We also purchased two electronic thermometers, an oxygen saturation monitor and two heaters for Kalinovka. Apart from that, we continue covering the costs of gas for healthcare needs in Kalinovka, with UAH 800 (50 US dollars) spent for this purpose in October. And, of course, we keep on paying for the doctor’s work in Kalinovka.
On October 3, we arranged a meeting dedicated to the issue of palliative care to the children of the Zaporozhzhye region. The meeting was attended by representatives of the Social Security and Healthcare Department as well as guests from Kharkov where the palliative care delivered to children is one step ahead of Zaporozhzhye. As a result of this meeting, we still have the same requests – to allow the transfer of children with most severe pathologies from Solnyshko Children’s Home to the orphanages of the social security system only when the necessary conditions are created for them is such institutions.
The regular session of the community council was held in Kalinovka on October 6. Apart from other things, the attendees discussed the issues related to health care, the quality of water, the condition of transport for employees, staff training and leisure time of the orphanage residents.
In the last three days of October, a trainer from Lviv held a training session dedicated to atypical behavior of children with special needs in Zaporozhzhye orphanage-children’s home.
