ECIMC Collaborates with Soleterre to Evacuate Sick Children from Ukraine
Every child is my child onlus, given the very serious emergency related to the war in Ukraine, has decided to collaborate with Soleterre NGO, which has been working in Ukraine for 20 years for providing medical treatment and care for children with cancer and their families. Soleterre is organising medical transport operations to evacuate children left to be treated under the Kiev bombs to Lviv, in the west of the country and now safer. Thanks to Soleterre, 18 children were evacuated from Kiev on 28 February via a medically-assisted train journey (with medical equipment from the Kiev Cancer Institute) and 57 children were brought to Italy on 31 March, taking 11 flights. They were received by IRCCS San Matteo Pavia, Istituto Tumori Milan, Spedali Civili Brescia, Ospedale del Ponte Varese, Bambino Gesù Rome, Gaslini Genoa, Meyer Florence. At the moment there are still many children with cancer to be rescued and ECIMC is supporting Soleterre in this mission.
