Over the years, the You Are Not Alone Foundation has expanded its medical support and assistance helping disabled and vulnerable children receive life-saving surgery and medical care. With the help of the Ministry of Public Health of Uzbekistan and the Ministry of Public Education of Uzbekistan, You Are Not Alone not only ensures that children in orphanages receive regular medical checks, but also provides funding for advanced treatment, including surgery for children with serious medical conditions.
Over time, the You Are Not Alone Foundation equipped many hospitals in Uzbekistan with advanced medical equipment, including humidity cribs for new-borns, ultrasound machines, life support systems, cardiac monitors, and air purification systems.
To respond to the need for specialist treatment for children with congenital heart diseases, You Are Not Alone started a collaboration with the French Association La Chaîne de l’Espoir (Chain of Hope) in 2015 bringing French specialist surgeons to Uzbekistan and in some cases bringing children to France for surgeries. More than 130 children with congenital heart conditions have received medical operations and care through the initiative, 21 of which were operated in France.
