Tabletochki is a charity foundation providing aid to the children with cancer and their families across the country. The Foundation provides targeted, psychological and palliative aid, and also systematically assists 17 oncology departments in Ukraine by providing them with the necessary medicines and consumables. Since 2011, more than 2.500 children have received aid from the Foundation.

Your participation is extremely important, since the funds raised during the tournament will fully cover the need for medicines and consumables for the entire intensive chemotherapy department of the National Children's Specialized Hospital "Okhmatdyt" for 4 months. These are 4 months, during which parents will be able to be with their children, they will not count the remnants of medicines and worry about where to get money for treatment. Instead, they will do some really important things – stay with their children who are recovering thanks to your help!

By supporting Tabletochki, we are not only helping children here and now, but we also joining the process of finding solution to the problem of childhood cancer in Ukraine, and draw nearer the future where no child will die at the very beginning of life.
