8 550 BGN are the funds raised through the donation initiative of the Rector of UNWE Prof. Dr. Dimitar Dimitrov on the occasion of his 60th Anniversary. Prof. Dimitrov invited his guests to participate in a charitable cause and donate the amount intended for gifts to the St. Sofia Specialized Rehabilitation Hospital for Children with Cerebral Palsy. Already during the party 7000 BGN were collected /copy of the payment slip on the picture below/. An additional 1,550 BGN were received to the hospital's account - it was announced by the Accounting Department of the Specialized Hospital.
"I would like to express my thankfulness to all my guests for their compassion. The UNWE can unite people for a cause and we proved it together. We succeeded to do something meaningful and good that provides an opportunity for better rehabilitation and socialization of children", outlined Prof. Dimitrov.
"I want more people to learn about this gesture which was unique", said Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ivan Chavdarov, Director of the Specialized Hospital for Children with Cerebral Palsy /in the picture above on the left/. "Due to the kindness of the people at the UNWE, the friends and official guests of Prof. Dimitrov, it will be purchased a special robot for upper limb immobilization which is extremely important in the process of rehabilitation of children."
The price of the special robot for upper limb immobilization is around 10 000 BGN. Anyone who would like to help raise the few remaining funds can do so via the hospital's donation account:
