The National Association of Parents of Children with Cancer was founded in 2003 by parents of treated children, doctors and psychologists and friends from all over Serbia with the aim of emotionally, practically and materially helping new families who are just beginning the long and uncertain struggle to cure their little ones. During eighteen years of work, the association launched numerous projects, many of which were implemented for the first time in Serbia and which significantly contributed to the improvement of the quality of childhood cancer treatment in our country: eight rehabilitation camps for cured children per year; five Parents’ Houses in Belgrade, Novi Sad and Niš; construction of a new children’s hemato-oncology department in Nis; weekly psycho-social support workshops for children and parents; education of volunteers, parents, medical staff…
NURDOR is starting 2019 with a big project with the aim of building and equipping a new Parents’ House in Belgrade, which will provide free accommodation and care for children and their families who come from all over Serbia to the capital for treatment. Given that these are often materially disadvantaged families from smaller communities, it is extremely important to provide them with support. That for any child, illness does not represent an interruption of childhood, and for parents, a loss of dignity.
