The President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov has visited the Republican rehabilitation center for children and teenagers with disabilities on Wednesday, May 11. The employees of this medical institution told him about their work and the problems they had to face practically everyday.
The majority of small patients of this center are the children, suffering from the locomotorium diseases, mental retardation and from the after-effects of affection of the central nervous system. 700-100 people come here every day. All services in the center are free of charge.
The center’s staff consists of about 30 people and the average salary here is just 5-6 thousand rubles but in spite of such miserable money there is no fluctuation of manpower here and many specialists work in the center for many years.
“Our main problem is insufficient financing. Besides, the center’s building needs repair and new equipment. We’d like to hope that the President of Bashkortostan will examine this difficult situation and undertake all necessary measures” – the director of the center Zulfia Safiullina said to the news agency “Bashinform”.
