Education and Leisure in the Hospital
Disease is not the reason to stop learning. Treatment of cancer patients can last from several months to several years. It has a negative impact on children’s emotional state. Often children withdraw into themselves. And it is extremely important to prevent children from getting a sense of inferiority, it is important to motivate the child to live and learn. Continuous learning increases children’s self-esteem.
Children are happy to participate in activities with volunteers. Twice a week, at the Institute of Cancer and the Department of Neurosurgery, master classes in clay modelling, making collages and many others are held. For children hospitalized at the Western Ukrainian Specialized Children’s Medical Center Reading Club and Cinema Club are organized. The activities are organized by volunteers who work closely with the Zaporuka psychologist.
