The Chelyabinsk movement "Iskorka Fund", together with the Vladimir Potanin Foundation, are organizing the "Invisible Key" online school for parents whose children have hematological cancer.
According to the head of "Iskorka" Tatiana Sachko, because of the pandemic, the fund cannot get into the oncohematological department, so the opportunity to help children and parents is severely limited. Therefore, the idea of an online space for educating and supporting parents was born.
The Vladimir Potanin Foundation allocated money to buy a video camera. The Iskorka staff will publish video consultations with child psychologists who have experience of dealing with seriously ill children. The first lessons will tell you how to cope with prolonged isolation in the hospital, how to prepare your child for surgery.
“The first classes are designed in such a way that they will be useful not only to families with children with cancer, but also to all parents who have encountered any serious illness in a child,” said Olga Erakhtina, a psychologist and participant of the School for Parents.
In addition to lessons with psychologists, classes with oncologists and lawyers will be held. Also within the framework of the project "Sparkle" will conduct training sessions for children to make up for missed lessons at school. The issues will be published in the public domain from September 14, 2020 to June 1, 2021, all information about them will be posted on the fund's website.
