About this project

We aim to help children with special needs and children with hearing impairment, in two centers in Pleven county and town of Plovdiv. These are children with a special need for assistance, as in recent years the state has integrated more and more children with special needs into regular local schools. The children who remain in the special centers have particularly severe illnesses and cannot be easily integrated, and the budgets of the centers have been sharply reduced and are not enough for the maintenance and procurement of special facilities. 𝐎𝐮𝐫 𝐠𝐨𝐚𝐥 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐬𝐞 $𝟏𝟎𝟎,𝟎𝟎𝟎 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐜𝐚𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐢𝐠𝐧 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐭 𝐛𝐨𝐭𝐡 𝐜𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐬!

Please get involved with a donation and/or matching gifts from your employers here:

In 2023, your donations will first help the children o the 𝐂𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐒𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐄𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐒𝐮𝐩𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭 “𝐋𝐞𝐝𝐚 𝐌𝐢𝐥𝐞𝐯𝐚“, town of Dolni Dabnik, Plevensko. The center educates and treats children with mental retardation, autistic spectrum, physical disabilities, etc., from the age of 5 to the 12th grade. Most of the students use the dormitory and are at the Center all year round. In addition, children from regular schools come to use the facilities and equipment. The material base is very old. Our organization wishes to raise funds for modern equipment so that the children can be fully supported. They are in dire need of new bedrooms and classrooms furniture, а bathroom for the disabled and specialized offices. One dream of the team at the Center is to purchase and install a salt room that has multiple benefits for children with special needs.

If we achieve our financial goal, with the rest of the funds we will also help the 𝐒𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐒𝐜𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐥 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐂𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐧 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐈𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐇𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 ” 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐟. Dr. 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐲𝐚𝐧 𝐁𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐨𝐯”, 𝐏𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐝𝐢𝐯. About 100 children, from 2 years old to 12th grade, are educated there, half of whom live permanently in the dormitory. The school needs the furnishing of an occupational therapy office and the renovation of the students’ bedrooms. The occupational therapy office would help hearing-impaired children improve their self-care skills and achieve overall self-reliance and independence.

Please help and donate for the hearing-impaired children in the special home in Plovdiv!

For those living in the US, your donations are tax-deductible, and some employers match your donations. Get involved to reach our goal and all together help the Children of Bulgaria!

Thank you!

Merry Christmas and a Happy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year 2023!
