Omega Project operates to enable the work of trained pediatric medical professionals in Oradea, Romania.
Having visited Emanuel Hospice in Oradea, Romania a group of us have felt compelled to support some of the work done by its amazing staff there.
Omega Project is linked to Friends of Emanuel Hospice
, a charity supporting the important work of Emanuel Hospice in Oradea both in the direct medical care it delivers and its activity in the wider community.
Omega Project was officially launched in Bristol in July 2016 . We had agreed our commitment to pursue fundraising activities with a view to funding a new doctor (Paediatrician) to add to the existing hospice team. We promised to provide this funding for a minimum period of three years(i.e. £30,000 in total) to allow the hospice to give reasonable commitment to the new doctor.
However, this recruitment process is a long and difficult one, and after a few near misses, they were still without the right person to join the team at the end of 2016 to relieve excessive workloads, particular on the one doctor currently employed at the hospice. Therfore while this recruitment process does continue, we were also aware of the funding gaps in providing for the wages of the existing team of fifteen staff during 2017.
Our 2017 Commitment
We have agreed with the Emanuel Hospice team that Omega Project will fund the hospice’s current lead doctor( Dr Beni) during 2017.
Then, depending on reassement of hospice team needs / recruitment plans later in the year, we will re-consider how our second year (i.e. 2018) of annual commitment will be used by the hospice.
2017 annual salary costs for Dr Beni are approximately £12,000, so this amount is our funding commitment for 2017 to be provided to the hospice over the coming months.
