The report on the arrived donations

Vanya and Polina are unusual twins: their parents waited for them for eighteen years! Six months before their birth, mom and dad moved from Luhansk region to Zaporizhzhia because of the war. The twins were born prematurely and spent the first months of their lives in the hospital. Today, Polina is almost healthy, but Vanya is still struggling with the consequences of premature birth.

At one and a half months, Vanya had a shunt installed due to hydrocephalus. A few months later, it became clear that the boy could not hear, and the diagnosis was established - sensorineural deafness of the IV degree. And a little later, another one - cerebral palsy. Since then, physical exercises, massages and corrective classes have appeared in Vanya's life - everything to bring the boy closer to a healthy childhood.

Now Vanya is eight years old. Only a few years ago, he took his first step. This was the result of constant work at home and in numerous rehabilitation centers. Today, Vanya can walk, although he still stumbles and loses his balance sometimes. Despite this, it moves everywhere independently.

Vanyusha is a second-grade student at the "Zherelo" school for children with hearing impairment. Due to the war, the academic year started again remotely. It is quite difficult for the boy to learn in this mode. Even with a cochlear implant and a hearing aid, he cannot hear fully. As a result, Vanya still does not speak well and has a small vocabulary.

For Vanya's further development, individual classes with a correctional teacher and a rehabilitator are needed. A three-week intensive at the "Bude Tak" center is planned for the end of the year and will cost 39,900 hryvnias. (1100 USD)

Please support Vanya! Give him the opportunity to be one step closer to a healthy childhood!
