Hello my dear friend!
Thanks to everyone who believed and believes in our project, we bring it to life thanks to hundreds of unique donors and GlobalGiving.
So, we want to express our deep gratitude to you for your support in a difficult time for the whole world.
Thanks to your care and concern for children with cerebral palsy, we have raised almost US $ 13,000.
And now let's move on to what has been done in our three rehabilitation centers recently. Finally, we restored the work of the centers in an offline format, which was very pleased with the children, their parents and the staff of the centers. In our three rehabilitation centers, 531 children had rehabilitation in three months. We would like to share some of the successes of our children.
- learned to hold their heads - 17 children
- learned to sit - 16 children
- took their first steps - 11 children
- first words - 34 children
- learned to speak simple phrases - 11 children.
We also organized trainings for employees of all rehabilitation centers. Over the course of the week, certified emotional intelligence coaches developed competencies in staff emotion management, taught patient interactions, strengthened corporate spirit, and worked on prevent burnout.
The previous year was very difficult for everyone, including our employees: many of them and their loved ones suffered from COVID, some lost their relatives. For some time, the activities of rehabilitation centers were suspended due to the epidemic, which led to the inevitability of financial difficulties for employees. These and other problems affected the emotional background and mood of the collectives, and in order to treat children, especially children with severe disabilities, a positive attitude and a friendly atmosphere are needed. Therefore, interactive courses on emotional intelligence, leadership and team building were organized.
Although, it would seem, why does a doctor need emotional intelligence, especially if he has excellent professional knowledge? After all, almost every employee of our centers is regularly trained, has European certificates confirming the possession of rehabilitation methods and techniques. However, even the smartest doctor, if he does not know how to find an approach to a little patient, win over his parents, openly communicate and cooperate with colleagues, he will not be a good doctor. This is exactly what the coaches worked on, organizing the analysis of situations, correctional contests, creative tasks replaced physical exercises.
After the training, the specialists noted that these were important courses, no less important than professional ones, and assured that now they will help children with even greater persistence in achieving goals. This means that the courses were successful: a great desire to help the patient is the highest manifestation of the emotional intelligence of a doctor.
Concluding the report, we would like to once again thank GlobalGiving for good intentions, and our loyal donors for their invaluable contribution to the health of babies with disobedient bodies.
Take care of yourself.
Respectfully yours, the team of "Kasietti Zhol".
