We partially paid for Vladik's rehabilitation at the Victoria Center. Thanks for your help, friends!


Immediately after birth, Vladik developed meningoencephalitis - a simultaneous damage to the brain and its membranes.With this diagnosis, every fifth newborn dies, and in half of the survivors, complications remain for life.

Vladik spent the first month of his life in a desperate struggle. The disease has destroyed most of the brain. Even then it was clear that his path would not be easy.

As soon as Vladik got home, his parents started to rehabilitate him. After all, while the child is small, healthy brain cells can take over some of the lost functions. Massages, physiotherapy exercises, classes with rehabilitation therapists have not stopped for six years already.

Vladik Petreiko

Vladik visited many centers of Ukraine, and between trips he studied at home. Now he confidently holds his head, turns from tummy to back and takes light toys. Achievements would have been much more, if not for epilepsy. For the first time, the convulsions happened when Vladik was three years old. Since then, seizures have occurred from time to time, not allowing full development.

In September of this year, Vladik went to an kindergarten in inclusive group . Communication with children gave a huge impetus to the emotional development of the boy: new sounds and feelings appeared.

Families with special children are always in good shape. Parents know that if you put up with it and let everything go by itself, the development of the child will stop, or even completely roll back. That is why Vladik and his parents are asking us to help pay for a course at the Victoria center worth 970 dollars. This will be another small step in the development of the boy!

The family lives in Bakhmut, Donetsk region.
