Reading support "Donate through reading".

Posted by | Nov 01, 2019 |

On October 23rd, the ladies from IW club Shumen handed a special monitor to the Neonatology department in the Shumen Hospital.

The new equipment monitors the condition and the main life indicators of new born babies with health problems. There is also a continuous record of cardiac activity and oxygen saturation in the blood. In life-threatening conditions, an acoustic signal is issued and resuscitation actions are initiated to save the life of the child. The donation, worth BGN 2720, is the seventh fulfilled cause “Give a chance for the life of infants with serious health problems” under the project “Donate through reading” realized through the website which started on May 11, 2016.

A good deed materialized by children who read books, took tests on them, and so earned credits to donate them for a cause for the benefit of other children! We thank the reading children and young people for their work and kindness! They are reading donors and give these little kids a chance to grow up! We just made it happen by creating the site and providing the money.

A total of 49 children have donated their credits to this cause, 11 of which are from the town of Shumen, the rest are from the following settlements: Sofia, Varna, Burgas, Ruse, Haskovo, Belene, Targovishte, Svishtov, Asenovgrad, Sliven, Zlatitsa, Pirdop , Pomorie, Radnevo, Chelopech.Up to now children have read 2,234 books and filled correctly the tests on those books.  This is an incentive to upload new titles of test books and new, child-inspiring causes.

Another cause of organizing the Children's Basketball Festival has collected its credits and will be realized within days.

So far, four more active causes are presented on the site, which are yet to be realized: "Adopt a book" - Donation Program of the National Library "St. Cyril and Methodius"; "Become a Big Family - Guide Dog School" - Support for the Four Paws Foundation to change the life of another blind man; "Newborn premature babies and those with congenital digestive problems need your support" - Infusion pump for feeding newborn babies with problems for the Neonatology ward at the hospital of Shumen; "To understand faster, to go further, to know more" - Monitor for an interactive classroom at Vassil Levski school in the town of Stara Zagora.What will be the next realized cause is to be decided by the reading students!Everything is in their hands!You can get a complete idea of the site and the project by visiting
