This donation will help to save life or health of a child and it will be the largest possible support for a family which undergoes the most difficult challenge – a disease of their child. A photo story is produced about each child and family, and the homepage is updated on regular basis in terms of the amount of received donations and the use of these funds for supporting each child/young person, thereby, ensuring complete transparency of donations.
The organization develops a long-term contact with families which are seeking for help, taking into consideration that solving of health problems frequently requires several months or even years (rehabilitation, medicines etc., which are not covered by state funds). Each involved family receives consultations on opportunities concerning particular specialists and rehabilitation measures.
A donation will be forwarded to a child/young person whose health problems shall be addressed most urgently.
