The Cycle Kosovo for Children is a fundraising event, started in 2014, in cooperation with Action for Mothers and Children - AMC. Since then, a group of 40 – 50 cyclists participate in the annual tour, cycling around Kosovo, passing through major cities in the country, including 500 km of cycling and 6,000 meters of climbing. The tour continued in 2015 and 2016, with the same goal, namely raising funds for the Prishtina University Hospital Maternity Unit. Each year, the event was able to raise between 10 and 14 thousand Euros, through corporate sponsorship, individual donations, and end-of-tour event organized in Prishtina. The money was used for the purchase of a Haematology Analyser, UV lamps for baby incubators, and Cardiopulmonary Monitors, which was donated to the Maternity Unit in Prishtina. http://kosovaideas.net/campaign/detail/305
Building on the success of 2014-2016, we are organizing another charity cycle event. We hope to raise funds for Action for Mothers and Children, which this year will deliver the CRP/CBC equipment to the Neonatology Intensive Care Unit in Peja. To put it simply, this equipment is essential to measure the severity of blood infections in babies, allowing for prompt antibiotic therapy, proper duration of antibiotics, and treatment follow-up by taking baby’s blood right at the incubator. It’s highly efficient; the results are ready in 4 minutes, after a single blood draw. Use of this equipment is expected to improve the efficiency of care provided for our newborns in Peja.
