Federmesser: "Social hotels will not solve the problem of sick children living near clinics"
The root of the problem is the lack of medical care at the place of residence of people, believes the founder of the Vera Foundation. We need to develop regional medicine, bringing it closer to patients, and not rent them housing in Moscow. The next complaint of the residents of the capital's high-rise buildings about the use of the neighboring apartment as a hotel for families of children with cancer forced us to return to the discussion of this topic.

The root of the problem lies in the lack of the necessary medical care at the place of residence of the people, says the founder of the Vera Foundation Nyuta Federmesser. It is necessary to develop regional medicine, bringing it closer to patients, and not rent them housing in Moscow. Another complaint by residents of the capital's high-rise buildings about the use of a neighboring apartment as a social hotel for families of children with cancer forced us to return to discussing this topic.
Federmesser does not consider the creation of social hotels for nonresident families with children with cancer in the vicinity of clinics an exhaustive solution to the problem. Today, such a boarding house is at the Dima Rogachev Center in Moscow, she recalled. They plan to adopt this experience in Ufa. According to the founder of the Vera Foundation, the capital of a constituent entity of the Federation where the republican cancer center is located, of course, it is necessary to solve the problem of housing for patients and their parents from other settlements of the region. It is normal to take people from Bashkortostan to Ufa, but to Moscow it already means that the healthcare system is not working, the ONF press service quotes the expert. The root of the problem lies in the inability to receive medical treatment at the place of residence.
“Cancer is not a rare disease. It is very bad that we are bringing children to Moscow from Arkhangelsk, from Vladivostok. The social hotel is not the final answer to this question. In our vast country, it is necessary to develop medicine, bringing it closer to patients, and not renting apartments for them on the other side of the country, tearing people out of their familiar environment and tearing them away from the family, which is needed to fight the disease more than ever. But today, unfortunately, apartments and social hotels are the only answer to the lack of assistance at the place of residence,”says Nyuta Federmesser.
As for the resonant situation, which the head of the Save Life Foundation, Yulia Romeiko, spoke about on social networks, Federmesser called the lack of sympathy and tolerance among the residents of the house where the Foundation rents apartments for families with children with cancer as a shame. “It's not that a person thinks that cancer is contagious. It is enough to explain that this is not so - he will understand. It’s scary not to be ready to help a family in such a difficult situation. I watched the story about what happened. This is obscurantism … The mother, who has heard the muck addressed to her child, gives up. She holds on with all her strength, in a strange city, without money, from such words her back bends, tears come out, and you stop believing in a good outcome of the disease - this is irreparable damage from such stupid, evil ignorant. The disease can be cured. And the feeling that they spit at you, that you are not needed,that you have been neglected kills faith."
