Report on receipts and expenses of donations

Maria was born six months old, weighing one kilogram! For some time, the baby was in the intensive care unit, because she was breathing with the help of a ventilator. Premature birth left its negative consequences, and at the age of one year, the girl was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Spastic tetraparesis.

At the age of six, Maria underwent several surgical interventions: correction of a congenital dislocation of the left hip, orthopedic surgery with cutting of the tendon with the installation of a plate.

Maria is now 12 years old, and she is studying in an inclusive program. Her favorite teacher comes to paint and read fairy tales together. Also, Masha walks outside every day with great pleasure and always smiles at her neighbors and acquaintances. The girl easily finds contact with people and actively tries to communicate with those around her, but her vocabulary is still limited to a few words. And even this is enough to leave behind smiles and emotions, and therefore a bright trace in everyone's life.

Mariyka still does not walk and sits only with support. The girl struggles with spasticity every day. This is uncontrolled muscle tension that causes pain. Regular rehabilitation courses reduce muscle tone, and arms and legs become more mobile.

Let's support Mariyka together, giving her the opportunity to live without pain!
