Rehabilitation and work on oneself is his personal way to independence. Thanks to rehabilitation courses and help from caring people, thirteen-year-old Sasha, who was born with a diagnosis of cerebral palsy and bilateral deafness, today hears the world around him and can interact with it. Despite the fact that he is called "special", a congenital ailment did not prevent him from becoming a cheerful and smiling boy who grows up in front of our eyes and dreams of a brighter future, communicating with new friends and, of course, traveling. The guy can serve himself in everyday life, which undoubtedly pleases his mother Sveta. And she, in turn, can easily work outside the home.

Every Sasha’s day is filled with worries. Wash yourself and brush your teeth. Feed your pets – cats Pushok and Dashenka. In response, they purr gratefully and rub against his legs. At 11 am Sasha does his homework. Intermittently, but independently. Relaxation. He can now chat with friends on the Internet, play games. Further, according to the plan of the day, clubs: English, music or sports. And recently a fitness center has been added, where Sasha's trainer created an individual exercise program for him. After a workout, when the weather is good outside, the boy can take a walk near the sea, breathe in the salty air. Sasha also has a special hobby – helping his mother prepare meals, especially various homemade pastries.

From the outside it will seem that there is nothing special in Sasha's life! But for him, this is the result of 10 years of work, and he still needs training to develop speech. In April, the next one is to be held – in the Odessa speech center "Loguar", worth USD 1880. Unless, of course, there are those who will help.

And we can't help but help!

In April, rehabilitation is to take place at the Odessa center for the development of speech "Loguar", costing 1 940 USD. You can also support the project «I want to sing along to the birds! 5», who started at «UBB» in January 2022, in order to raise funds for the rehabilitation of Sasha.
