Children’s hospice care. Not a place for children to die, but a place for children with long-term needs to LIVE.
Children’s hospice care is a fairly new concept on this side of the Pond. But we are connected with a physician who is passionate about the need for a facility for children in Ukraine. A twenty-bed facility as a start. Or maybe two ten-bed sites.
Currently there are two children living at the National Children’s Hospital who could be living outside of this intense setting…but they still need some ongoing care. One is a little girl who has been living at the hospital for three years because she needs kidney dialysis three times a week. She is HIV+. Another child, a young boy, is living at the hospital with his mother…he is also HIV+ and in a wheelchair. He has some other issues that make the mom nervous to leave this controlled environment. A hospice setting would be ideal for them.
A hospice center. Fresh air. Away from the intensity of the hospital setting. An opportunity to learn how to live outside of a hospital or an orphanage.
Pray with us as we learn about the possibilities here in Ukraine.
And ask yourself how you might personally become involved…
