Urgent assistance for medicaments for NBH

The Ukrainian government pays 0.08 euros for medications per child per day. For 200 children, the budget per month is 500 euros, which is not nearly enough. Medications have become 5x more expensive since the crisis began 2 years ago, yet budget remained the same!

A Swiss sponsor has agreed to pay 100.- CHF monthly for essential drugs, which otherwise could not be bought by director Olga of NBH.

  • We are looking for further sponsors for drugs.

Everybody wishing to help Ukrainian orphanages make donations here…
Monthly payments are welcome!

Zurupinsk boarding school

Do you remember Karina, who was born with Apert syndrome and who did quite a few trips and operations, at the time she lived at NBH?

When the girl grew up she was moved to special boarding school for disabled children, which is situated in a little town of Zurupinsk (Kherson’s region). This spring we went to visit her and thus got to know this orphanage (ZuBS), its wonderful inhabitants and very friendly director.

In this letter, Olga Ivanovna, Director of the orphanage, writes about so called “Prevenar 13” vaccine, which protects children from severe forms of pneumococcal infections and is strongly recommended for children, whose diseases cause the weakness of immune system. The vaccine is very expensive and NBH cannot buy Prevenar 13 from its budget.

There are 10-20 children at NBH who, due to their diagnoses, permanently suffer from different forms of pneumonia, bronchitis and otitis. For them vaccination badly needed.

Please help and make a donation to buy vaccine for children….
