Project Nursing Care: getting ready for summer!

Dear friends!

Thanks to your support our project "Nursing Care" is growing!

By May 2012 we have 20 nurses in 10 hospitals of Saint Petersburg and its region.

Summer time is always hard time for our nurses. Most of the children from orphanages and boarding schools leave the city for summer camps. Children who have some medical limitations for going to camps are used to be sent to hospitals as it is not effective for orphanages to leave a child-minder only for 1-2 children. So these children stay whole summer in hospital with no entertainment and no their friends at all.

Our nurses daily work with 3-10 children with different cases of illnesses. They not only help children go through unpleasant medical procedures such as shots, irrigation, bandaging and so on. They also spend some leisure with them like playing games, reading, painting. 

Since some of children spend in hospitals long time nurses help them to be on schedule with their lessons: they help them to learn new stuff, do their home work and so on.

Unfortunately hospitals can no provide all the children with needed help. They are only responsible for medical side of children's staying in hospitals.

That's why our project is so much needed and that is why we are growing.

Please keep supporting us from time to time!

We can only keep this vital project on going if you help us do so.

Thank you again!
