One of the most important needs of families living outside the metropolitan area of Barcelona is to have a place near the hospital to live while the treatments last. This resort has 25 fully equipped apartments to meet this need for free.

The house is maintained thanks to altruistic collaborations, sponsorships with companies, public subsidies and donations.

WHO CAN ACCESS THE HOUSE OF THE XUKLIS

The Social Work Area assesses the case of each family, always in coordination with the medical and social work teams of the relevant hospitals (Vall d’Hebron and Sant Joan de Déu) where the child or adolescent is admitted.

Families from all over
Catalonia, outside the strong area,
Metropolitan of Barcelona
.

Families that come
of the rest of the State,
Spain
.

Foreign families
that come via
International Cooperation.

Families derived from
from other Hospitals outside
of the Spanish State.

Access to the Casa dels Xuklis is based on medical and social criteria, on the need for the family to be housed near the hospital in the city of Barcelona.

Other cases not reflected are assessed individually always following these criteria.

The AFANOC social worker manages it in coordination with the medical and Social Work team of the child’s reference hospitals, as well as with Social Services, Primary Care teams, Child and Adolescent Care teams, associations of children with cancer, town councils, etc.

WHO ARE THE XUKLIS?

bg-xuklis-1900x320

The Xuklis are magical beings who receive this name because they have the ability to “suck the bad rolls that childhood cancer generates in the family environment. The Xuklis have been around for a long time “they work” in the pediatric oncology and hematology plants of the leading hospitals in pediatric oncology. They are a little shy and naughty, but from their childhood innocence, they accompany and encourage them throughout the process they will go through.
