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.
Vanya turns 3 years old this month. He has cerebral palsy which affects all of his limbs. His mother is raising him and his older brother alone, their father died when Vanya was only a few months old.
His mother reached out to us to ask for help for her son. He needs formula and diapers. We are raising funds to be able to provide these for him for the next 3 months.
