David Sullà: Count on me, I swim for you
A 1,000 children and adolescents living in Catalonia are affected by different diseases that in many cases make their death predictable and have specific palliative needs. The professionals of the field and many families are asking for the creation of a specialized support network that can handle the complexity and the palliative needs of children under the age of 18.
David Sullà, Masters' Swimmer of Club Natació Catalunya, has proposed to join his sporting challenges with a solidarity challenge: to raise funds for the project "Cuenta conmigo". The crossing of May 28, the 7th Neda El Mundo Swim Barcelona, was part of his calendar of open water crossings.
Together with professionals from five reference hospitals, Fundación Enriqueta Villavecchia has worked on the proposal to create a support network that can provide better care and support these families, in a comprehensive way, for all the children affected by any disease, not only oncological, throughout the Catalan territory. Since the beginning of this year, Fundación Enriqueta Villavecchia has already put in place a psychosocial care team that serves the children and adolescents of different hospitals, especially in the domiciliary area. The project is called "Cuenta conmigo", and David Sullà, who knows the project, has launched a campaign to fundraise through crowdfunding. The campaign began on May 5th and the donations are given through the web page "Mi grano de arena: https://www.migranodearena.org/es/reto/15480/compta-amb-mi-nedo-per - you / ".
From Neda El Mundo we want to thank David Sullà for having "counted on us" for this noble cause, and from here we wish him and his cause all the best!
