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….
