Tartu University Hospital Children’s Foundation “Support therapy for disabled children!”
How does your donation help?
Tartu University Hospital Children’s Foundation is one of Estonia’s oldest and largest charity organisations that has been helping severely ill children cover costs related to their conditions from the year 2000. The foundation also supports the purchase of necessary equipment to TUH Children’s Hospital and other children’s infirmaries, bringing foreign lecturers to Estonia, and providing training to nurses and doctors.
We need donations to provide relief to sick children in the form of occupational, equestrian, physical or music therapy.
What is occupational therapy and how does it help? Occupational therapy focuses on preserving people’s operation capability and increasing their independence with purposefully chosen activities, in order to achieve the best possible skills for coping with tasks of their daily lives. Occupational therapy is vital for children whose development is not age appropriate and who have trouble carrying out activities characteristic of their age (playing, dressing, eating, communicating, hygiene tasks, etc.). Skills acquired during occupational therapy significantly improve children’s life and level of independence in the future.
