About this project


Dear Friends and Supporters,

We are excited to announce our next campaign! This time, we chose to support the pediatric ward at the regional hospital “Sv. Petka” in Vidin! The district of Vidin is situated in Northwestern Bulgaria – the poorest region in the country and in the European Union. The pediatric department urgently needs the following vital equipment, which is currently non-existent or obsolete:

  • An ultrasound
  • Two monitors for the vital signs of children, with the possibility to measuring blood pressure as well
  • Ten inhalers
  • Portable apparatus for blood and gas analysis at the children’s beds
  • Portable apparatus for measuring blood sugar levels at the children’s beds
  • Four perfusers
  • Three electronic scales for weighing newborns
  • Four pediatric blood pressure monitors with a set of 4 cuffs each, with varying sizes for different ages
  • Three finger pulse oximeters
  • Four oxygen tents for newborns

Our goal is to raise $120,000! With the first $75,000, we will support the pediatric ward at the regional hospital in Vidin as detailed above. Funds collected above this target will be used to support the pediatric ward at the regional hospital“Stamen Iliev”” in the city of Montana, also in Northwestern Bulgaria, which is in dire need of vital equipment as well. We hope and believe that with YOUR help we can achieve this.

Please support our new campaign by making a donation via PayPal www.paypal.me/childrenofbulgaria, on Facebook www.facebook.com/childrencharitybg, or by sending a check to Children of Bulgaria, Inc, 36 Harrison Dr, Larchmont, NY 10538. Donations are tax-deductible in U.S.A.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

And just like that, on November 3rd, the regional hospital in Montana, Bulgaria, received its donations. The clinicians can hardly contain the joy of receiving this new equipment.

The medical team at the hospital sends their gratitude to the supporters of Children of Bulgaria for the delivery of the anticipated medical equipment. The hospital’s pediatric department received a mobile x-ray machine, two monitors for vitals tracking, two infusion pumps, and an aspirator. The neonatal ventilator will be delivered very soon to benefit the hospital’s NICU. The mobile x-ray is very convenient, easy to manipulate, and reliable. It is crucial to use with patients who endure restrictive mobility. The monitors track vital functions such as oxygen level, saturation, and heart rate. The infusion pumps allow for the precise administration of medications into the pediatric patient’s IV.
