Approximately 600 injections per year have children diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. Pain, tears, fear – gigabytes of negative emotions that small patients feel 100 days a year when they undergo antibiotic therapy. There is a way to reduce the number of punctures, pain, and fear. Vein scanner is a magical device that allows you to see the veins through the skin and get a syringe into the blood vessel from the first time.
CF "Pomogaem"Дніпропетровськ, вул. Красна, 3а
CF "Pomogaem" was founded in 2009 by volunteers who worked in the children's hospitals, helped seriously ill children, and foster parents who took care of orphans. This determined the main areas for charity of the Fund.
Nowadays, the Foundation implements charity in three areas: Health, Family and Accessability.
Natalia Gurova has 4 favorite daughters. The two younger daughters have one common problem – a hearing loss. The family does everything possible so that the girls do not feel isolated from the world. Vika wears hearing aids and Sasha got cochlear implantation when she was 4 years old. But for last several months Sasha lives in constant anxiety: the speech processor, the most important part of the implant, has broken down. It was temporarily repaired, but it can fail at any moment. And remaining in the world of silence for only a month causes that Sasha will begin to lose skills of speech that were acquired with such difficulty.
70 convulsions a day is a terrible figure, especially when a 9-month-old baby suffers. A year and a half ago, Olia's parents were in despair at the inability to cope with epilepsy. But her mother found an innovative clinic, we found funds – and a year ago, Olia began to be treated in Chernivtsi. The result is incredible: the dose of anticonvulsant was gradually reduced – Olia won epilepsy! But there is still a long way: it is necessary to correct the treatment so as convulsions don’t return, and to restore the nervous system. In August, the Chernivtsi clinic is waiting for Olia again.
My name is Ekaterina Gavrilenko, I'm an employee of the CF "Pomogaem" and in the race almost a rookie. I was led to a charitable action by our foundation, and when it was over, I did not quit my morning jogs – so my work and life are closely intertwined with me. Now I'm running so that the smiles on the faces of children from the oncology department of the Dnieper appear more often!
Hospital clowning is one of the kindest and bright projects in volunteering. A funny costume, a little make-up - and an office worker turns into a magician for a few hours, who makes young patients forget about pain, fear, and loneliness – and to start laughing, laughing, laughing. In developed countries, hospital clowning is considered so serious matter that clowns receive official salaries in hospitals. In Ukraine, there are no salaries yet, but there are already "doctors" with rubber clown noses. And now the team "Doctor Clown Dnieper" needs your help.
Outside the window is almost mid-fall. And very, very soon, the spirit of the New Year will be about to happen! Soon volunteers will begin to rehearse concerts for the orphanages. In Dnipropetrovsk region, there are almost no any orphanages for the healthy children, but there are foster families, which need support even much more. In January 2018 500 foster children and parents will come to Dnipro to visit the annual holiday "Christmas meetings". And once again we are asking you to help it to come true.
Christmas is the time of real miracles and fulfillment of cherished desires! December 9-10 at the art plant "Platform" will be the most charming flea market of the year – Christmas Kurazh Bazar. We will sell and buy gifts, drink mulled wine and eat the roast marshmallow, choose a Christmas tree at a Christmas tree market, dance for Christmas songs and exchange greetings. And the main thing is to help children! The purpose of fundraising during Kurazh Bazar is to provide children who are refuseniks who live in 4 hospitals of the Dnieper with the necessary minimum, and these are hygiene products (diapers, wet napkins, soap with dispenser), infant formula and cereal.
At the beginning of this year you’ve supported small Olya in her fight for disease control, and the cure, new for our country, proved to be effective! The magic ketonic therapy released baby from the epi activity, Olya stopped suffering from the pain and began to develop. Now she wouldn’t stop in this therapy. Doctors are waiting for Olya in Chernivtsi in October for the check up, dietary adjustment and rehabilitation.
One and half years ago you worked a miracle for small Olia, donating more than 200 000₴ to help to get rid of the birth defect, exstrophy o the bladder. After 4 failed operations in Dnipro, the girl has finally got to experienced doctor, who corrected the most of the problems. Urogenital system functions now nearly right, and there is no more open sore on girl’s tummy! The next step is endoscopic checkup, the important stage in the enuresis control. We have only one month to gather 1 500€ for Olia.
The reason why Artemii in the first year of his life has completely lost his hearing – medicine has no answer. The most modern devices cannot compensate hearing for the child- only cochlear implant can do this, but it costs 29 500 €. By incredible efforts, parents have collected most of the funds, for another 10,000 € German charitable foundations provided a guarantee letter under the condition that by the 1 of July there will be found the remaining amount. We and you have a month to collect 395 000 UAH and return the world of sounds to Tema.
