Friends, if you can spare some cash, consider donating to this noble cause. The VERA Hospice Fund ( has been active since 2006 and, apart from providing relief to seriously ill children and their family, they are also lobbying to make certain facilities become part of regular medical coverage by the Russian government.

Their newest campaing is providing air-supply ventilators to children who have trouble breathing due to neuromuscular and other conditions. Absence of these air-supply devices means that many children face living in a facility, away from parents, siblings and friends, often with the sole goal of surviving.

Donating to this project will help these children to live their lives, however ill, with their loved-ones.
