Dear friends, we have successfully closed the urgent fundraising campaign for folding beds for mothers! In 10 days, we were able to raise more money than we expected. We got 59 500 rubles instead of 51 200 rubles. This will be enough for more than 20 folding beds that was the main goal of the fundraising campaign. So, we will be able to buy 3 more folding beds. Because of such significant support from our benefactors 23 mothers will be able to sleep next to their children, little patients of the children’s orthopedic department of the Federal Bureau of Medical and Social Expertise. “Thank you, dear friends!” – that is what we can say on behalf of our foundation, doctors, and mothers. It is really amazing to moms and their children to have a possibility to stay in hospital right next to each other.
In this department, children with severe disorders of the musculoskeletal system are treated and rehabilitated after serious medical surgeries. Among these little patients there are children who need constant care, as they cannot move by their own. That is why their mother have to live with kids in the hospital, they have to take care of children, feed them and look after them. The Federal Bureau of Medical and Social Expertise asked us for help in purchasing 20 folding beds for mothers, because right now families cannot stay at night with kids as there is no bed for them. But now the required amount is raised, and the total sum is exceeded our expectations thanks to a kind donation in the amount of the 48 050 rubles which was received on November 2.
We are grateful to each one of our benefactors:
Veronica I. for 1,000 rubles donation;
Larisa Yu. for 8 000 rubles donation;
Maya B. for 2 000 rubles donation;
A. U. for the kindest 48 050 rubles donation.
MANY THANKS to you, dear friends!
Also, we want a special thanks to everyone who shared our post about the fundraising campaign on social networks, who told friends and acquaintances about it.
This is the only way we can help those in need. This is the only way we can keep doing amazing things – doing them all together.
Let us recall why we are helping this federal clinic. The children’s orthopedic department of the Federal Bureau of Medical and Social Expertise takes care of the wards of our foundation with severe developmental disabilities from the Elatomsky orphanage, the Pervomaisky orphanage and the Moscow Orphanage No. 8 for mentally retarded children. We do know that the doctors of the clinic made what you call “a miracle”. But it is important to understand that mothers are big help in the period of postoperative care and rehabilitation for children. Doctors believe that it is necessary for a child to have their mom by his side to improve the quality of life during the whole treatment process. Unfortunately, the budget of the medical institution is not enough to purchase folding beds for mothers.
Our foundation believed that it would be useful to buy the folding beds that will be in a good condition for a long time. We were looking for comfortable, high quality and safe folding beds at the best price. We found those, the manufacturer gave us a good price, and we bought them. The purchase of 20 folding beds including delivery from the factory in Yaroslavl to Moscow was made of 51 200 rubles (2 560 rubles for each folding bed).
Folding beds “KTR-4”, which soon will be delivered, are designed for an adult weighing up to 120 kg, made of strong steel tubes with elastic springs and a mattress. They will stay in a good condition for years.
