- SECOND HOME

Especially in the beginning many families in Georgia are overextended, when they have a child with disabilities. Children with disabilities are often left by their parents and are at risk to become orphans. A strong stigma can still be seen against children with disabilities in Georgia and often they are kept at home or behind the walls of orphanages and suffer from proper support, medical and social. In the end if even the orphanage ist no longer able to take care of them, they are transferred to a hospital. In most cases the children are in a very bad condition.

Our project aims to approach European standards on palliative units at hospitals. We advocated for the expansion of the palliative department at "Children's New Clinic" in Tbilisi and trained the staff in holistic treatments according to the needs of the children. We invited qualified personnel from abroad  - organized by the Network of International Samaritan - to train the nurses, doctors and the hospital management in the handling and holistic care and treatment of children with disablities.
To encourage the children and provide them an alternative to their constantly bed-ridden daily life, appropriate child-friendly spaces were planned like a full medical adapted bath, a therapy room, a lounge and a family room, financed by the ASB Germany. They are completely suited to their needs and will allow better nursing and therapies by psychologists, physio- and occupational therapists. In the end the project also aims to improve the communication between the doctors and nurses and to establish a  consulting service for parents.
