Christmas presents for children battling cancer

Christmas_presents_for_children_battling_cancer_01

Christmas time will feel very different for children battling cancer at Oncohematology Department in Santariškės hospital this year, but we, at the DCC Charity, still wish to make Christmas magical, whilst keeping everyone safe. Kids should not have to worry if Santa will find them in the hospital or not.

This year there are 39 cancer sick children in the hospital. DCC Charity made different presents for all age groups – books for older children, table games or puzzles for 8 – 10 year olds and a variety of games for smallest kids. There are also some sweets for each child. All in all, 40 gifts were delivered to the children stuck in the Oncohematology Department.

Small project for the benefit of parents DCC Charity also have contributed to the Oncohematology Department at Santariškės hospital, 4 medical mattresses for the benefit of parents who are staying overnight and caring for their child after marrow bone transplant surgery. We hope that it will help to slightly improve parents rest in the hospital.

Charity for Kaunas Clinic Children cancer unit

After consultation with Kaunas Children’s Cancer Clinic,  DCC Charity decided to meet their request of the Kaunas hospital and donate 10 oximeters for children during the course of January 2021. Update will follow on this topic.

The Charity group of Danish Chamber of Commerce will continue the work with helping those in need in all ways possible, now and in the furure.
