The Sidelniki Children’s Rehabilitation and Health Centre recently hosted the Japanese Ambassador to Belarus, H.E. Mr. Shigehiro Mimori, to receive medical equipment donated by the Japanese government via a $90,000 grant.

New equipment already installed and functioning

The money has been used to purchase balneological baths, as well as baths used for underwater and dry massage, Ormed Professional electronic installation, Niko inhalation installation, and a Reeboks device. Installation is complete, and operational, helping young patients undergoing rehabilitation. According to the director of the Sidelniki Centre, Natalia Katrunova, the equipment has helped greatly expand its range of treatments.

The Japanese Ambassador noted his country’s contribution to improving the health of children from Chernobyl affected territories, recalling that over 30 projects have been carried out with Japanese funding since 2004, in Belarus.

The Sidelniki Centre opened in 1996 and annually accommodates more than 5,000 school-age children from the Gomel Region.
