BORICA AD Donates Total of BGN 55,000 to Three Child Causes

Payment and card operator BORICA engages in the fight against COVID-19 by supporting children, their families and the caregivers.

The management of the company decided to donate BGN 35,000 to the University Obstetric-Gynaecological Hospital Maychin Dom (Mother’s Home)The supplies will be used to purchase medical supplies to protect the hospital's team, mothers and their newborns. These are surgical masks, multi-layer protective overalls, reusable masks, safety glasses, antibacterial carpets, several types of protective gloves and more.

Expecting a baby in the family is usually associated with excitement and anxiety, and in the current epidemiological setting, physicians' responsibility to patients is extremely high. "The strict monitoring of pregnancy, the protection of the life and health of women who have given birth and their babies in the context of a pandemic is a major challenge that our medics face on a daily basis," Prof. Ivan Kostov, Executive Director of the hospital, said.

BORICA continues its support for  Our Premature Children Foundation. "Being a parent of a premature baby is painful enough in itself, and being a parent of a premature baby during a pandemic is difficult to describe," the Foundation said. The company decided to donate an amount of BGN 10,000 to fund the Foundation's online initiatives: psychological support groups and remote therapeutic counselling. These include consulting with early childhood development specialists - speech therapists, psychologists, ergotherapists, special educators, as well as virtual meetings with neonatologists and pediatricians. At this point, remote counselling is extremely valuable and, at the same time, completely free of charge for families who traditionally visit the Little Wonders Child Development Centre, but are currently hindered. 

BORICA will finance its long-term partner SOS Children's Villages Bulgaria with BGN 10,000. The funds will be invested in the emergency repair of the family-type accommodation centrD in Veliko Tarnovo, which houses 20 young people between the ages of 14 and 18. With the current restrictions on leaving home, more than ever, these children need a cozy home and good conditions for the normal course of their distance learning.

The Company's team continues to monitor the situation in this country and the calls of various hospital institutions and non-governmental organisations for financial support, and is ready to participate in subsequent donation campaigns.
