Împreună pentru Sănătate
Health for Romania:
Support for the families of children hospitalized far from home
Solution under development
Families of children hospitalized for very long periods, who do not live in the same city as the one in which they are treated need accommodation, and this is a cost that many of them cannot afford. Things are even more complicated when parents need help to treat their child in another country. Through Împreună pentru Sănătate we create a platform through which any parent can request support either for fundraising, finding the proper treatment centers, for legal or psychological counseling and free accommodation for those who need accommodation during treatment and do not have the financial means to rent a home. Hosts can mark the availability of accommodation on the platform (they register voluntarily and are validated), and patients and relatives can find temporary accommodation through the internet in the cities where they need it.
