ONCOLOGY

In 2022, we celebrated the 12th anniversary of the ‘Great Against Cancer’ international program for pediatric oncohematology. Started in Europe (Italy and Ukraine) the program has expanded its reach to Africa, including Ivory Coast, Uganda, Morocco, and Burkina Faso, with plans to extend further, beginning with El Salvador.

Aligned with the 2018 goals set by the World Health Organization through the ‘Global Initiative for Childhood Cancer,’ our program strives to reduce the number of affected children and increase global survival rates by up to 60%. This initiative works towards bridging the social inequality gap between the North and South of the world.

‘Great Against Cancer’ embraces an integrated approach, ensuring the rights and access to care at every stage of the disease. Our commitment extends beyond medical care, offering comprehensive support to each child and their family. This support spans from accessing quality care to enhancing social quality of life and psycho-physical well-being.

We are proud of our achievements, having assisted 2,868 children and parents worldwide in their daily battle against cancer. Through on-the-ground activities and services, our program continues to to make a meaningful impact, fostering hope and resilience.

MENTAL HEALTH

After firsthand experience on the frontlines of the Covid-19 wards at Policlinico San Matteo in Pavia, Fondazione Soleterre has established a nationwide network of psychologists and psychotherapists. The aim is to provide psychological support throughout Italy to individuals facing psychological challenges.

To ensure that psychological support is accessible to the entire population, we have decided to offer the service free of charge to the most vulnerable groups, including minors, oncology patients, Covid-19 patients, individuals with severe traumas, and those facing economic difficulties.

Simultaneously, to maintain a service that is as extensive, fair, and sustainable as possible, we have implemented a suggested minimum donation of 40 Euros per session for the rest of the population.
