Supporting the “Family Home” project for 4 years in line with this principle, we could donate 1 million 216 thousand liras. We are aiming at building a second Family Home where the children with cancer and their families can stay free of charge during their treatment and thus supporting more children and families.

The families and children coming from outside Istanbul for their cancer treatment with lower socio-economic status can stay at the Family Home where they are offered free accommodation, food and care. Social and psychological assistance are also provided to the families and children. The patients eligible for staying at the Family Home are assigned by hospitals. So far, more than 300 families stayed at the Family Home.
