Charitable Foundation for assistance in providing medical and social and rehabilitative care for children with severe trauma and its consequences

Joint project with Johnson'®s Baby



From 1 to 31 October, Johnson’®s Baby and the Charity Foundation of providing medical and social rehabilitation and care for children with severe trauma and its consequences (The Fund of Children's Dr. Roshal) hold “good month”, the purpose of which will be fund- raising for the rehabilitation of children in the Scientific Research Institute of Emergency Children's Surgery and Traumatology of the Department of Health in Moscow. This unique medical institution, annually, receives more than three thousand children with cranial and spinal injuries, 160-180 – children of which with severe neurotrauma, and they are in need of long-term care and complex multi-stage rehabilitation.


Children with severe traumatic brain injury may be in the long-term reduced state of consciousness, be fed through a gastrostomy tube to breathe through a tracheostomy. Children with severe spinal injury with spinal cord injury have no less problem . Although, they are fully conscious, but are immobilized for a long time and often forced to feed and breathe through a specially installed pipe. Worldwide treatment and rehabilitation of these patients are very expensive and a weighty role in the financing of this aid belongs to charitable funds. In Russia, the mandatory health insurance covers a limited number of days of treatment of these patients in the acute period in hospital (30 days - in the intensive care unit and 45 days – in a specialist unit), so it is extremely insufficient. It’s impossible to move these children to any rehabilitation centers, because they are not ready to take such a heavy contingent of patients requiring intensive care, treatment and rehabilitation. It’s impossible to discharge them home as well. Payment on the CHI is completed. Next free admission to the hospital, paid from the compulsory health insurance will be available no earlier than in a month, and a limited number of days will be even less than before. As a result, the child's serious illness burden on the shoulders of parents, forcing them to look for sponsors to send the child abroad for treatment, with the help of numerous foundations. In addition, children are in need of modern technical means of rehabilitation, care and household items, but they are very expensive and they are not always covered with the state funds, allocated as an invalidity benefit.


TheFoundation of Children's Dr. Roshal, which was created in 2014 at the Institute, organize highly skilled rehabilitation, medical and social assistance to those children with additional financial resources. The main objective of the Foundation - ensuring Russia's high-quality medical and rehabilitative care for children affected by severe injuries, as well as attracting the best talent and unique technologies.


The project « Together for Child Safety » and Johnson’®s Baby - the flagship brand of the company Johnson & Johnson, have become partners of the Fund and they are directly involved in raising funds for the rehabilitation of these children, helping to actualize the theme of child safety.


Within «the good month», in 10 Russian regions, there is a promotional campaign, when 1 ruble from each purchase of Johnson’®s Baby products, is directed to the treatment and rehabilitation of these children at the Research Institute of Emergency Children's Surgery and Traumatology. It is planned to help children from different regions of Russia, with children from Murmansk, Pskov, Irkutsk Regions and Moscow, have became the heroes of the charity campaign.
