Transcom's Shared Service Center in Vilnius supports fundraising inititative for families of children with cancer
In December 2016, Transcom Shared Service Center Vilnius (SSC) decided to organize a fund raising for a good purpose - to support an initiative of building a home for families of the children with oncological diseases. Every year about 100 children under 18 are diagnosed with cancer in Lithuania. Recovering from this disease takes from half a year up to several years, depending on how advanced the cancer is. When the child gets ill – the whole family is affected by this illness as well. Only one parent can stay with the child in the hospital, while other family members stay apart. To ease the situation for these families and give them a possibility to get through this rough time in their lives standing strong together we invited the whole Shared Service Center to contribute to the project of building a home! This home will be located near the biggest oncological center in Lithuania.Here the families will get medical care from pediatricians, pain specialists, medics,oncologists, but they will also have access to different art and music therapies. The aim with the home is to help families get better both physically and emotionally. Transcom's fund raising event was initiated together with fun activities for the whole department including snacks, fun videos remembering what we achieved in 2016 and what we are looking forward to in 2017. Also, we received many cheerful Christmas video greetings from our colleagues we work with daily from all over Europe, the Philippines and North America – really building a feeling of One Transcom! During this wonderful time of the year we are so happy to contribute to making good things happen.
