President Rumen Radev thanked every member of the Bulgarian Christmas society who donated funds to help the poor children struggling with genetic diseases throughout the country.
He noted, ”The noble cause of “Bulgarian Christmas” has become a tradition over the past twenty years. “Bulgarian Christmas” is much more than a donation campaign.
President Radev believes, ”We are a civilized society built on humane values. It is an investment in our most significant capital – the health of Bulgarian children”.
President Radev emphasizes that the charity initiative has reached a budget of over 3 million. The leva has helped 517 children with severe chronic illnesses and donated equipment to 22 hospitals across the country.
On November 30, President announced the 20th consecutive start of the Bulgarian Christmas campaign in Veliko Tarnovo, which will be dedicated to children with rare genetic diseases next year.
The head of state appreciated Dr Stefan Cherkezov, a specialist in Veliko Tarnovo, for their dedication to children’s health.
President Radev added, “Thousands of Bulgarian children are cared for in this hospital with over 150 years of history. We need to pay more and more attention to their health to have a decent future as a nation”.
He assured that the caretaker administration would do more to help the many children in Bulgaria who were suffering from severe genetic disorders than the Christmas organization.
He urged the populace to give something in order to brighten someone’s Christmas who is dealing with terrible illnesses and other hardships.
The President also praised the humanitarian ministry’s efforts to help and cherish children.
