Support for Hospitals

The war did not put cancer on hold. Children continue to fight and hospitals need help.

Hospitals focused on treating children’s cancer are under the Foundation’s care.
We meet their urgent needs so that children do not interrupt their treatment: we provide medicines, single-use medical devices, reagents, and household and other non-medical supplies.

We are aimed at the comprehensive development of children’s oncology in Ukraine, so also offer full support to multidisciplinary teams of cancer centers by providing modern medical equipment and improving the infrastructure of hospitals.

During the full-scale war, the Foundation purchased:

• X-ray system for irradiating blood components for the Lviv Oblast Blood Service Center, thanks to which children fighting cancer and other serious illnesses will receive safe donor blood;

• Neurosurgery microscope for The Pediatric Neurosurgery Department of St. Nicholas Hospital in Lviv, which treats children with nervous system tumors and injuries sustained during hostilities. It allows doctors to operate on blood vessels and conduct additional examinations of the tumor directly during surgery;

• Eight monitors to track patients’ vitals for The Pediatric Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplantation Clinic of the Western Ukrainian Specialized Children’s Medical Center. This equipment guarantees timely assistance to patients in critical condition.

• A new real-time PCR test system for the Okhmatdyt Children’s Hospital laboratory.
The device can detect several infectious agents in a single tube in as little as 3–4 hours.

Moreover, during the full-scale war:

• The room for a computed tomography device at the Radiology Center of Okhmatdyt was renovated. The device itself was bought with money from the state budget, but it cannot be launched without appropriate conditions. There are strict requirements for such premises.

• The renovation of the outpatient area at the  Clinic of Pediatric Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant Clinic of the Western Ukrainian Specialized Children’s Medical Center in Lviv has been finished.  This broad-scale project is intended to reduce the waiting time for medical appointments, alleviate patient crowding, and ease the medical staff workload.

• The construction of two bone marrow transplant rooms at the Pediatric Oncology Department of the Cherkasy Oblast Oncology Center was finished. These rooms with special sterile conditions provide a safe environment for children before, during, and long after bone marrow transplantation. In February 2023, these aseptic box units were finally opened;

• The reconstruction of the outpatient care facility has started at the Clinic of Pediatric Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplantation of the Western Ukrainian Specialized Children’s Medical Center. The renovated structure of the facility will improve the organization of patient appointments, reduce waiting time for a doctor’s appointment (three to four patients can be consulted simultaneously), and reduce the workload of medical staff.

Furthermore, we renovate children’s patient rooms, operating and procedure rooms, along with other facility premises. All of these activities are carried out to make children, their parents, and doctors feel comfortable and stay focused on a quick recovery.
