Maria, an extraordinary fighter

Maria entered the protection program due to abuse and neglect from birth by her biological family. At only three years and five months old, this little girl has faced different health problems, such as acute malnutrition, an alteration in head circumference, a risk condition for her neurodevelopment, as well as Turner syndrome.

Maria came to us thanks to the adoption assessment strategy that is responsible for finding children in difficult adoption conditions throughout the country, and then prepare them for the adoption process, providing the necessary care while a family is found. In CRAN we seek that all children have the opportunity to be loved by a family that provides them with all the tools for their healthy development and growth.

This little fighter, was declared in adoptability condition, so she was transferred to CRAN Foundation on February 12, 2021. Due to her health condition, Maria has needed the attention of different specialists, neuropediatrics, neuropsychology, genetics, in addition to comprehensive therapies. Maria comes from another region and her access to health services due to the transfer between regions has been hindered by legal issues, added to this the contingency for Covid 19, in addition to the public order problems that have been occurring in the country; Maria's health condition could not wait, so the Foundation resorted to private specialists to meet the special needs of Maria in a timely manner.

Upon her arrival at CRAN, Maria found a different, loving and caring environment, with green areas, parks and play spaces that have contributed to her adequate adaptation and improvement in her level of development. After these advances, CRAN Foundation finally found a family that is willing to love and care for her, so Maria will have a second chance with loving and responsible parents.

It is thanks to the support of our donors that CRAN is able to offer Maria and other children the health care they need while they regain the right to have a family that will love and care for them forever.

Due to the pandemic that has affected the entire world, the health sector has been in a difficult situation as it has focused on solving Covid-19 related care needs. The subsidy system that covers children's health issues has had several restrictions so that urgent procedures are not a priority and dental and audiometry appointments are not available.


Thanks to the support and generosity of everyone, we have been able to guarantee priority and urgent attention by a dentist, who to date has attended 27 cases of children who come to CRAN with serious hygiene and oral health issues.
Most of the children, who come from Venezuela, arrive with oral health complications where many of them lose their teeth due to lack of hygiene which causes gingivitis and even more serious difficulties.


Your solidarity has allowed 35 children to take their audiometry exams and controls, which, like dentistry, was not possible to obtain through the subsidized network. Likewise, we were able to take the children directly to the specialists and we were able to give them the examinations and medicines they were prescribed.

Medical evaluations and examinations are also fundamental in the development process of our children. Precisely determining their health status is key to finding the best adoptive family that can guarantee their care. The assistance and follow-up of health treatments are possible thanks to the fact that there is always a caregiver available to accompany them in safe transportation.

Thank you very much!

Debido a la pandemia que ha afectado al mundo entero, el sector de salud se ha visto en una situación difícil puesto que se ha enfocado en cubrir las necesidades de atención relacionadas con el Covid-19. El sistema de subsidio que cubre los temas de salud de los niños ha tenido varias restricciones por lo que los procedimientos urgentes no son prioritarios y no es posible acceder a citas de odontología y audiometría.

Gracias al apoyo y generosidad de todos, hemos podido garantizar la atención prioritaria y urgente por parte de una odontóloga, que al día de hoy, ha atendido 27 casos de niños y niñas que ingresan a CRAN con temas de higiene y salud oral graves.

La mayoría de los niños que provienen de nacionalidad venezolana, llegan con complicaciones de salud oral en donde muchos de ellos pierden sus dientes debido a falta de higiene lo que provoca gingivitis e incluso dificultades más serias.

Su solidaridad ha permitido que 35 niños hayan tomado sus exámenes y controles de audiometría, que al igual que la odontología, por medio de la red subsidiada no fue posible obtener. Así mismo, logramos llevar a los niños directamente con los especialistas y pudimos practicarles los exámenes y darles las medicinas que les formulan.

