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.
Antonina is 5 years old. She has cerebral palsy and microcephaly. She lives with her mother and grandmother. She is surrounded by love, but finances are tight. Her family have asked for help with purchasing diapers for her.
$200 is needed to purchase diapers for Antonina for the next SIX months. Want to help?
