You wake up. You feel that this morning is somehow different. The items in your room look different. A girl enters the room that you’re almost certain you’ve seen somewhere, but you don’t remember where.
Why does this girl call you that? You don’t know how to have a daughter. You stare blankly, trying to make out the tears in her eyes. You feel kind of sad, but you don’t understand why.
This is often the scenario of a person in a home for the disabled. This person can be you and me, it can be any of us. Because schizophrenic disorders and mental disorders in 50% of cases are caused by severe stress, hopelessness and lack of support. Just a minute and you’re on the other side. And when you get there – there is no going back.
Most of the residents have minimal social pensions. Upon accommodation in the social service, a monthly fee is paid to the state, which is within 50% of the pension. The other funds are used to buy medicines, clothes and coffee.
For a person with a mental disorder, it is insanely important to have those 5 minutes in which they drink coffee and some of them smoke a cigarette. This makes them feel part of society, makes them have a sense of belonging and share, albeit briefly, the normal life of people outside.
Therefore, our cause is focused on providing a renovated living room – the place that is almost all day the gathering place of the people from the home.
What do we have to do:
There are two ways everyone can help:
– through personal participation – if you are a designer, you have the opportunity to provide materials or you can get involved with work
– with a donation to the account of the foundation on the grounds of “new room for Ruse”
If you want to help - do it at the link below. We believe that we will need BGN 8,000 to achieve the desired result. If you want to get involved with personal work, please contact us at email@example.com or by phone from the site.
