For years now, AFG has been providing important resources to improve the care of children suffering from leukemia at the Hematology/Oncology Clinic at the Iashvili Children's Hospital in Tbilisi. This is the only clinic in Georgia where children suffering from leukemia and lymphoma are treated and thus providing appropriate resources is vital for the well-being of children at Iashvili hospital.

Luka’s journey against acute leukemia has not been easy. Two relapses, several surgeries, severe pain, and chemotherapy treatments have not stopped Luka from becoming an inspiration of bravery for other children at Iashvili hospital.

His positive mindset can be easily detected in colorful paintings in which Nikoloz depicts his optimism and love of life.