Las valoraciones y los exámenes médicos son además fundamentales en el proceso de desarrollo de nuestros niños. Determinar con precisión el estado de salud es clave para encontrar la mejor familia adoptante que pueda garantizar su cuidado. La asistencia y seguimiento de los tratamientos de salud son posibles gracias a que siempre hay una cuidadora disponible que los acompaña en un transporte seguro. 

¡Muchas gracias!

Sebastian was born on May 28, 2019 with respiratory problems as a result of poor birth control and what his mother went through to hide the pregnancy.

 

During the gestation, Sebastian's mother was sent to a teenage pregnancy and nursing operator and at birth, he was left in the care and custody of his grandmother Gloria. Sebastian did not receive the necessary care from his grandmother and had to be hospitalized for severe pneumonia and developmental deficiencies of his lungs.

 

Being in intensive care at the hospital, the protection measure of the child is sought and at nine months and twenty days of birth, CRAN assumes the care of Sebastian who is brought to the Foundation in February 2020.

 

CRAN assumed the care of Sebastian, giving him the best possible conditions. Fernanda, a CRAN caretaker, assures that it has been a huge challenge. It was three months where the child was in a rigorous care not only to attend his pneumonia and respiratory problems, but also to attend his developmental problems because Sebastian showed a gap in his development for not having the necessary early stimulation and very low weight. 

 

Thanks to the strict care that was given to Sebastian at CRAN, in June when he had his check-ups at the hospital they gave the great news that he no longer needed oxygen, of the eight medicines that he had formulated, he would only be left with one and would gain considerably in weight.

 

Today, Sebastian is already one year and four months old, has gained weight and is already walking thanks to the CRAN caregivers who made it possible for him to move around and without assistance from anyone.

 

You CRANsform this reality! You make it possible for children like Sofia, to enjoy a nurturing environment of love, care and protection dureing the time with us.



Thank you very much for loving, protecting and caring for our children!


We invite you to continue supporting us and spread our project with your friends, family and coworkers. Thank you for building a better world with us!

Sebastián, un verdadero luchador

 

Sebastián nace el 28 de mayo de 2019 con problemas respiratorios como consecuencia a los pobres controles natales y a lo que se sometió su madre para esconder el embarazo. 

 

Durante la gestación, la mamá de Sebastián fue enviada a un operador de adolescentes de madres gestantes y lactantes y al nacer, él quedó bajo el cuidado y custodia de su abuela Gloria. Sebastián no recibió los cuidados necesarios por parte de su abuela y tuvo que ser hospitalizado por una fuerte neumonía y deficiencias en el desarrollo de sus pulmones.

 

Estando en cuidados intensivos en el hospital, se busca la medida de protección del menor y a los nueve meses y veinte días de nacido, CRAN asume el cuidado de Sebastián quien  es llevado a la Fundación en febrero de 2020. 

 

CRAN asumió el cuidado de Sebastián, dándole las mejores condiciones posibles. Fernanda, una cuidadora de CRAN asegura que ha sido un reto enorme. Fueron tres meses donde el niño estuvo en un cuidado riguroso no sólo para atender su neumonía y problemas respiratorios, sino también para atender sus problemas de desarrollo pues Sebastián mostraba un desfase en su desarrollo por no haber contado con la estimulación temprana necesaria y muy bajo peso. 

 

Gracias al estricto cuidado que se le brindó a Sebastián en CRAN, en junio cuando volvió a tener sus controles en el hospital dieron la gran noticia que ya no necesitaba oxígeno, de los ocho medicamentos que tenía formulados, solo quedaría con uno y aumento considerablemente de peso.

 

Hoy en día, Sebastián ya tiene un año y cuatro meses, ha subido de peso y ya camina gracias a las cuidadoras de CRAN que hicieron posible que pueda moverse y sin asistencia de nadie. 

 

¡Tú CRANsformas esta realidad! Haces posible que niños como Sofía, mientras están con nosotros, puedan disfrutar de un entorno nutritivo, de amor, cuidado y protección.

 

¡¡Muchas gracias por querer, proteger y cuidar a nuestros niños!!

