LÖSEV is a non-profit NGO, mainly aiming to provide educational and emotional support, financial assistance and health services for children who have leukemia or chronic blood disorders, in order to help them cope with a life-threatening illness. Other goals are to promote knowledge and provide instruction on an international level regarding acquired and inherited blood diseases, as well as establish and operate research institutions.
Every year in Turkey we see 1000 - 1500 new cases of children diagnosed with leukemia. Families with limited financial resources may be forced to make a difficult decision-that of choosing to support their healthy child, or their child who has leukemia. LÖSEV helps to shoulder this unexpected financial burden. However, not only does it aim to provide income for these little heroes, it also endeavours to communicate the problems of our children and their families to society in order to create awareness of leukemia.
