Donation Fund for Premature Born Children in Bulgaria
What do premature babies need in order to survive? 1 out of every 10 babies in Bulgaria is born prematurely, with prematurity levels in some cities well above the country average of nearly 18%. Each year 6,000 babies are born too early and unprepared for life outside the mother's womb. Due to their low weight and not fully developed organs and systems, they need specialized care to survive and develop. Unfortunately, in some settlements in Bulgaria neonatal wards are not well equipped for the needs of their youngest patients. From 2012 until now, Our Premature Children Foundation has donated life-saving equipment to more than 30 wards in the country. Although incubators are among the most popular equipment associated with such campaigns and they are undoubtedly of the utmost importance for every NICU, it turns out that there is no less need for resuscitation tables, thermowells, monitors for vital signs, pulse oximeters, infusion pumps, including, for our great astonishment, consumables such as better tubes for intubation of premature babies. Within the “Big Wonders for Little Heroes” campaign, we aim to raise funding and ensure that premature babies are receiving the best medical care and access to modern medical equipment indefinitely of where they were born. We rely on your help to make this possible. “Our Premature Children” Foundation is in constant contact with the teams of neonatal wards in the country who are taking care of premature and high-risk newborns. In our work on each campaign, we conduct a survey among the departments across the country, including among small settlements. A study of the foundation, which took place in October 2018, highlighted a number of basic types of medical equipment of which the departments are suffering a serious shortage.

Complete Care for Children in Crisis - Casa Bernabé Orphanage, School & Clinic Fund
Children's home, transitional living, vocational programs, medical clinic, families united and a school! Casa Bernabe Overview https://youtu.be/xH5qfG8Nqgc THE REALITY In 2015, Guatemala had the second-highest rate of child murders in the world. Of the crimes against children that get reported—including murder, rape, kidnapping—most go unpunished (88%). It is estimated that 4 out of 10 children experience sexual abuse. An estimated 2 in 5 children are malnourished. Among indigenous children, that rises to 4 in 5. UNICEF estimates that there are more than 370,000 orphans in Guatemala and at least 5,000 children live on the streets of the capital, abandoned by mothers who are too poor to keep them. Five out of 10 students who enter primary school in urban areas complete primary school, as opposed to only two out of 10 in rural areas. These are not just numbers, these are lives and this is the load that the children at Casa Bernabé are carrying with them. THE GOOD NEWS Casa Bernabé Ministries exists to provide hope for vulnerable children in Guatemala, both within the walls of its campus and also within the surrounding community. The ministry seeks to provide the framework needed for each child to step out from the past trauma of their lives by providing physical needs, medical and psychological care, and spiritual guidance. Children are ministered to in church and youth group and educated in the Christian school on campus. Lives are transformed as the ties of generational poverty and abuse are broken. By working with the Guatemalan court systems and biological families Casa Bernabé Ministries is leading the way in Guatemalan Global Orphan Care.
