In Hogar Bambi, we make an extraordinary effort every day to give the best conditions possible to our kids, either if they stay for a short time or a long time.
In the last months, we have received a considerable amount of children, mainly newborn, due to the serious social and economic situation in Venezuela. This is why we are committed to continuing working and struggling to give these children and their families support. This situation compels us to hire more people to attend them, acquire more supplies and the furniture they need, to work harder towards the wellbeing of the kids that live with us in Hogar Bambi.
This is the reason why the support of our donors and allies through Global Giving is much more important and necessary every day. Now we attend more than 100 kids and adolescents and we are prepared to continue growing to be able to give attention to more kids.
Thanks to Global Giving and thanks to our generous and supportive donors for all the effort they do, we surely will continue accomplishing our mission day by day, giving high-quality comprehensive attention and a lot of love and affection to those who need from us.
One of our main concerns at this time in Bambi is to be able to provide medicines and quality medical attention to our 120 children. This is why we decided to create this project.
Medical assistance in the public health system is lacking basics equipment and doctors to attend the patients, so that, we have to take our kids to private hospitals where the kids can get the attention they deserve, but the costs are very high.
Thanks to our donors and to Global Giving, we have been able to provide vaccines to some of our kids and to take those who needed immediate assistance to a private hospital; like a girl suffering from severe malnutrition that had to be taken to the hospital to preserve her life, and a girl that had pneumonia and needed urgent and quality medical assistance, medicines and antibiotics.
We have 120 children and teenagers in our houses and we are responsible for their health and wellbeing, therefore we are grateful to Global Giving for the space that they offer to us and for all the contributions, we have received from our donors.
It has been 22 years taking care of the most vulnerable kids in Venezuela, 22 years providing all their physical, educational, recreational and even emotional and affective needs. In today´s Venezuela, it is harder every day to achieve this task completely. It is widely known the worsening economic situation that lessen our local incomes from contributions that used to allow us to achieve our goals, also and at the same time this situation has had an impact on the increasing number of children coming to our institution and of people asking for help. The number of abandoned children because of lack of resources in the family is inconceivable and painful. Thus, Global Giving has become an essential and very useful tool to the international fundraising activities of our institution allowing us to be present in an important and recognized platform with a worldwide presence and that help us to spread our cause too many more people around the world.
We have 120 children and teenagers in our houses towards whom we are committed and responsible for, therefore we are grateful to Global Giving for the space that they offer to us and for all the contributions we have received from our donors.
