PROJECT TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF ONCOLOGICAL PATIENTS

Work area: Health

Place:  All the world

Year: Beginning of January 2018

Objective: Improve quality of life of children with cancer

Cost: 20.000€ each project 

Through the project Here to change, the aim is to get to know the oncological reality of different countries in the world. We want to know the treatments, resources and infrastructures available to different hospitals that treat childhood cancer.

The Eric Abidal Foundation visits all the children admitted, paying special attention to their personal situation. During the visits, gifts are given and Eric Abidal shares very special and emotional moments with all of them and their families.

During the visit, Eric Abidal Foundation team meets with the hospital’s medical staff to get to know the reality and analyse the possible deficiencies in infrastructures in order to contribute financially to their improvement.

This project intends to improve the quality of life of hospitalised children with cancer.

The Foundation pays a visit to all hospitalised children, paying special attention to their personal situation and providing support to their families. During the visit, children receive presents and Eric shares very special and emotional moments with the children and their families.

The visit also includes meeting with health personnel from the hospital to know about the country’s reality in paediatric cancer, treatment and resources available to cure this disease.

Moreover, in each visit, the Foundation funds an internal project from the hospital in order to improve children’s stay and provide better medical attention and treatment.
