In Ukraine, parents of children with special needs are encouraged to hand their children over to state care. They are told their children will be a burden on society and are unworthy of love. Children are sent to orphanages and institutions where they are subjected to abuse and neglect.
There is minimal support available to parents who fight to keep their children with them. Maya’s Hope wants to help relieve some of the burden on these amazing parents and assist in keeping children with their families, where they belong.
Beautiful Nastya is one of the amazing children in our Ukrainian program. She has an extremely loving family who take very good care of her. But it is not easy. Her family live next the road, near an industrial area so there is a lot of dust and dirt in the air. Nastya needs special vents for her trach, to prevent debris entering her lungs. These vents are not available in Ukraine. We are raising funds to cover the cost of an air purifier for her room and a large supply of the special vents she needs for trach. Will you help us support this wonderful family?
