In Ukraine, parents of children with special needs are encouraged to hand their children over to state care. They are told their children are a burden on society. Children are sent to 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.
Ukraine is currently in quarantine due to COVID-19. To help some of the most vulnerable, we are purchasing and delivering essential supplies to families of children with special needs in Ukraine.
It all happened suddenly. One day the Nazar stopped responding to his parents' words, started tantrums out of nothing, and then fell asleep anywhere except in bed. A worried mother took her son to the doctor. He was diagnosed with Autism. His mother fights each day to care for her son and provide him with what he needs. It isn't easy, but she loves her son.
Nazar is 9 years old. He is in need of diapers and medicines? Can you help this family?
