With 20% of your company`s income or profit tax, you can help disadvantaged people, sick parents that find themselves in great distress, get well and support their children in the future.
Supported by the generosity of all the good people, Fundația Inovații Sociale Regina Maria has been alongside people without income and without medical insurance for over 9 years, offering them quality integrated services, free of charge, and the right to a decent life.
Within the Foundation, through Baba Novac Social Clinic there are being treated over 2500 patients, people with dramatic life stories, socially excluded or risking exclusion, people who don’t have access to medical services within the state system.
“ By directing 20% from your company’s income or profit tax we can offer medical services to these women and men, for whom health means another day won next to their children. Health is not guaranteed for anybody, especially not for those who do not have access to a medical service other than the emergency service. And when on these people depend thousands of children, the situation becomes even more dramatic”, states Cristiana Mateoiu, Executive Director of the Foundation.
Diana is a 9 year old little girl with a piercing look, as of a grown-up, that seems to read directly into your soul. She is one of the thousands charity case that Fundația Inovații Sociale Regina Maria supports.
Despite being so young and fragile she has a dramatic life story, but instead of bringing her down, this helped her become a pillar for her peers, just because she experienced herself what it means to be poor, sick and distressed.
Diana does anything a 9 year old girl can do to help her mother be happy: she learns well, washes the dishes, keeps the house clean, prepares meals and takes care of her cousins. The girl is a 3rd grade student at Dinu Lipatti high school and studies the violin, following on her mother’s footsteps, who used to be a music teacher. Diana lives only with her mother and her two cousins, of which her mother takes care as well, in a house that has been recently claimed and that will no longer be a home for them, as they are going to be evicted soon.
„‘When mom is well, I`m not afraid of anything: not of the fact that we will not have money to buy fire wood, nor that we`ll be thrown out of our home. I am afraid only when my mother is sick.’

“Everything is just for her. If we lose this house, I pray to God help us find a place to stay, from where she can go to school and continue to study violin. The only way I am able to get out of bed is if I take permanent treatment, which I cannot afford, because I do not have an income or medical insurance. My only chance to live to see Diana grow up is Baba Novac Social Clinic, where I go every month for 4 years now and, I can honestly say, it saved my life.”, says with a heavy heart Diana’s mother.
Mrs. Carmen, Diana’s mother, suffers from arterial hypertension stage 3 with high risk, type 2 diabetes and peripheral neuropathy with hands and legs paresthesia, and in the absence of mandatory medical treatment there is a high risk she could suffer from a heart attack or a stroke, in other words, her life could be in danger.
