Hydrocephalus Shunt Programme


Sadly hydrocephalus shunt operations, the norm here in the United Kingdom, are few and far between in a cash strapped Romanian health service, which sentences children who develop hydrocephalus to a long, slow painful death. However for the lucky few, Copii in Dificultate, in partnership with the German charity, Children’s Smiles, has a shunt operation programme and has developed expertise in post operative intensive care. We do what we can, however, there are always parents who accept, without question, their doctor’s diagnosis and advice that their children are beyond help. For those children we have specialised nursing staff, who nurse and care for each child in our care, to ensure that they die with dignity and without pain. Your gift of a hydrocephalus shunt may offer the hope of a normal life to these children.
