As The Hope Foundation for Children with Cancer, our ‘Color Your Life With Art’ project received funding as part of the 2016 Funding Support for Children and Teenagers Program of the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Development and Istanbul Development Agency. Within the project, it is aimed that activities, which include art therapy methods and are prepared under an art therapist’s supervision, are done with children with cancer face-to-face.
Throughout the project it is aimed that two expert psychologists do psychotherapy with children, who are in the hospital. In the Family Home and the seven hospitals we cooperate with, our 50 volunteers will work with 350 children between the ages of 3-17, who are continuing their treatments. Throughout this 12 month project we aim to improve the children’s abilities to express themselves and their feelings and to help them cope with different situations and feelings.
