Treatment of children with oncological, hematological and immunological diseases in the Republic of Belarus is carried out using modern treatment protocols.
This treatment is often aggressive in nature, which sometimes entails the development of severe complications that are detrimental to the child's body. Doctors have to balance between the chance of recovery and the risk of severe complications. It is necessary for the doctors to react quickly to changes in the situation related to the child's health, the use of new expensive medicines, often unregistered in the country.
All over the world, institutions specializing in the treatment of children with oncological diseases have resort to the help of charitable foundations, since no healthcare system has sufficient "flexibility" in responding to changes in approaches to the treatment of such patients and cannot fully cover all the costs and needs in pediatric hematology. Our country is no exception, therefore, we receive requests for assistance to children who need medications for vital indications. As a rule, these are the most modern drugs. They are expensive, but highly effective.
The cost of medicines is often too high. This year, the foundation provided assistance to 13 children to pay for such medicines, the cost of which for one child ranged from 2,500 to 84,000 Belarusian rubles.
In order to the foundation to be able to respond in a timely manner to requests to provide children with vital medicines, we are appealing to you with a request to help children as much as possible for you! In turn, we will provide reports on the use of your funds for each child.
