Nisporeni hospital renovation (cont’d)

In just 2 days we have raised 1,600 lei or $ 81 dollars …
… This is how much it costs to get a new toilet that is so necessary for the pediatric ward of the regional hospital in Nisporeni !
See the below picture where we compared a simple bathroom / WC in the US and how it looks in the pediatric ward of Nisporeni ! You can make a difference too by making a small donation here : Generosity
 Irina Basarabeanu (one of the founders) says: “I am oftenly asked: Why renovate a section of a children’s hospital? Why Sweet Medicine? Why do we even care? And to all I give the same answer: Once you become a parent, you start caring for all the children in the world as if they’re your own, and a parent’s suffering becomes your own as well!
As a parent, with some life experience behind us, we can easily understand why any other parent or any person in the country would be skeptical or indecisive regarding the success of this project … And we know how hard it is to earn the trust of people who were at least once disappointed by the system in which they live in.
But we do this because we care about your children, our children, and the next generation!
We are not making these renovations for the benefit of the state, or the hospital or even that of the doctors who sworn in to save our children’s lives. We do it for our children, because their rights matter most! Our goal is to alleviate a child’s suffering who endures a serious illness and / or a painful treatment!
Join us and our cause- we need each and one of you!”

Christmas Campaign UPDATE

Greetings dear friends! we have some great news: Our Christmas campaign was initiated to help implement our Mentoring program, but in December we had the pleasant opportunity to create new friendships through which we managed to bring a smile to some children who need us so much. Specifically, we managed to distribute donations received from Mara Woman, EduJoc and Olsa Shoes to 9 families (30 children total). These families included the teens and parents of 2 children (http://loveiskindcharity.com/case-1/), mom with 2 small kids & grandma with grandkids (http://loveiskindcharity.com/case-2/), as well as the family with 6 kids…4 of them adopted (http://www.facebook.com/l.php…).

Also , Love is Kind has made a donation of five hats from Mara Woman, filled with candy, to the mother with five children who recently fought against judicial injustice in the case of domestic violence (http://politik.md/…/video-o-orfana-cu-cinci…/35800/) …more pictures form this case coming soon! We have two hats and a pair of shoes that will be distributed to children in the oncology ward at the Mother and Child Center .
So, with your help we made so many children happy and for this we thank you!
Also, we would like to bring thousands of thanks to all of our volunteers who donated their time and finances to make all of this possible!

Outrocious hospital conditions…

Here are some videos from the Nisporeni hospital. If the pictures shown until now haven’t convinced you yet – please see the video and see for yourself that these hospital conditions should be alarming to the whole country! Listen to these testimonies from moms who have been hospitalized there – no proper hygienic procedures followed, old beds and mattresses, lack of warm water, are these conditions appropriate for a hospital?

Thank you to the local tv station – Albasat TV which is informing the public about the state of this hospital.

Watch here: Albasat TV.

To donate towards the Sweet Medicine project, you can do so here: Generosity.

Happy New Year Everyone! We find ourselves today at the beginning of a new year and at an end of another of our campaigns: The campaign « In the Spirit of Christmas » is about to start the implementation of the mentoring project for a group of vulnerable children from Moldova. Before that, Love is Kind plans to surprise its beneficiaries with various presents.

This week our partner – EduJoc offered to donate games and toys specifically targeted to the children’s ages. At the same time EduJoc wants to continue the fundraising through the sales of the below sets in January and February! We encourage you to buy from EduJoc and to make not just your kinds happy, but also those who live in difficulties! We thank you in advance! We also thank EduJoc for their support!

Happy week-end!

Even though we strive to help more families in need, and start new fundraising campaigns, Love is Kind does not forget those who we have helped previously. And, in particular we’d like to THANK Lucia Plamadeala, who donated 400 MD lei for the 2 kids from our previous cause: Victor and Ecaterina. This money will go towards covering their travel expenses to go and see a dentist for a year (free dental services are offered by Tăbîrţă family, THANK YOU!).
Once again- big THANK YOU to everyone who helps us in our causes (current, as well as previous)…we couldn’t have done it without you!

Gift of a Lifetime…update

Dear friends,

Together with CCF we managed to buy a home for the single mother (Diana) with two little children! (Gift of a Lifetime project) They moved into their new home and they are so excited about it. There is still some paperwork that needs to be done but hopefully we’ll be able to receive all the necessary documents within a month. The cost of the house was $1,990 of which we contributed $620 and HHC (CCF UK) provided with the rest, a total of $1,270.

We have also transferred the rest of the donated money from GoFundMe to CCF – a total of $612 (net amount w/out the transfer fees). These funds will be used in the purchase of a house for the grandma and her two grandkids!
