"Paula Abdul, Michael Bolton and the "Earthlings". The stars of show business came today to seriously ill children in the first municipal hospital in the Avant-garde street.
In the framework of charity musicians demonstrated the latest equipment for eye care and burn units. Complicated and expensive equipment purchased with the money the charity fund "Federation". Such devices help physicians, first, to recognize the disease, for example, the eye early on and ease the pain of young patients.
For example, a bed, equipped with a computer, runs on a dry liquid. This allows the body to repeat the form of a child, avoid friction, and pressure sores, which is especially important in the burn ward.
Michael Bolton, musician:
"I'm also a father, I too have children. It is impossible to say" no "when it comes to aid charities, children's hospitals. Difference is based on advanced technologies and products, and you know it you can see all of you just can disseminate information that the hospital needs to be supported. "
This is not the first action of the charity fund "Federation". From 30 March to 1 April in Moscow hosted a charity auction in aid of the four children's hospitals. This list includes two hospitals, and St. Petersburg.
Also, action timed to coincide with another important event - the Mikhailovsky Castle today will be a charity auction, "Stars in support of Russia against severe childhood diseases." Typically, the money collected at these auctions, go to help seriously ill children and equipping hospitals with modern equipment."
"The distinguished guests who attended one of the largest children's hospitals in St. Petersburg, saw a unique bed in the burn intensive care and modern devices for testing of children.
Today, the children's city hospital № 1 on the Avant-garde street of St. Petersburg's famous guests were waiting. World stars visited the clinic in the charity event organized by Foundation "Federation".
Were you able to talk to young patients with singers and celebrities who came out, he knows NTV correspondent Katerina Pravdina .
Guests arriving in the 1st children's city hospital in time, first for a long time stood in front of the clinic. Journalists and patients considered to Paul Abdul and Michael Bolton. It turned out that they are waiting for the other stars. When it became clear that others did not arrive, the company has acceded to the doctors, musicians who met in the lobby.
After a brief introduction delegation moved around, which was the first item on the intensive care burn department, which recently brought and set up a special bed. Bought it for charitable funds collected after the ball, which took place a year ago on the Sparrow Hills.
Then in the list of recipients and hit the St. Petersburg Children's Hospital. Now the treatment is on the new hardware is 12-year-old Sasha, who has 40% burns. The boy was brought here by helicopter from Novgorod.
Marina Brazol , head of the burns unit of the 1st children's city hospital in St. Petersburg: "The bed operates on the principle of dry liquid. It creates a little pressure on the burn surface, the donor wounds, where we take skin. The bed is warm. We can adjust the temperature to warm the patient. This is important: in shock patients ill keep the temperature. "
Previously, when changing a patient in intensive care physicians had a special sterilized sand by hand. It took about 12 hours. And given the high demand for such equipment, is a branch of one thousand children a year, every minute counts.
Simplify the lives of patients and physicians and diagnostic ophthalmic center. This study is the second and last point of the program
star delegation .
The children are the stars of show business did not communicate. But this was not planned. Of course, if one of the patients left the chambers, the dialogue would be held. But the kids wanted to or not, or were on the procedures, or just tired.
But on further financial support of this fact should not be affected. Especially when the guests - an American of Russian origin, Michael Bolotin, who became Michael Bolton, but do not forget their roots.
Michael Bolton , musician: "I too have children. It is impossible to say "no" when it comes to child care organizations, children charities, children's hospitals. We came here to see the difference - when you can use the new technology. Children sleep on new bedding. We would like to see it with my own eyes. But the most important thing that you distribute this information. And the hospital, and children receive more support. And probably all of us heart aches when it comes to children. "
In the 1st children's city hospital a lot of friends to help financially. With some, this friendship has lasted for about ten years. The only question that someone needed publicity for charitable events, while others, on the contrary, I want to remain a secret benefactor. But in any case, the value of this assistance is always equivalent."
