In April of 2016 director Olga Ivanovna started this project “I will manage everything if my mum is nearby”. It was a risk to start this project because no one knew if mothers with newborn, disabled children would get in contact with NBH and whether this offer was needed. With great commitment and anticipation, the renovation was planned and carried out.
At the end of 2017, this new department was opened and a waiting list had to be created in early 2018!
Almost two months have passed since Olga Ivanovna came back home after her radiation treatment in Kiev.
Olga Ivanovna is very happy with progress of her recovery! All the burns under her arm are now healed and she is working full time again. The poison of the chemo is leaving the body and Olga feels much better; all blood tests are within the physiological range.

Olga Ivanovna, Director of the Nikolaiev Baby House (NBH), has developed cancer and requires urgent treatment. Unfortunately in Ukraine, patients have to pay everything themselves. Public health insurance does not exist and Olga will receive only the treatment she can pay for. If she cannot pay for required medication (chemo therapy), she will not get it. We need donations! more
We heartily thank our donators and friends for their continuous support in 2014 and hope it will continue in 2015!
