At the Hospice every life matters and every new day is welcomed with gratitude. It does not matter how much time the child has left, it matters how each day is spent.
Let’s make this world a better place and contribute to the important mission of Russian Children’s Hospice “Dom s Mayakom”.
“Dom s Maykom” (The Lighthouse) is a charity organisation dedicated to helping incurable children.
Though they can’t be cured, we can give them support and care. The Hospice aims to relieve the pain, make dreams come true and fill the life of a child and his family with happiness.
The Russian governement does not support sick children and their families. The Hospice and the people supporting it is one of the few hopes the incurable children of Russia and their families.
We will host a charity fair, where you can purchase hand-made arts and crafts produced by local artists and artisans, food, books and donate money directly or remotely. We will also host the presentation about the activities of the Hospice and tell you about their work in more details.

Meet the team!
Ksenia has been fundraising for the Hospice for a couple of year now. "I truly admire the work of these people... In Russia children with incurable diseases receive almost no support from the Government. For many families in Russia the Children's Hospice is their only hope. I believe that by reducing pain, providing proper often very expensive medication and medical equipment we can improve dramatically the quality of incurable children's life. Because no matter how much time is left, for these children and their families every new day is a blessing. I invite you to spend a beautiful afternoon with us on the 9th of December and make a difference for those who need your support"
Having a background in International affairs Sara is currently working in the start-up ecosystem.
She loves organising events, fundraising for great causes and she’s eager to help “Little Miracles” to come true.
Olga has MS in Life Sciences and is currently enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Geneva. She is also a founder of an invited speaker series "Small Talks Around" at the faculty of fundamental medicine. Coming from Russia, Olga is more than familiar with the public health situation back home. She is eager to help the Children's Hospice and make a difference for kids with incurable diseases.
Ksenia is a Russian watercolour artist living in Switzerland. She gets inspired by exploring new places so each time she is traveling she makes a new series of paintings. The main subjects are water, boats and nature. Most of the time she paints "en plein air" so there are only real things whichshe can see with her own eyes. During the event Ksenia will be selling my paintings to support children with incurable diseases and host a paiting workshop for kids.
Maiia is a PhD candidate at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. "I am participating in the organization of this event, because in the everyday race for results and success, I would like to keep some space for compassion. Russian families having children with incurable disease need our help to pay for expensive medical equipment, professional care services and medicines. I believe, if we combine all our efforts, we can achieve incredible results. If donations from this event are able to improve the quality of life for only one child, it would be already immense."
Co-president of the University of Lausanne association “La Route du Tchaï”, Anna Isanina is strongly connected with her motherland’s culture and is seeking any opportunity to promote it throughout language and state barriers to make this world a unite place, free from prejudices and media influenced misunderstandings, capable to resolve problems that are common for the entire human society
