with the overwelming help of many many radio amateurs and some non-amateurs from all over the world we were able to assure the needed 7 days / 24 hours care for Vlad for already more than 4 years. Of course most of the support came in after the information about his changed situation after his mothers dead was spread out through several bulletins and club reflectors in late 2008.
Many of those helpers provided one time support, some with bigger, some with a smaller amount. Several of us provide monthly support which of course is the most needed way as we need to pay for the care every month. By the way Valentina who took over this hard job 4 years ago fullfills all needs and Vlad is happy with the care she provides.
As in the past months not much came in anymore and the monthly support we receive is only about 20% of what is needed every month it is forseeable that without more support we will run into trouble in april / may 2013.
A few more guys who offered regular support earlier already promissed to be part of the monthly supporter group now. So now about 185 EUR out of 482 EUR needed every month are assured.
So hereby I would like to ask everybody to think and decide if he's able and wish to support us in providing needed care to Vlad and help him this way to be able to stay on air and be with us in our great hobby amateur radio on the bands.
Of course although monthly support (15 people per 20 EUR would do it) would be the best from a long term view every kind of support will be very appricated. The past 4 years showed how well this may help!
For any questions please contact me directly. In case You wish to make a non regular support You can use PayPal to my email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks in advance!
