Be our Christmas miracle

2020 has been a tough year for a lot of people. And this reminds us to be grateful for every single donation you’ve made throughout the year, for every single minute you’ve spent advocating for us by sharing our mission with your family, colleagues and friends. It means the world to us!

You probably remember our last report when we promised to try organizing another food campaign for the 100 families we’ve supported in April. Unfortunately, we couldn’t gather enough money to help all the families we are working with so we will postpone this campaign with another month or two.

Nevertheless, we are still helping women and babies in need, by visiting the mothers and speaking with them about how important breastfeeding is, by teaching them how to prepare nutritious food for them and their babies witha limited budget, etc.

We won’t give up on providing nutritious food to vulnerable kids and young mothers. Please don’t give up either.

Wishing you and your family health, happiness and peace this Christmas and in the coming New Year.

Stay safe.

At least one life was saved...

In the present situation, basic health care is beyond the reach of many families, partly due to lack of health insurance, partly because of the pandemic. Since the beginning of the year, the medical center is operating at full speed. In the last months many checkups were made – monitoring of pregnancy and medical examinations during pregnancy, general gynecologic evaluation and pediatric examinations…one life was saved as well.

I believe, now is the time to share with you another story from the real life in this neighborhood.

Dani is a pregnant girl from Fakulteta and like many others there she is uninsured. And that stops her from receiving the necessary medical care for her and her unborn baby. Our medical team met Dani when she was in her 5th month of pregnancy. In the beginning she was skeptical and afraid to go to the medical center but after few conversations she agreed on being examined…And that saved her baby’s life. One of the doctors identified a risk for the fetus and referred the young girl for emergency treatment. Dani received the necessary help and continue caring her baby. The little boy was born healthy 3 months after.

This story shows the importance of having a medical center in the neighborhood where the mothers and their babies receive lifesaving advices from our pediatric and gynecologist.

Dani, her son and the many others like them need your support,so please don’t let them down. We know there are so many good charities that will seek your help and you should know how honored we are when you choose to make a girt to our cause.

Thank you!

Now, more than ever, the kids need you

Dear Friend,

I would like to take the time to sincerely thank you for your support and trust to The Trust for Social Achievement Foundation. You’ve helped us achieve a lot in only an year. Thanks to you, we managed to provide nutritious food to more than 100 young pregnant women, teenage moms and their babies in need.

As COVID-19 continues to spread, the future has never felt so unpredictable. And although the crises has affected everyone’s lives, without any doubt, the society’s most vulnerable was hit the hardest. Now, more than ever, our community needs us. And we need you.

We haven’t had the chance to organize any food delivery since April because we’ve used almost all the donations we’ve got (only $50 are avaible now). Nevertheless, we are still helping women and babies in need, by sharing our knowledge and experience with colleagues who are organizing such campaigns.

We will continue our efforts in subsidizing the cost of warm baby food and partnering with local kitchens to provide moms and their children with healthy food on a daily basis, but in those challenging times I believe that our focus will stay on the emergency help and on the provision of food for both mother and baby.

In September, GlobalGiving is giving us a great chance by matching your donations starting from 09:00:00 ET on Monday, September 14, 2020, to 23:59:59 ET on Friday, September 18, 2020. Donations up to $50 per unique donor per organization will be matched at 50% for the entire five-day campaign. So please support us so we can fulfil our goal to organize another big food delivery in October.

Thank you again for joining the efforts of the many generous donors in Bulgaria and abroad!

We couldn’t have done this without you.

Stay safe,

Olya
