YEKATERINBURG, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - The results of the Yekaterinburg charity action “Do not skimp the money for someone’s life” in aid to a heavily ill child were summed up in Yekaterinburg. Over 246 kilograms of different coins were raised during the charity action, the press service of the charity “By the roads of good” told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The charity action began on July 16. All people were given an opportunity to donate their small money for the treatment of a heavily ill child. The special boxes for raising the coins were placed in different organizations; the volunteers of the charity movement were raising donations at big trading centers. According to preliminary estimates, the sum of donations reached about 50,000 rubles,” the press service said.
All donations will be spent for treatment of a heavily ill boy Pasha Farshatov, the press service reported. “Yelena, the mother of the boy has been fighting for the health of the younger son from her three children for the third year. At the sight of the amount of coins raised for her son, she broke out into tears,” the volunteers of the charity “By the roads of good” told Itar-Tass.
“Thanks a lot to all people, who are helping to me and Pasha. The little boy wants to walk very much, tries to do it as much as possible and does not realize why he cannot run together with his brother and sister. The treatment, which we will be able to pay for now, will help Pasha to make his first steps. Thanks a lot!” Yelena Farshatova said.
“This sum of money together with other donations will be enough for the whole course of special rehabilitation at the Chelyabinsk medical centre. The residents of Yekaterinburg proved once again that they live in a generous city,” the charity noted.
