SoftServe Сharity Fund “Open Eyes” is opening a Positive Room in Lviv


Сharity Fund “Open Eyes” founded by IT company SoftServe, has announced its initiative to equip Positive Room 3.0 in the Lviv City Clinical Children's Hospital, departments of Neurosurgery and neurology 4, P. Orlyk Street, Lviv.

The Positive Room is a bright, comfortable and functional space for children undergoing long-term treatment in hospitals. The 4 areas in the room: creative, playground, reading and educational with specially selected children's toys and educational materials prevent children from staying one to one with the disease and feeling isolated.

What is special about the treatment of such patients is a prolonged hospital stay, in some cases up to 2-3 months. At this time, most children go through a high psycho-emotional load, which negatively affects their recovery, leads to falling behind at school. The “Positive Room” will be staffed with a psychologist, rehabilitation therapist and teachers, also children will be able to spend time with their parents. This will significantly reduce stress levels and facilitate faster recovery of patients,” said Dmytro Kvit, Chief Doctor of Lviv City Children's Clinical Hospital.

 “Together with our partners, we have designed a comfortable space for children to recover faster, catch up with the school program and stay positive during this challenging time for them. We tried to take into account all these factors while planning Positive Room 3.0, - comments Victoriia Mishchuk, Fundraising Manager of  CF “Open Eyes”. – Over the last 2 years, we have gained valuable experience in creating such spaces for children in hospitals, so we are convinced that the new one, Lviv “Positive Room” will bring substantial benefits for children, their parents, and the hospital staff as well.”

The SoftServe's Сharity Fund “Open Eyes” Positive Room project was launched in October 2017. The first Positive Room the Fund equipped was at the Wroclaw Children's Clinic for Endocrinology and Diabetes (Poland) in cooperation with and partners. The idea to create such a room came from the SoftServe development center in Wroclaw. The SoftServe employees addressed the fund, willing to help with this request. After successful project implementation, the Fund decided to implement it in Ukraine. Since then 4 such rooms have been constructed.

Сharity Fund “Open Eyes” encourages partners to cooperate for a good cause. On the Fund's website, you can contribute to a certain project and facilitate long-term hospital stay for children.
