Christmas support drive for nurses in Libya starts in Bulgaria

Date: 11.12.2005

Bulgaria's seaside city of Nessebar has announced the launch of a Christmas campaign in support of the nurses jailed in Libya.

The initiative "You are not alone on Christmas" will be held under the patronage of the chairman of the local Municipal Council Dimitar Yankov.

Those willing could send their Christmas messages for the nurses in Libya, he said. The initiative will be launched officially on Monday, when the children's parliament will prepare the first care package for the nurses.

Hand-made postcards, a piece of Bulgarian shore in a box of sand, and seashells are among the presents prepared for the nurses. The idea is to give them some courage by showing them that millions of Bulgarians think of them and support them, Yankov said.

The decision to launch such a campaign was a spontaneous one, Yankov explains. It happened when the children and he were discussing the idea of sending a care package to give strength to the nurses and help them in the tough moments.

Five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor were accused of infecting almost 400 Libyan children with HIV at the Bengazi hospital. A local jury sentenced the six to death in May 2004, sparkling international outrage.
