Project Report | Mar 26, 2020
Support of urgent needs of the village elderly

By Yoana Stoyanova | Project Leader

Hello, once again dear Baba-supporters!

We, from Ideas Factory, hope you're all healthy and residing in a safe space! We hope your older relatives and close ones are in a good health too and manage to stay calm in this overwhelming situation. You know it very well, but still - if you don't live with them, the best way to keep them safe right now includes not seeing them for some time.

The first thing we did in order to be helpful for the well-being of the elderly in Bulgaria, was to compile simple advices on what to do in order to protect our loved older ones and hygienic advices and social servies.

Contact us in case you need an English version of these advices. They're in Bulgarian!

Our next Baba Residence edition was going to be in villages in South-Eastern Bulgaria - in Strandzha mountain. Because of the lockdown in our country and the long-term cautiousness that will follow it we can't realize the inmost meeting between generations, between human beings that we used to do the last 4 years. Now in the same way, though.

Right now, we are trying to answer the urgent needs of the elderly of all the villages we've been so far with Baba Residence - in the regions of Laki, Karlovo, Vratsa, Gotse Delchev and VIdin. This, in practice, means that we are talking with local people and authorities everyday and try our best to help them provide the village with either food, medicine, supplements or hygienic materials such as masks, gloves and desinfenctants. All of these are now scarce in most places because of the over-supplying many people did because of fear of not being able to go out for a long time.

But shops and drug stores are open everywhere in Bulgaria, all the time.

So, if you feel like it's meaningful to support us in these urgent matters, it would be more than helpful. We still don't know for how long this scarcity will continue or for how long people in the villages will need more of these supplies, because they lack in their regions.

Until 27th of MARCH (this Friday) GlobalGiving is having it's 50% matching campaign. Every donation up to $50 will be matched with 50% more from their fund. It will be a great time to support until then!

Thank you for listening and being present in this everything-changing moment!

Be healthy and calm,

Yoana and the Ideas Factory team
