GIFTS AND FLOWERS. ASSISTANCE FOR CHILDREN WITH ONCOLOGICAL DISEASES IN THE REGIONAL HOSPITAL OF DNEPR. In March 2018, the International Charitable Foundation of Alexander Petrovsky Solidarity provided regular assistance and held an action in the children's hematology department of Dnipropetrovsk Regional Hospital. The regional pediatric hematology department operates on the basis of KU "Dnipropetrovsk Regional Children's Clinical Hospital", ul. Kosmicnaya 13, in the city of Dnipro since March 1, 2011. International Charitable Foundation of Alexander Petrovsky Solidarity cooperates with the hematology department and provides individual assistance to cancer patients who are here for treatment and general assistance to this institution. The ward accommodates 25 children at a time. A large number of complicated procedures and expensive drugs are required to treat these types of diseases. Many families in this difficult situation need help and support. In February, the foundation provided general assistance to the department in the way it needed to create a kind of playground where children and their parents now interact, read books and have fun - draw, play with toys and just cheer up. On March 10, children and their parents were greeted by the President of the International Charitable Foundation "Solidarity" Alexander Vladimirovich Petrovsky, Bishop of the UOC KP Dniprovsky and Kryvorizky Vladika Simeon, Vice-President of the ICF "Solidarity" Yana Yuriyevna Ivanovil, Honored Coach of Ukraine , foundation staff and friends. This time, the management of the foundation presented to the hematology department of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Hospital additional furniture for children - colored children's play tables and chairs, as well as toys and children's sets for creative work. The hematology department also purchased 25 mattresses and two plasma TVs. All this will certainly be useful for the department as a whole, and for children and their parents. It is extremely important for children who are affected by cancer to feel as comfortable as they are at home. Alexander Petrovsky also presented to the department a painting of handmade beads by the children of Ternopil Theological Sunday School of the UOC KP. From now on, she will decorate the premises of the institution and delight the Dnieper children. Bishop Simeon presented the children with the icon of Nicholas the Wonderworker, the bible and his divine blessing and wishes for a speedy recovery. All together, the guests visited each ward of the Hematology Department and together with the family of Honored Coach of Ukraine Mykola Makhinko presented beautiful women's bouquets of flowers to all women and girls (medical professionals, mothers, little representatives of the magical half of humanity). The main thing is that this day the children and their parents were brought not only gifts but also a little good mood and optimism and belief in the best. And let this good mood help them to overcome their illness. Oleksandr Petrovsky's International Solidarity Foundation once again reminds. that assistance to cancer patients of the pediatric hematology department of Dnipropetrovsk regional hospital is always needed. And this must not be forgotten.
