TSMU students collected funds to help children in need

The charity organization Care House was created in Chortkiv to address the problem of the lack of resources for social adaptation, development and rehabilitation of children with special needs. The organization relies on charity donations for its funding. There are 350 disabled children in the Chortkiv district, of which 150 live in the district center, and the rest come from other districts and regions.

To help these children TSMU departments participated in a fundraiser where donations were exchanged for candy, dubbed “the good mood medicine”.

In the afternoon, the administrative building hall became a location for a charity fair, which was organized by the interns of TSMU Department of Psychiatry, Narcology and Medical Psychology.

The talented students of our university also shared a few emotionally touching performances in support of the children with special needs.
