The Foundation Inovatii Sociale Regina Maria offered between July-September 2020 over 1000 full dental services, free or at low prices, in the two social clinics it operates. The prevention and treatment of the dental diseases for the patients without income and social insurance or with low income was financially supported by Vodafone Foundation Romania with a budget of 72.000 lei.
During the pandemic, over 1000 social patients of the Social Clinic Baba Novac and Sala Palatului Clinic were deprived of vital dental services, the alternatives being limited in Bucharest and the whole country. The financial support provided by Vodafone Foundation Romania made possible for 308 patients without income and 185 patients with low income to resume their treatment in safe conditions and to benefit from high quality dental services up to surgery, prosthetics or orthodontics.
Angela Galeța, Director of Vodafone Foundation Romania: “The difficult situations, such as this pandemic, affects especially the vulnerable people. Our Foundations are at the second collaboration that comes in the support of the patients from disadvantaged categories, offering them high quality and accessible integrated medical services, as alternatives to the public health system and the private one. “
Cristiana Mateoiu, Executive Director of the Foundation Inovații Sociale Regina Maria: „In Bucharest there are thousands of people without income and social insurance that can not afford any kind of medical services, let alone the dental one. In addition, during this period, the additional costs generated by the mandatory supplementary protection equipment for the protection of the patients exceeded our possibility of finances, therefore we are extremely grateful to our partners that choose to support us when the need is the biggest and with whom we succeed to treat as many undeserved patients.”
Policlinica Sociala Baba Novac was built 10 years ago out of the will to support of the disadvantaged families without income and medical insurance, while Sala Palatului Clinic, a socio-medical entrepreneurial project offers medical services at small prices, based on the contribution of those that pay the full price of the consultation and treatment in clinic.
The Clinics have 5 cabinets and own radiology centre and 20 dental doctors cover a wide range of dental services, offering a normal chance of life to those who came in their office.
