Caravana cu Medici
Caravana cu Medici launched the first Romanian pilot project for screening colorectal cancer and is aiming to raise 5000 USD to support their efforts. The screening is considered the main method for fighting against the disease. Unfortunately, in Romania, there is no national strategy for colorectal cancer prevention and no screening program (like there is for cervical cancer). The money raised will help Caravana cu Medici test approximately 450 asymptomatic people with ages between 45-75. Patients who test positive will be later guided for further investigations at the closest gastroenterology department, where, after a colonoscopy, a potential malign lesion can be confirmed or excluded.
Daruieste Viata launched the campaign Together for a chance at childhood which aims to increase the quality of life for children who undergo hemodialysis at the Marie Curie Hospital Center. To do so, they would like to purchase 2 high-performance machines that will reduce the adverse effects of hemodialysis. The hospital center is currently equipped with 7 hemodialysis machines, 3 of which have exceeded the number of hours of hemodialysis they can process. The other 4 are technologically outdated. This wearing of the machines increases the adverse effects of hemodialysis on the patients. Because of these conditions, Daruieste Viata would like to support the children needing this treatment by supplying the center with high-performance machines.
