New equipment for the Children's Hematology

Thanks to your support, we continued assisting Children’s Hematology department at the Institute of Oncology in Chisinau. In July we made another purchase of medical equipment and supplies in amount of 56,198 Leu ($4,500). Among the other items, the Children’s Hematology received the monitor V100 specifically designed for patients who require vital signs measurements. The monitor will be used to control children's blood pressure, temperature and other vital signs before and after operations. This is a critical equipment as it helps make accurate and consistent measurements even on children with low or unstable perfusion pressures.

Monitor V100

Due to our continuous involvement in the community, we can attract more attention to the cause. In April we held the large community event which we called the March of Light. Participants, each carrying balloons of different colour, got together for an evening walk in Valea Morilor Park in Chisinau, Moldovan capital.

Volunteer at March of Light

Our goal was to show solidarity with people living with cancer and in memory of those who lost their lives. The walk was a warm and beautiful event. About 4000 people participated. We raised 125,450 Leu ($10,035) and were able to purchase two important medical devices for blood analysis and transfusions. In the video below [in Romanian] you will see episodes from the March of Light and medical equipment that we donated to the Children's Hematology together with Moldcell Company, our partner.

We thank you for your continuous support! Each new equipment, medical device or parts make huge impact on the Children’s Hematology department and mean true difference in the lives of children.
