Promoted by Dr. Vilaplana, the UTE has been fundraising money to buy personal care products for TB inpatients staying at the Serveis Clinics Unit (SSCC), in Barcelona. This clinic is specialized in managing TB patients at risk of poverty or social exclusion. The SSCC and the UTE are already collaborating, and we do expect to be part of shared research projects very soon.
We are happy to announce that in one week we raised 229,95€, which were used to buy:
- 9 pairs of shower slippers
- 27 toothbrushes
- 6 pairs of winter home slippers
- 6 pyjamas
- 24 knickers
- 6 underpants
Moreover, the pharmacy Farmàcia Coll Colomer (St. Elies, 28, Barcelona) donated spectacles for presbyopia, for current or future patients who might need them.
We would like to thank all those who generously contributed to our cause. A small gesture can achieve so much!
