The “Mobile Clinic”
The “Mobile Clinic” project is the work with HIV-infected children and children from parents with HIV status, as well as adults with HIV / AIDS living in the Kyiv region. Up to current moment the project has 387 of such children, 87 of them are already taking ART therapy, 300 children are born from parents with HIV status and have very weak immune system, for these children the access to treatment is a matter of life! This project we do together with the children’s center for HIV / AIDS at NDSB “Ohmatdyt”. Every Monday mobile team consisting of the pediatrician, the nurse and the social worker travels to one of the district centers of the Kyiv region. Private consulting room examines child and prescribes treatment. Also, children are given medicines and baby food that we buy specifically for the Kyiv region. Nurse takes the blood sample for analysis, but not only from children but also from adults, because to come to make analysis at the regional AIDS Centre is not affordable to all, most of the families are very poor and they don’t have money for food and clothing not saying about money to travel to the regional AIDS center. The social worker in his turn provides qualified advice on all aspects of life with HIV / AIDS. Charity Fund “Help for the sake of Future” the first and only to date the organization that provides such services in the 14 districts of the Kyiv region, as we have signed a cooperation agreement with district hospitals for 10 years. Also the families who have been able to come to the Kyiv Regional Center of AIDS can get the medicines in our office, which is a 10-minute walk from the center. The social worker will give everything they need at the spot. Join us, if you have a desire to help all these kids and together we will give the families the hope of life. Any aid is very important for them! (support this project).
