A CHILD
IN NEED
RUSSIA

MEDICAL AID

In 2011, 11 year old Nurilo migrated with his family from Uzbekistan to Yekaterinburg, Russia, with the hope of a better life. Some years later, Nurilo an active, healthy young boy began to bleed frequently from his nose and mouth. As migrants, Nurilo’s family did not qualify for free healthcare in Russia.

 

After many months his parents managed to gather enough money  to take him to a doctors surgery; the results were devastating. Nurilo was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia, a rare blood cancer.

 

Despite there being hospitals in Russia that could treat Nurilo with the necessary life saving treatment he urgently required, he was refused treatment simply because he was a migrant.

SUPPORT FOR THE NEGLECTED

At Olive Grove Foundation we are well versed with taking tragic occurrences into our own hands, providing help where seemingly no help is available.

 

We launched an online appeal to raise funds for specialist treatment and financial support for Nurilo and his family, in a bid to save a young life and a family from the unbearable anguish of losing their child.

WHAT WE DID

Our medical aid team worked closely with Nurilo’s family to source the best available treatment in Russia. Nurilo and his mother were taken to a hospital in ?? where he began to receive blood transfusions while our team searched for a suitable bone marrrow donor. The family’s accommodation, food and travel expenses were also taken care of.

 

Nurilo’s condition improved vastly and he is in a good, stable condition awaiting a bone marrow transplant.
