MOL Romania starts the child healing social responsibility program

The Community Foundation and MOL Romania are announcing a new element of the ‘May I help?’ social responsibility program, the purpose of which is the improving of the health of children.

In this way, those civilian organizations can obtain support, which organize programs involving emotional or art therapy for children suffering of chronic diseases, living with a handicap or recovering after a long hospital treatment.

One applying organization can get a sum of 20,000 RON forefinancing for such a program that they wish to carry out in the period November 23, 2009 and October 23, 2010. The requirements for the support can be handed in until October 23.

The judging of the applications which are handed in will be done by Enikő Albert -Lőrincz, professor of the Babeş – Bolyai University from
Cluj – Napoca, department of Social Care.
The applications that she considers worth supporting will be ranked by a jury made up of specialists, whose members are Dr.Violeta Stan, neuropsychiatrist for children, professor of the Medical School from Timişoara (chairwoman),
Dr. Nicolae Hâncu, professor of the Iuliu Haţieganu Medical School from Cluj – Napoca, Chairman of the Romanian Diabetes Federation, member of the Romanian Medical Academy, Csaba Böjte, Franciscan monk, chairman of the St. Francis Foundation from Deva, Cătălin  Ştefănescu, media specialist, presenter of  the talk show entitled ’Garantat 100 %’ [ 100 % Guaranteed] on the RTV1 and Éva Ráduly – Zörgő, child psychologist, associate professor of the Babeş – Bolyai University. The final list of the supported ones is approved by the Board of Trustees of the Community Foundation.

’MOL takes an active part in the life of the community and this is carried out through social responsibility programs. The new program starting in 2009 is meant to civilian organizations, but with it we would like to help children, young people living with a deficiency or children suffering of diseases. The ’May I help ?’ program  has existed for exceptional young people in sports or art; now the time has come to turn with the ’May I help?’ question towards those young people to whom life has limited possibilities because of their state of health’, declared Zsolt Szalay, coutry chairman of MOL Romania.

’If a clown appears on the corridor of the hospital, the referred children can forget their disease, pain. If an association organizes a camp for children with diabetes, they can have such experiences, from which they have been isolated earlier because of their disease. Through this application, there appears a source of aid, where it was very difficult to get sponsors’, declared Árpád Gazda, chairman of the Community Foundation.  

The ’May I help? – Child Healing’ Program is organized by the Community Foundation with the money supplied by MOL Romania. The text of the announcement and the application form can be found on the websites http:// www.pentrucomunitate.ro
