This project raises funds for Moldovan children requiring advanced surgical and clinical care, including cardiac surgeries, congenital and acquired defects corrections, serious burn responses, eye surgeries and other treatments.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Moldovan families are often unable to pay for the costly critical surgeries and advanced treatment, which in many cases, need to be performed abroad. With costs climbing up to $15,000 - 20,000, such procedures become utterly inaccessible for majority of the families who earn about $150 in monthly income.
How will this project solve this problem?
Funds raised through the project will be used for payment to the billing hospitals. This will ensure timely and uninterrupted treatment and will ease financial burden placed on families. Alleviation in payment will also allow families to focus on additional related costs such as transportation, lodging, and etc., not covered by this project.
Potential Long Term Impact
Timely surgical care and advanced clinical treatment are crucial in many pediatric illnesses or conditions. When performed early and without disruption, such procedures may improve children's lives and help them become full and active members of their communities.
