MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The prosecutor’s office of the city of Chernogorsk of the Republic of Khakassia held a reception for families with disabled children, during which a request was received from the mother of a disabled child regarding the lack of a daughter’s wheelchair.
It was established that a minor needs a wheelchair with a manual drive with additional fixation of the head and body for health reasons. In February 2019, the legal representative of the child applied to the regional branch of the social insurance fund with a statement about the provision of a daughter in accordance with the individual rehabilitation program of a disabled person with technical rehabilitation equipment – a wheelchair.
At the time of the appeal of the mother of the children to the city prosecutor’s office in May 2019, the rehabilitation tool needed by the disabled child was never received. During the period of the supervising activities of the city prosecutor’s office, the regional office signed a contract with the sole supplier for the purchase of the necessary means of rehabilitation.
At present, a disabled child is provided with the necessary means of rehabilitation – a wheelchair.
