts could truly be multiplied in Ukraine itself, as Soleterre has been dealing with the regular supply of health materials and medical equipment for hospitals. In a children’s facility in Lviv, surgical treatment of wounded children is guaranteed though a team of surgeons.