With your support we have been able to prevent contagion and take care of our children and adolescents according to the protocols and standards for the protection of Covid-19. We want to tell you the story of one of our little girls, Sofía. She arrived at CRAN when she was only three days old and the outlook was not very encouraging. Her background was complex, her biological parents are street dwellers and during her gestation period they were under the consumption of psychoactive substances, which did not allow Sofia to fully develop. Due to this situation, the baby was born with few prenatal checkups, which added additional risks to her health. Her low defenses, her insufficient weight, among other difficulties associated with pulmonary issues, caused above all a respiratory deficiency that has been the greatest challenge for CRAN's health care during this time of pandemic.

Shortly after entering CRAN, on April 24, to be precise, Sofía began to show signs of fever and respiratory distress, very similar to the symptoms associated with Covid-19. EMI, the home health service came to the emergency, performed the test for Covid and transferred her to a hospital. Results that confirmed it was not Coronavirus were received 18 days later, time during which Sofia remained hospitalized. During all this time, personalized individual accompaniment was carried out in the hospital, and then she was given special care during isolation.

A month later, Sofía returned with the other CRAN children, where the care with oxygen and antibiotics was initially maintained, which allowed her to be in perfect health today.

Sofía is proof of the desire that our little ones have to live and luckily today she is healthy and growing with all the care and love as any of our children and adolescents under the temporary protection of CRAN.

You CRANsform this reality! You make it possible for children like Sofia, to enjoy a nurturing environment of love, care and protection dureing the time with us.

Thank you very much for loving, protecting and caring for our children!

We invite you to continue supporting us and spread our project with your friends, family and coworkers. Thank you for building a better world with us!

Con tu apoyo hemos podido prevenir el contagio y cuidar a nuestros niños, niñas y adolescentes de acuerdo a los protocolos y estándares para protección del Covid-19.

Te queremos contar la historia de una de nuestras chiquitas, Sofía. Llegó a CRAN con solo tres días de nacida y el panorama no era muy alentador. Sus antecedentes eran complejos, sus padres biológicos son habitantes de calle y durante su período de gestación estuvieron bajo el consumo de sustancias psicoactivas, lo que no permitió el desarrollo pleno de Sofía. Debido a esta situación, la bebé nació con escasos controles prenatales, lo que sumaba riesgos adicionales para su salud. Su baja de defensas, su peso insuficiente, entre otras dificultades asociadas a temas pulmonares, acarrearon sobretodo una deficiencia respiratoria que ha sido el mayor reto para el cuidado de su salud por parte de CRAN durante esta época de pandemia.

Al poco tiempo de ingresar a CRAN, el 24 de abril para ser precisos, Sofía empezó a presentar signos de fiebre y dificultad respiratoria, muy parecidos a los síntomas asociados al Covid-19. EMI, el servicio de salud domiciliario acudió a la emergencia, le realizó la prueba para Covid y la traslado a un centro hospitalario. Los resultados que confirmaron que no era Coronavirus se recibieron 18 días después, tiempo durante el cual Sofía continuó hospitalizada. Durante todo ese tiempo se hizo el acompañamiento individual personalizado en el hospital y luego estuvo con cuidados especiales durante el aislamiento.

Un mes después Sofía regresó con los demás niños de CRAN, en donde en principio se mantuvieron los cuidados con oxígeno y antibióticos, lo que permitió que hoy se encuentre en perfectas condiciones de salud.

Sofía es una prueba fehaciente de las ganas que tienen nuestros chiquitos de vivir y afortunadamente hoy está saludable y creciendo con todos los cuidados y el amor como cualquiera de nuestros niños, niñas y adolescentes bajo la protección temporal de CRAN.

¡Tú CRANsformas esta realidad! Haces posible que niños como Sofía, mientras están con nosotros, puedan disfrutar de un entorno nutritivo, de amor, cuidado y protección.

¡¡Muchas gracias por querer, proteger y cuidar a nuestros niños!!
