A Helping Hand on the Eve of the New Year

A Helping Hand on the Eve of the New Year In late dates of December the President of the “Saby” Foundation received a message. The message was about saving lives of two infants born in 2010 and 2011, who needed urgent help of Russian doctors-neurosurgeons.

State quotas for treatment in the Russian Federation had already been received and St. Petersburg doctors were waiting for patients, but it was very difficult to send small patients to St. Petersburg before the New Year holidays: there were no direct flights and air-to-air flights were prohibited strictly by doctors – extremely grave condition of babies did not allow to hope that they would survive after several takeoffs and landings.

During a few hours such a difficult and almost unresolvable question was resolved with the personal participation of the President of the “Saby” Foundation - Aselle Tasmagambetova chartered a special charter flight and settled all necessary formalities. Children connected to life supporting apparatus were brought by mobile intensive care units to the air stairs and a team of pediatricians-resuscitators accompanied them in the nonstop flight to St. Petersburg.

During all the time we have been waiting for news from a specialized neurosurgical clinic of St. Petersburg, where babies are currently being treated, and here we have been informed that their condition has stabilized although it remains grave.

We wish the parents strength and patience and small citizens of Kazakhstan – quickest recovery and return to the native land!
