We are all deeply shocked by the events in Ukraine – especially the suffering it means for the Ukrainian people. Children with cancer and their families have been particularly affected: Already before the attack they were anxious about their lives. Now, their hardship has been intensified. In addition to the distress about their home country, they worry about their chances of survival due to the child’s health condition.
Medical care in Ukrainian hospitals for children with cancer has got extremely difficult, if not impossible, due to the war. The children and their families are looking for shelter from attacks in the hospitals’ basements. They are being treated by doctors and nurses in the best possible way, however, medical drug supplies are getting low or are not available at all any more, necessary equipment cannot be accessed. Tragically, important treatments and operations are not possible under these circumstances. This has dramatic effects on the children’s heath condition.
During this time of hardship, Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe has started a campaign for donations that go towards helping affected children and their families.
A few children that were transportable have been evacuated from Ukraine together with their guardian, in order to receive care in neighbouring countries or other European states. Many more are being expected. The little patients are brought to pediatric oncology clinics where they can continue treatment.
Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe supports children with cancer from Ukraine here in Germany, those who are on the run as refugees, or who are still in their home countries. The aim is to treat as many of these children in the best and seemless way possible. For this, we are dependent on your charitable donations.
Working together with our network partners nationwide and internationally, Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe can direct donations to those clinics and efforts that face the most pressing issues. The financial means are used where the need is particularly big: besides the medical care, the search for and financing of short and longer term accomodation, administrative and registration support, interpreting, transport, and psychological support, to name just a few. With your help, we can ensure that children with cancer can receive both medical and non-medical care as they transition to Germany and other European countries.
