Donation Report

Oleksiy did not have a carefree childhood. He has been fighting the disease for two years. Every day is hard work and small victories that make his future life more or less healthy.

During childbirth, Oleksiyko experienced entanglement of the umbilical cord. Doctors resuscitated the baby, but temporary oxygen starvation left negative consequences. At six months, doctors assumed that Oleksiy had cerebral palsy, and later the diagnosis was confirmed.

Because of the war, Oleksiy's family left their native home in the occupied Green Grove and moved to Zaporizhzhia. And after intense shelling of the city in October 2022, the family went further, to Truskavets. There, Oleksiy began to be treated at the Kozyavkin clinic, and has already completed four rehabilitation courses. By the way, we paid for the July rehabilitation thanks to your help!

The boy's achievements are incredible! Half a year ago, he was just learning to roll over from his back to his tummy, and now he is kneeling on his own, leaning on his hands. Oleksiy realized that using his hands is very interesting: you can eat or grab something attractive by yourself. The boy also started talking, but in his own, childish way.

Between rehabilitations with specialists, Oleksiy works out with his parents at home. Physical exercises, such as squats or exercises for the back, he already does several dozen repetitions! And the boy and his mother draw, put together magnetic puzzles and do many exercises for the development of fine motor skills.

For further development, Oleksiy needs regular rehabilitation courses with specialists. It is quite difficult for an ordinary family to pay for 3-4 courses a year on their own, and even in wartime conditions. The next rehabilitation is scheduled for the end of February, its cost is 20,940 hryvnias (560 US dollars). Please become a magician for Oleksiy and give him a chance for a healthy, carefree childhood!
