Improvement of Sanitary Conditions
During cancer treatment and in the postoperative period strong antibiotic or aggressive chemotherapies influence a child’s immune system, so even the smallest infection can “kill” and all the doctors’ efforts to save a child from the disease will not give any results. Wall cracks, mold, old floor can be absolutely safe for us, but deadly harmful to ill children’s health.
That’s why Zaporuka Foundation raises money to renovate the departments in which we operate. We have already renovated the operating room, the patients’ rooms, the kitchen and the playroom at the Institute of Neurosurgery, the psychologist room and the physical therapy room at the National Cancer Institute and the Hematology Department at the Western Ukrainian Specialized Children’s Medical Center.
