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 burdens on these amazing parents and assist in keeping children with their families, where they belong.
Nazar is 6 years old and has cerebral palsy. He lives with his parents in rural Ukraine. His father is currently unable to work after an accident which damaged his leg, which puts a huge financial strain on the family.
Nazar needs formula which his family is unable to afford. He needs it to gain weight. At 6 years old he weighs less than 30 pounds. He also needs diapers.
Can we join together to help a child in need in these hard times?
