About The Hospice

The Belarusian Children's Hospice (BCH) is the leading children’s hospice-at-home service in the Russian speaking countries. It provides palliative care for children throughout Belarus and supports their families. BCH is a registered Belarusian charity based in Minsk, the capital of Belarus, which is located just north of Chernobyl.

The core purpose of BCH is to help families to care for their children with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses AT HOME which means that these children do not have to spend months or even years in hospitals. BCH provides medical, social and psychological support for terminally and chronically ill children and their families on their journey through life to death. Its aim is to maintain the best quality of life possible for the child and create positive experiences during a brief life which become precious memories for the family.

When BCH opened in 1994, it was the first children's hospice in the former Soviet Union and cared for just a few children. Today, it cares for up to 220 children and young people each year.

BCH’s hospice at home services are provided free of charge by virtue of the charitable donations it receives from individuals and organisations.
