In Aid of CHD Kids
Annually more than 20000 babies with congenital heart defect (CHD kids) are born in Russia. The earlier the defect is identified the bigger chance of timely successful treatment exists. If CHD has been operated in time, the child has every opportunity to become perfectly healthy. But very often the parents do not manage to collect a total sum for the operation on their own. In that case the stories of the children are published on our website, in order that you get an opportunity to give the children their lives.
The project «Excellent Students» was started in aid of the children, who are being brought up in families having many children and not being sufficiently provided for financial resources, in order to create equal opportunities for getting education and developing their personalities. The scholarship at a rate of RUB 30000 may be spent on education requirements, for instance, on buying computer technologies, books, school furniture, on charge for circles and extra classes or on online education.
The Team of Pomogi.Org
Director General: Sarra Nezhelskaya
Full name: Elena Sergeyevna Nezhelskaya.
I have a degree in psychology and a second degree in PR and advertising.
I have a 12-year-old son Dmitry, diagnosed with ICP, infantile cerebral paralysis. Until 2003 I worked in the advertising department of the Ecco-Ros company, but in November 2003, after my younger sister died of AIDS, I resigned and established the Dobroye Delo (Kind Deed) children's charity. Alexander Trif, CEO at High Technologies Bank, was the organization's founder. Since then I have raised about two million rubles for charity.
My friends and colleagues call me Sarra, after the Biblical character Sarah. I am a co-founder and Director General of the Pomogi.Org Internet charity fund. I hope to change the Russian attitude towards people in need.
I was born in 1982. At university I specialized in philology and now I’m studying for a degree in economics. I started working for charity projects quite by chance. I work for Pomogi.Org because it makes me feel I can really help a sick child and do something to make the world better.
Valentina graduated from a statistics high school in 1968, the economy faculty of the Soviet Trade Institute in 1978, as well as courses for accountants in 1997 and professional accountants in 2002. She used to work as an economist and director at a food plant, but in 1999 started keeping accounts for non-commercial organizations.
«I have always helped people because it is natural for me, and then at 50 I changed my profession. My motto is: If you help at least one person, you have not lived your life in vain.»
