  • Diagnosis: oncological diseases
  • Fundraising goal: enteral nutrition
Meet the child
The implementation of the "Assistance in providing enteral nutrition for children with oncological diseases" project began in 2019. The State Institution "Republican Scientific and Practical Center for Children's Oncology, Hematology and Immunology" applied to the Foundation with a request to provide assistance in paying for enteral nutrition for children undergoing complex treatment at the Сhildren's Oncology Center.

Already at admission to the hospital, most children with oncological diseases are underweight. Both the disease itself and its treatment methods cause loss of appetite, changes in taste sensitivity and smell perception. There are such side effects of treatment as dry mouth, swallowing disorders, various problems from the gastrointestinal tract. As a result, the child loses weight, becomes weaker, and the body's ability to resist infection and tolerate toxic treatment decreases.

Establish nutrition, maintain weight, replenish vitamins and trace elements, increase resistance to infectious diseases, reduce the risk of postoperative complications - these are the tasks that can be solved with the help of properly selected, easily digestible enteral nutrition. The Children's Cancer Center in Borovlyany employs a qualified nutritionist who consults primary patients and assesses the risk group for developing malnutrition, prescribing the necessary amount of therapeutic nutrition for the child.

The fund raises 60,000 Belarusian rubles, which will help provide enteral nutrition to 15-20 children every month throughout the year.

The project is carried out at the expense of donations from individuals and gratuitous sponsorship of legal entities. Every caring person can make a contribution to the recovery of our children!
