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.
As the Venezuelan crisis increases, so do the challenges Hogar Bambi faces every day. Today we are supporting 120 children in our 4 houses, and we are expanding to attend more children every day.
The strong socio-economic problems in our country make it difficult to obtain food, medicines and the basics supplies needed to keep a child healthy so that there are many cases of child abandonment. Bambi faces these challenges with courage and a lot of dedication and thanks to the contributions we receive, we can provide shelter and comprehensive care to those children that need it the most.
This year the possibility to obtain contribution from national companies or individual has been very difficult, so we are increasingly counting on the support we can obtain from platforms like GlobalGiving that allow us to get closer to people with a deep sense of responsibility and altruism that feel pleasure helping Bambi to achieve its mission. Day by day, it is more important and essential for us each aid received from abroad, so we deeply and sincerely thank everyone that contributes to our cause.
