=====================================

Babich family moved to Zaporizhia from the city of Stakhanov, the Luhansk region in July, 2014. Plants, manufactures, enterprises were gradually closed in their hometown. Alexander worked as a foreman in a smelter. But the family was forced to move to our city, Zaporizhia. Here Alexander could find a job to support a family.

Tatyana with Alexander have already lived together for 18 years. They dreamed about children. They were treated and examined a lot. And miracle happened at previous year, Tatyana got pregnant. Good news was found out on the ultrasound - couple will have twins. All underwent without complications. And two little men Vanya and Polina saw the light in January 2015. From now on, troubles were mixed with happiness. The children’s lungs didn’t open at birth because of premature birth. Newborns were taken to rehabilitation. They were staying a long time on ALV apparatuses. It was almost three month of exhausting and sleepless nights, and it was just the beginning.

Vanya was operated (shunted) owing to hydrocephalus. Also it was diagnosed heart failure, stenosis of a pulmonary artery 2 degrees. And when the things were getting better, the new ordeal came in the family. But as it turned out after another check-up, Vanya can’t hear. He was diagnosed sensorineural deafness of the IV degree. Diagnosis was confirmed in Kiev.

In order Ivan will be able learn to speak and start to hear, he is in need of two hearing aids at a total cost of 2 000 USD. Further it will be necessary costly cochlear implantation, but about it later....

Now the main is not to miss the valuable precious, time. Until the baby is small, he needs hearing aids urgently. Then it will be much a lot harder to return the baby to full-fledged life.

Unfortunately, the family has low-income and they don’t dispose such amount. We address you for a help soliciting financial help to collect necessary amounts.

Remember, many a mickle makes a muckle.
