The main goal of the project is to reduce the mortality in children from cancer through improved early diagnostics. According to the data provided by the Department of Health of Ukraine, when it comes to childhood cancer, Ukraine is in one of the last places in the world , and the mortality rate exceeds the rates in other countries. Most of the governmental programs and projects do not target early diagnostics; they rather try to overcome the consequences that arise from diagnosing the deceases at later stages.

On the International Children’s Day, Charitable Foundation “Ty Anhel” donated an inhaler made by Gamma to the Hematology Department of the Children’s Regional Hospital of Ivano-Frankivsk. The chief nurse Nataliya Ostapiuk said that everybody in the hospital has been dreaming about such gift for a long time. Before, if our little patients needed the inhaler, they had to go to a different department of the hospital. It was a huge inconvenience for children and their parents. Now as we have an inhaler right in our department, the children with cancer have an opportunity to use it when they need it right in their hospital rooms.

Цьогу разу, приїхавши в притулок привітати дітей з 1 червня - Міжнародним днем захисту дітей, ми застали їх на дворі, була чудова погода і діти весело проводили час на свіжому повітрі. Завдячуючи нашому партнеру ТОВ «Інтелком» ми привезли дітям іграшки, які урізноманітнять проведення часу (тенісні ракетки, настільний футбол, іграшкові кухоньки, мозаїки, конструктори та ін.). Діти були дуже зацікавлені і схвильовані в передчутті свята.
