There are always many patients in each department of the Municipal Medical-Prophylactic Institution “Slovyans’k Central Regional Hospital”, which for various reasons cannot move independently. Doctors explain that they have a minimum of wheelchairs for transportation of patients and they are sorely lacking. The action “Special Transport for People with Disabilities” of the program “Walking to the Health Land” of the United World Cultures Foundation and the International Charity Fund “Assistance of the Development of Medicine” came for the rescue.
The chief doctor of the Slovyans’k Central Regional Hospital, Alexander Belanov, adds: “No matter how big the budget of medical institution, it is still not enough. Therefore, this stroller is essential, it is new and will be used for its intended purpose. It is impossible to work in hospital without wheelchairs. We especially need such wheelchairs, because it is for separation, for example, traumatology, it is a very necessary transport, there are patients with fractures of the limbs, it is usually difficult for them to move around. We hope to get more wheelchairs, it will be much comfortable for patients of the hospital. This “vehicle” will facilitate the work of the hospital medical staff. Particularly pleased that the donated stroller is very functional, comfortable and light."
“We will continue to work in this direction. The program “Walking to the Health Land” of the United World Cultures Foundation cooperates with an international funds, from which vehicles come in a disassembled form. I want to thank our partners - the International Charitable Foundation "Assistance to the Development of Medicine", and all those who helped to get this wheelchair in Mykolayivka city, Slovyans’k district, Donetsk region. We hope that the new vehicle will facilitate the work of doctors and help patients. We will continue to help the medical institution to improve the material and technical base and at the same time save money on operating tables, functional beds and other equipment,” - said Lyudmila Lysenko, the program manager of the UWCF.
We wish health to all of you!
