We help families

Eva pour la vie provides support to families of sick or deceased children , to finance the costs inherent in illness (travel, care, etc.) or the death of the child. This aid responds to a real need that affects all social strata of the population, and in particular single mothers.

Following the announcement of cancer or a serious illness in a child, many parents reduce their professional activity, or even put it on hold to stay with him. This leads to a drop in income even though the charges do not decrease or even increase, the disease often generating additional costs, with sometimes inadequate support from the social system.

In order to relieve families of their financial worries, Eva pour la vie can cover, on supporting documents, unsupported medical costs (on medical proof) , transport and accommodation costs related to the hospitalization of a child (parents' house, hotel, rental, etc.), as well as all basic bills (water, gas, electricity, rent, etc.). We also help families of deceased children (funeral costs). Please note that, unless otherwise specified, this aid is reserved for residents in France or overseas departments and territories.

These one-off aids are allocated by the Board of Directors of the Eva pour la vie association, after prior analysis of the supporting documents presented. We make sure to provide a response in principle within a reasonable period of time (generally within 7-10 days), while knowing how to adapt to urgent cases. These help do not replace legal benefits and are adapted to the circumstances of each family.

Since April 2020 (following the closure of several parents' homes) we have been working with our partners (individuals, professionals such as Airbnb) to help families of children hospitalized - including in day hospitals - to benefit from free accommodation temporary near the hospital
when they live more than 1 hour or more than 120 kilometers from it.
