The charitable foundation “Yamine” suggests residents of Yamal to become participants of the large project on raising funds for children in need of constant rehabilitation. During eight years of work of the foundation more than 3500 children received assistance, 20% of them in need of high-tech medical care, and 80% — in rehabilitation.
“We receive appeals from parents, whose children are six months old. Parents understand that help is needed already now. We know from experience that the earlier such assistance is provided, the more effective the rehabilitation will be. These children have a high chance to live a full life, if rehabilitation takes place as often as possible and as long as possible”, said the director of the charitable foundation Dmitry Frolov to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press”.
Constant, long-term rehabilitation is necessary for children suffering from cerebral palsy and disorders of the musculoskeletal system. These children need three courses annually lasting 3-4 weeks each up to 12-13 years old. The cost of one course ranges from 150 to 200 thousand rubles. Patients with such diagnoses have high rehabilitation potential, and, consequently, a chance to regain health and be socialized in the society.
According to Frolov, only in 2019 “Yamine” provided assistance to 860 children in the amount of 75 million rubles, 600 appeals were received during the same time in 2018. The foundation receives daily about 30-40 applications, many of them — for emergency high-tech assistance and purchase of expensive medicaments. Exactly these appeals become priority. However, the foundation understands how important it is to continue already started rehabilitation, and, therefore, “Yamine” asks residents of Yamal to become participants in the large project of assistance.
Video stories and photos of these children will be published on the website of the foundation, which will provide targeted assistance. It is possible to transfer money on the details specified on the website of the foundation (http://ямине.рф/pomoch-seychas/). The website is in Russian. Rehabilitation will take place in well-known Russian centers.
