The prematurely born child due to the underdevelopment of organs after birth enters the intensive care unit. Here begin the most responsible resuscitation actions. And it is the resuscitation table that becomes a longhouse for a newborn. The table provides the optimum temperature for the correct heat exchange of the infant, ensures optimal access to the patient from 4 sides and makes it possible to carry out complex urgent operations, all other devices are connected to it (infusion pump, pulse oximeters, flow sensors, etc.). When such a table breaks, doctors simply do not know what to do! How can babies be nursed without special equipment? Such a table broke in Chernivtsi and the purpose of the project to fix it.
There were tons of joy and happiness when the Melnikov family gave birth to the twin girls: two wonderful daughters Tetiana and Svitlanka. But something went wrong, and after the cesarean section, Svitlanka was taken to the resuscitation department of the maternity clinic. The week in convulsions... Doctors only shrug their shoulders! They said that we had to accept that the child would never be like her sister. However, her mother did not want to put up with it.

When the daughter was transferred to the regional hospital, the convulsions stopped, the child began to breathe on her own and recover.
Homelessness is a big social problem in our country. Losing a home, people also lose the place where they can satisfy the basic needs in food, hygiene and rest. Several years ago our organization founded shelter for the homeless with the aim to give the second chance for a better life for homeless people ready to fight for their lives. Also, every year we arrange a common celebration of Christmas and Easter for the homeless and needy people of our town, to remind them about the better life they deserve. This year we are waiting for 100 people to come to Easter breakfast and ask you to help us to purchase food for preparation of Easter breakfast and making of food kits.
Old age can be very different. Someone spends years on the slope of the years in the circle of relatives and friends who are surrounded by care and care; Someone finds solace and support by communicating and sharing the daily difficulties of an aging being with old friends, friends, neighbors, with whom much has been experienced together for long life. For someone, even when far beyond ..., every day is filled with abundant work and troubles... And there are those old people who envy all of the above-mentioned peers and would have agreed to give a lot to find themselves in the place of one of them: to hear grandson twitches, warm hands daughter or son, sympathetic and understanding the old friend's view, or to ask for a simple economy from morning till evening...
Not so long ago, scientists in the world discovered a severe childhood disease, primary immunodeficiency (FID), a hereditary genetic disease with which a person is born. A sick PID child does not have sufficient natural immunity, as a result of which each disease is tolerated by such a child very difficult and for a long time. There are about 700 such children in Ukraine. These children regularly “pick up” bacterial, viral and fungal infections. And if a healthy children's body can resist infections on its own, then children with PIDs need strong antibiotics to suppress infections. If do not take medicine – the infection does not stop and the result will be sad.
Every year around 500 000 babies is born in our country. 24000 of them are born preterm. We call them Neterpliachki because they so hurry to see this world, that they are born premature, preterm. If a qualified medical help is not provided, 70 % of these children may pass away. It is vitally important to control all the life indicators of the baby because an in-time help is a pledge of saving the baby's life. In case of the immaturity of the vital body systems of Neterplyachki's (for example if a baby cannot breathe on its own), it gets to the department of children's intensive care.
Karina’s successful surgery depends on a small part. In a week the girl needs to have an endoprosthesis inserted – an implant that will substitute the affected bone.

The cost of the part is more than 35 000 UAH.
Little Sasha spent half of his life fighting for it. He had been fighting to live and not to know pain and suffering. The tumor affected several organs, as well as bones. At the Cancer Institute, the boy had a complicated surgery. And now he needs to know: what’s next? The treatment will continue but according to which protocol? For the doctors to be able to make a decision, the MIBG scan is required. That’s the only informative examination in case of neuroblastoma. The Italian Clinic in Bergamo is ready to accept the child on April 17th; the price is 522 euros. But the young family who has been on treatment with their son for almost a year does not have this amount.
