International office becomes integral part

‘The start of the (newly opened) International Office was initially hectic and dynamic: in a short time in March and April we were joined by many Ukrainian families,' says Kathelijne Kraal, head of International office. 'We are now growing steadily, with some international patients. Time is again created for our strategy: to further increase the number of children for treatment in some six categories. For this we further perfect the process and application procedure.’


In total 52 children with cancer from Ukraine are being treated at the Máxima Center. 'In general they are doing well, says Kathelijne Kraal. ‘All children have been able to continue their treatment, sometimes slightly adjusted according to our findings. The families stay with a host family. From the beginning of the relief action we have received a lot of support from people inside and outside the organization and that is still the case. The good thing is that after the arrival of the Ukrainian children, the International office is now an integral part of the Máxima Center.’
