All the funds raised will be donated to “DETELINKA PLUS - Centre for support of children and youth with development impediments” in Bitola, Macedonia. (more detailed info below)
In addition to raising funds through GoFundMe, PLAY WITHOUT BOUNDARIES Organised A Humanitarian Night Filled with Entertainment - “A Child’s Smile for this World"
We are happy to share that TOGETHER we have raised $8412 which is more than 50% of our goal ($15,000).
Until we reach the finish line on May 15th 2020, PLAY WITHOUT BOUNDARIES will continue to raise funds through GOFUNDME and sponsorships.
TheClue Branding Agency (www.theclue.agency) will also be donating 15% of branding services so we can complete our objectives.
On Saturday 15th of February our vision was realised as we witnessed the true meaning of bringing people together and PLAYING WITHOUT BOUNDARIES.
It was an unforgettable night as talented artists Nikola Zaceski and Ljupcho Angelevski took us on a journey with their hypnotic voices as they sang many of the timeless hits by Toše Proeski and many beautiful Macedonian songs. Supported by Express Band, Chris Cagoroski and Vlado Vicki. Performances by Toše AMDE, Bendjo Academy, Michael Kostidis on gajda and kaval, DJ’s and more!
Well… Let Us Play and Make A Difference.
Play Without Boundaries was established in 2015 by Aleksandar Zaceski to honour the legacy of Toše Proeski.
A Macedonian singer, songwriter, UNICEF ambassador, philanthropist and most of all an inspiration to a generation of Macedonians and communities throughout the world.
“It is unimaginable to me that anyone who can help those who have less or nothing, can close their eyes and refuse to offer a helping hand.”
Aleksandar and his team at Play Without Boundaries hope to continue Toše’s humanitarian work in supporting children’s rights in Macedonia and around the globe.
All the funds raised will be donated to “DETELINKA PLUS - Centre for support of children and youth with development impediments” in Bitola, Macedonia. One area in which the organisation needs assistance is Newborn Hearing Screening for the Pelagonia region in order to provide healthcare for all children, particularly for timely and correct detection and diagnostics of hearing impediments.
The welfare system of Macedonia includes hearing screening of newborns, however the only available device to conduct the hearing screening is located in the State Health Clinic in Skopje and in Private Clinic “Acibadem Sistina” in Skopje.
Currently, families in the Pelagonia region must travel 180km for their newborn babies for the hearing tests. Many children miss out on hearing tests until they are older when problems with hearing and speech are noticed.
(The Pelagonia Region- Inhabitants in Pelagonia Region - approximately 232,000. Inhabitants in Bitola Municipality - approximately 100,000)
Our aims with raising funds are to
· Obtain Hearing Screening Device - MADSEN AccuScreen TEOAE
· Echo Screening in the Pelagonia Region (The city of Bitola and 100 km diameter around the city)
· Conduct hearing screening on newborn babies in Clinical Centre in Bitola (Department for neonatology) and Private hospital “Plodnost” in Bitola (Department of Neonatology).
· Prevention and early diagnostics of impaired hearing (from birth to 1 year) in newborns/children in the Municipality of Bitola and Pelagonia Region
· Early audio and speech therapy in children with detected hearing impairment
Your generosity will assist Play Without Boundaries in reaching our goals of purchasing medical equipment specifically for correct and timely detection and diagnostics of development impediments in children.
