Hi there

As some of you might already know I've been trying to raise some money for the Bangladesh project. We're hoping to raise about 9000 euros (so that would be about 11,331 dollars I think) With that money, a group of people (students and non students) are going to Bangladesh on a building camp. There they will build 2 isolation rooms for TBC patients;
in specific MDR patients. MDR patients (or Multi Drug Resistent) means that they were infected with TBC and started a treatement for it. For this treatement the patient has to daily swallow a large sum of pills. The duration of this treatement depends of the state of the patient. But considering that Bangladesh has much poverty; some of the patients stop the treatement when they start feeling better; in order so they could get back to work and earn that 1 dollar a day. Yes that's right ! They have to feed themselves and their family with 1 dollar a day (Think about what you do with one dollar !). But anyway, the patient is feeling better, due to his treatement, and leaves the hospital or their sickbed to go to work. But what they do not know is that feeling better does certainly not mean they are healed. Some of the strongest bacteries still remain in the body of that person. After about 3 to 4 weeks the person is verry ill again, but now the situation is much worse. Those remaining bacteries have multiplied themselves again, and have become resistant to the medication for TBC. SO these MDR patients are very dangerous and have to be isolated in order not to infect other people as they are highly contagious.
And that's where those isolation rooms are for. TBC is spread by breathing, so the rooms are equiped with some good ventilation systems that lead the deadly bacteries out of the room into the outside air, where the bacteries are killed by the sun.

Why do I tell you this? Because I think it is important to create awareness about this issue. I'm hoping to go to Bangladesh myself, 2 years from now (when I'm 18).
What can we do about it? We can make other people aware of it, or donate money to foundation that do projects like this. ( go see the damion foundation site!)

Also I'm very happy to say that my drawing has in fact raised some money (you can see it here --> darklaela.deviantart.com/art/F… )
I've donated a high quality 35 on 47 cm framed print to the vastival auction. There was quite a big interest in it and eventualy the highest bidder paid about 200 euros (or 252 dollars) for it. That's a large sum of money for something that simple as a print.
I was realy glad for that.

I still have prints left of the drawing, so if anyone would like to donate some money for Bangladesh, just contact me, and in return, you will receive a high quality print.

Thank you very much for reading this
and I hope you spread the word and the awareness.

kind regards
Eleni
