The desire of living

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!!

Te invitamos a que nos continúes apoyando y difundas nuestro proyecto con tus amigos, familia y compañeros de trabajo. ¡Gracias por construir con nosotros un mundo mejor!
