‘The organisation is prudent and careful in the way it handles funds, knowledge and talent. Every expenditure is accounted for: do we know someone else who might have an interest in sponsoring this, can we do this cheaper? As a tax consultant – accountant who has drawn up CfKK’s financial statement the last seven years now, I can only say I am deeply impressed.’
Lenny Blaakman, Director fiscality at Van Oers Accountancy & Advies and member of the Operational Board Nederland at CfKK
Every donation is welcome and will be used to treat and cure children suffering from cancer in Kosovo.
Up-to-date knowledge and expertise on pedriatic oncology are key to be able to provide effective treatment. Princess Máxima Center for Pedriatic Oncologie (short: the Máxima) does not give money, medicines or equipment, but shares its knowledge and expertise generously with partners in the Outreach Program. The value of such sustainable relations is invaluable.
The foundation actively searches for funding to support its general goal (medication) and additional initiatives in various projects such as tube-feeding for all children in UCCK Pedriatic hospital.
For several years now, CfKK organizes a fundraising dinner-with auction in the Netherlands. Every year more people subscribe and attend, and every year more money is raised. Because of the Corona (Covid-19) pandemic, the 2020 dinner had to be postponed. In the meantime, potential sponsors are approached by phone or online: the costs for medical treatment and associated care continue.

The board of the Care for Kosovo Kids foundation consists of volunteers that perform this function next to their regular job. The operational costs of CfKK are managed by e.g. conducting the board meetings at the home of board members. This keeps overhead costs low and ensures that as much money as possible goes to the treatment and care of sick children.
CfKK in The Netherlands is an Officially Recognised Charity for the Common Good (ANBI). This gives Dutch sponsors certain fiscal advantages. For more information see here.

Without external support CfKK cannot reach its goals. Next to donations, in kind help – knowledge, services, materials – is essential too. Right at the start in 2013 institutions, companies and individuals showed confidence in the foundation and contributed in various ways. Thanks to this support hundreds of children’s lives have been saved in the past 8 years.
This is how companies and organizations expressed their vision on corporate social responsibility. On behalf of the children, their parents, the medical staff of the Hematology-Oncology department of the UCCK in Pristina, and the CfKK board we sincerely thank all sponsors. Even so, this initiative remains in need for support!
‘Corporate Social Responsibility and Involvement’ has become an ever more important topic over the last 10 years, and comes in many colors. Companies and organizations are aware that the way they manifest themselves as socially responsible is a major factor in its valuation.
On this website, the tab Finances addresses ‘generous sponsors’. However, all kinds of support are attractive to Care for Kosovo Kids. E.g. as mentioned above, the support of the Princess Máxima Center is not provided as money, but is pricelessly important for the UCCK because they are complementary to CfKK. We can imagine that many more successful partnerships are possible.
Organizations and companies are gratefully invited to contemplate interesting collaborations with CfKK to reach ambitious goals. The mission of Care for Kosovo Kids is to provide children suffering from cancer with adequate care in their home country, originates from a sensde of solidarity. Kosovo is part of Europe, and equal opportunities for children with cancer fit with Europe’s values. Action is required to make this reality. CfKK takes on this challenge and is looking for sponsors.
