In the fall of 2013, during a visit to Budila, a FCG communiy, our colleague Elena discovered Lavinia, a severely disabled 5 year old girl who couldn’t walk. In November, Elena found a private donor who gave Lavinia a wheelchair and she started to attend preschool regularly.
Lavinia also suffers from strabismus, but with the help of T4BH and local authorities she received a pair of glasses that will help her solve her visual problems. The City Hall provided transportation to the ophthalmologist in the nearest city, social services accompanied Lavinia and her grandma and GSK covered the costs.
