Join by November 12 our flash crowdfunding campaign and become a leading part of Making Waves, as well as a champion of one of the most inspiring initiatives in Romania: 20% of your support donated from October 22-November 12 will go towards Dăruiește Viață (The Give Life Association) for building the First Pediatric Oncology and Radiotherapy Hospital in Romania.
This is the first time in Romania that a non governmental organization is building a hospital from scratch, exclusively from donations and sponsorship.
At this time, in Romania there is no center where children with cancer can get all the services needed: intensive care, surgical procedures, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. It is important to have all these services in the same place, in order to simplify the therapeutic procedure and to ensure effective multidisciplinary treatment. Because 1 in 2 children with cancer dies in Romania, while 80% of them survive in other European countries.
Through its projects, Dăruiește Viață has brought Romania 25 years forward in the field of Hemato-Oncology and has invested for the past 6 years more than 10 million euro in Romanian hospitals, modernizing and equipping Oncology departments in particular, so that as many patients as possible can get treated at European standards, with increased chances of living.
More than 1,500 companies and over 150,000 individual donors supported the project this far, contributing more than $9,000,000 of the estimate budget of $18,500,000. The building of the hospital started this past June, and the fundraising campaign continues.
