New project: Help for hemophilia!

1. Objectives :

I shall go on a bike to the WFH Congress which will be held next year in Istanbul. The Romanian Hemophilia Association through this action wants to focus the public attention on hemophilia and to talk about our problems. I shall do 1089km in 14 days.

2. Justification

My younger son, Daniel has got severe hemophilia. He was diagnosed at the age of 1. Since then we faced with many problems through which I understood that I can’t manage alone Daniel’s situation. But after we entered in the association I realized that not only we have difficulties, that there are people who are in even worse situation. That’s why I decided to do this trip not only for my son, but for the whole hemophilia community.

3. Activities

During my trip I shall stop in each important town, no matter if it’s Romanian, Bulgarian or Turkish. There I shall meet the local hemophila associations and the local media too. Once arrived there in the name of our association I want to get in contact with other similar organizations to build common actions and develop a partner relationship over the medium to long term.

4. Duration and plan of action

I shall do 1089km in 14 days.
