We are proud to announce that International House in partnership with Cedar Foundation managed to collect more than 13 000 leva over the Charity Auction in May 2018, over the annual IHWO Directors’ Conference in Sofia.

This auction was organized by the Cedar Foundation, which is a Bulgarian NGO. It leads positive change in state policies and public attitudes towards disadvantaged groups. Provides individual care and a range of specialized therapies to over 100 children and youth in Bulgaria, mainly with disabilities.

The Charity Auction project

14 of the children and young adults who live in The Cedar Foundation’s Small Group Homes have severe physical disabilities, such as Spina bifida, Cerebral palsy, Muscular dystrophy, Epilepsy, etc. Through systematic physiotherapy, Cedar Foundation aim to relieve any pain and discomfort, to optimize their range of motion and stimulate them to be as independent as their condition allows.

Thanks to the over 13 000 leva raised during the IH Charity Auction in May 2018, Cedar Foundation team are able to fund the daily physical rehabilitation sessions for all 14 children for a period of 18 months.

Let’s keep up the good pace.

Find out more about their next charity event on Nov. 24th – the “Once Upon a Time” charity ball.
