At one month anniversary, the Association Zi de Bine, curator of social causes, changes its original concept of supporting one cause per month for 12 months.
Taking into account the context of the coronavirus pandemic “On your birthday, help a man rise” will become for an indefinite period “#scutpentruspitale” (#shieldforhospitals). All funds raised by the association will be directed to hospitals in Petroşani, Sinaia, Rădăuți, Craiova, Buzau, Suceava, Targu Mureş, Brașov, Campulung and Bucharest, in the form of materials they need to fight the virus safely.
Melania Medeleanu, Association Zi de bine, says: “What if every man got involved and donated to the hospital in city or town where he was born or lives now, doing something that gives him meaning, something that will help at this point so unusual but that will remain for the benefit of all community for the years to come? The creative concept of the initial campaign “Who is born in April, May, June” becomes these days “Who is born in Petroşani, Sinaia, Rădăuți, Craiova, Buzau, Suceava, Campulung, Bucharest, Brașov or Targu Mureș”.
The fundraising campaign #scutpentruspitale continues as long as it takes, in an attempt to protect those on the front line, the most exposed among us: doctors, nurses, stretcher-bearers. The association calls on local communities, citizens and companies, to help as they can, through donations of materials or cash donations, from which it will purchase the necessary equipment and send it to hospitals.
What is the need?
The Association Zi de Bine has compiled a list of medical equipment, requirements for 12 hospitals that need help, a list which aims to cover with the support of donors, individuals or companies.
The list includes essential products such as: medical beds, treatment tables, UV wipers, laryngoscopes, intubation kits, mechanical ventilation equipment, syringe pumps, surgical vacuum cleaners, decontamination booths, rapid tests for COVID, suction probes, ventilation system filters, protective combinations, single-use waterproof medical gowns, waterproof medical aprons, surgical masks, protective masks, all sizes of single gloves latex use with or without powder, goggles, liquid soap, contactless thermometers, pulsometers, disposable bots, UV lamps, disinfection solutions for surfaces and objects, and more.
