Oana from Caravana cu Medici told me that when COVID started affecting Romania more heavily, they knew that message of support were about to come from the civil society. In a matter of days, dozens of people reached out, trying to see how they can help and contribute in stopping the spread of covid.

Dr. Vasi Rădulescu's campaign aimed at purchasing a PCR Testing Device for INSMC Bucharest - children hospital. With an initial target of 250.000RON, the campaign surpassed the desired sum with 15.123RON. Having raised this great sum of money, the procedures of purchasing the device started. Initially there were two options, one from the United States and one from Europe. With the help of volunteers that endlessly worked on bringing this device inside the country, INSMC can finally test at a very rapid rate with great precision.

Since the acquisition of the device, INSMC has been able to diagnose not only COVID, but other pathologies as well, being able to treat them efficiently without further complications.

Caravana Cu Medici


HEALTHCARE: The "Caravana cu Medici" Association was founded in 2014 by 5 resident doctors who noted the lack of basic medical services in the rural area, the total lack of medical education, and the totally non-preventive mentality of the Romanians.
