Description of activities
  • Soleterre has been present and intervenes in Ukraine since 2003 with health, social and educational development programs aimed in particular at the treatment of children with cancer.

    Since the outbreak of the war, Soleterre established a permanent mission in Poland, based in Rzeszow, carrying out an intervention that simultaneously involves the three countries affected by the emergency (Ukraine, Poland and Italy) to ensure the continuity of care for pediatric cancer patients, both those unable to travel and remained to be treated in Ukraine and those brought to Italy (through Poland) thanks to a medical evacuation activity.

    In addition, from the very first days, Soleterre decided to extend its medical intervention to support the most fragile Ukrainian population: a psychological support system was established in the three countries, in order to provide a first emotional relief and, when necessary, continue with further listening sessions. This support is available in various ways: face-to-face in the refugee centers, at home, in hospitals, in a mobile way or via telephone line.
