The whole world is helping 7-year-old Arat – already 6 thousand US dollars has been collected

Collection of the means to help seven-year-old Arat, who has a brain tumor, is going on in Tuva. The action was initiated by Tuvan reporters. As soon as the first announcement that the little boy needs urgent help appeared, the Tuvan journalists immediately reacted. Quickly, contact with Arat’s mother, Anisya Kim-oolovna was established. She was invited to a press conference, where she told the reporters about her son’s condition.

The chief of Regulation of Courts, Alexandr Saryglar, deputy of Legislative House, president of foundation “Mama” Galina Munzuk, merited artist of Republic Tuva Galina Syuryun, and chief of department of propaganda of the “United Russia” party Saima Dalchin came to her support.

On April 8, cultural workers made a decision to hold a benefit concert on April 17, to donate the proceeds for the medical treatment of the little boy from Chadan.

On the suggestion of Viktoria Peemot, Arat’s mother opened a foreign currency account. The journalist promised to spread the information amongst her colleagues in other countries. The reporters of GTRK “Tyva” organized a sms-support. They also contributed means for Arat’s treatment. The chairman of the Association of Municipal Units of Tuva and head of Kyzyl Viktor Tunev addressed his colleagues, the heads of kozhuuns, with an appeal for help. The Ministry of Health Protection of Tuva turned to the deputy of National Duma, Larisa Shoigu, with a request to transfer Arat from St. Peterburg to Moscow, and to apportion a quota for his treatment at a medical facility.

Altogether, about 3 million rubles will be needed for Arat’s medical treatment.

By April 8, the charity site “Advita” reported that the first contributions were already coming in. On March 30, Lyubov Yegorovna Shalayeva already transferred 4000 rubles.

Arat Mongush was born in Chadan on August 23, 2001. He is the third son in the family. During the fall vacation, he developed elevated temperature, but after 2 days the child improved. In December 2008, the child started complaining of pain in his neck. On December 15, a brain tumor was diagnosed. In December 22, Anisya Mongush took her son to St. Peterburg. By that time, Arat’s condition deteriorated: he could not walk, vomited constantly, and he was in intolerable pain.

A shunt was installed on December 26, and on January 15, the tumor was removed. Since February 18, Arat has been in St.Peterburg City Hospital 31. He is undergoing radiation therapy, which will be finished on April 28. After that, the child will be transferred to Kyzyl. Then he will need to undergo chemotherapy. A single dose costs 160,000 rubles, and he will need to take it for 8 months. There is no pediatric oncologist in Tuva.

The question of apportioning the quota for his further treatment remains open. The limit of the quotas allowed the republic for this year has already been exhausted. The Ministry of health is ready to pay off the costs of the boy’s treatment, and his mother has already been given 130,000 rubles.

At the charity concert on April 17, 218,000 rubles was collected. This sum does not include the means needed printing the tickets and the pay for the work groups.

Thanks to the support of the journalists, the information that the little boy from Tuva with a horrible diagnosis needs urgent help was quickly disseminated throughout the country.

The information about the boy’s illness, placed on the English language version of Tuva-Online, did not leave friends of Tuva from other countries indifferent. German publisher Juergen Boden sent $250 by the Western Union system to Anisya Mongush.
