A project of recovery medical center for disabled children, meant for 250 seats, is worked up in Bashkiria, the deputy Prime-Minister of Government RB Lilia Gumerova reported at the last meeting of the coordination council for affairs of disabled people.

According to her a rehabilitation social center will be opened in Bashkiria in the nearest future and specialist will teach disabled people new methods of self-service and will help them to determine their future professions.

The president of the charity educational fund “MARKHAMAT” Aigul Gareeva was talking about rehabilitation of disabled children.

“Activity of public organizations in the form of help to disabled kids can be efficient” – she said – “In our work we resort to help of both business and the state and the children, visiting our center, study the same programs, which are accessible for healthy kids”.

“At present time 2889 disabled children live in Ufa” – the deputy head of Ufa administration Alfira Bakieva reported – “305 of them suffer low mobility. Unfortunately the number of such children grows and in the nearest future we forecast the increase of their number. Though three multi-profiled rehabilitation centers work in Ufa now, we still face the shortage of such institutions. The queues for visits to such centers reach 6-8 months”.

At present time more than 14 disabled kids live in Bashkiria, including 471 kids in children’s homes.
