Oleksiy Velky

Alyosha is a smiling and cheerful boy. He loves to play with children and to occasionally get messed up. In the house where Alyosha lives, there are often guests — mother's and his friends. And it happens the other way around: they go to visit friends. Together they read books, watch cartoons, and play educational games. Olga, Alyosha's mother, tries not to isolate her son from the outside world and, whenever possible, takes him "to people": to playgrounds, various events, and just to take a walk where it's noisy. The boy is especially glad at every meeting with the sea, because it is so affectionate and gentle; it makes Alyosha's arms and legs so light and even obedient! Seeing the happy eyes of her son, Olga is ready to carry him in her arms until Alyoshka grows up and walks on his own. She believes it so much!

Alyosha has cerebral palsy, epilepsy, psychomotor retardation. When she manages to find funds, Olga takes her boy to rehabilitation centers. In addition, a social worker comes to Alyosha twice a week. Between rehabilitations, Olga helps her son diligently do his homework, which is given in the centers. In general, that’s the usual life of "special" families, where there is only a mother and the best child. And also the world that can either support or not understand and condemn them.

In 2021, Alyosha went to rehabilitation at the Ioannov Center, Dnipropetrovsk region. Here the child was for the first time and received a new set of exercises, different from those given in other centers. There are few significant results, and rehabilitation needs to be continued. So far, Alyosha is only being picked up the keys for to enable the potential of a small organism to be revealed. But the main thing is that classes bring joy to the boy himself! Olga sees how her son perks up before something new and unknown. The practical side for a single mother is also important: there is an opportunity to save money by living at the center.

The year 2022 seemed difficult. However, despite military aggression in Ukraine, mother and Oleksiyka remained in their native Zaporizhzhia. Moreover, thanks to the support of caring people, they were able to attend rehabilitation courses at the local Sovenya center. And from May 22, 2023, the family continued classes at the rehabilitation center "Ioanniv Center", Dnipropetrovsk region. We were able to help the family to pay for the last course, thanks to your donations and the project "Pick up the keys to Oleksiia", which took place on the platform dobro.ua. $ 527 were spent. But for further expenses, we ask for your help.

To support the family until the end of the year, we plan to collect $ 1355. Previously, it is for two courses of rehabilitation, special nutrition and hygiene products.

The family lives in Zaporozhye.
