Friends, there are news about little Kolya from Lugansk who has purulent meningitis and requires an immediate operation, about which I wrote yesterday.
Almost immediately after the publication, my personal number exploded with countless proposals and advice. Most of them referred us to these organizations which already turned us down. Unfortunately, Kolya’s problems are serious and chances uncertain…But he still has them. In addition to the pain in his head, he has a whole range of other ailments.
In the end, we were put in touch with Doktor Liza representatives on the Donbass, and we already provided them with all the necessary documentation. We’re now pursuing this option and keeping our fingers crossed.
I was also contacted by several caring people, including my friends who are, if need be, willing to support the operation with major sums of money. To be honest, when I wrote about Kolya, I didn’t think we could manage it. I was upset to tears because, in spite of having irritated everyone with the endless pleas for help someone, people continue reading this pessimistic blog and trust me and our team.
Let me say this again:
SO FAR we are not collecting money for the operation!
Kolya will be in hospital, and we’ll soon know more information about his health and the situation with Doctor Liza foundation will also become clearer.
But if you want to help Kolya’s family, and he has two younger brothers and a father in retirement, please label any transfers “Kolya-meningitis.”
Thanks to all who responded!
If you want to help the people of the Donbass, write me in person through LiveJournal, facebook, V Kontakte, or email: email@example.com. Paypal address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
PS: Please don’t take offense but we don’t provide our charges’ contact information to ANYONE except doctors, well-known foundations, and those whom we trust personally. We are responsible for those we help. Every so often, “kind” people appear who want to collect money for the people under our care. There are precedents of them posting photos from our photo reports as if they were their own (I’ve written about that before. There are also plainly sick people who will harass you with their phone calls and psychological issues.
