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.
"Our long-awaited son Sasha has serious health problems after a difficult pregnancy and premature birth. The baby went through an operation on the eyes at two months, repeatedly fought for life in intensive care, went through many tests and now has the following diagnoses: spastic tetraparesis due to a malformation of the brain with a delay in all types of development, partial atrophy of the optic nerves.
Since birth, we have been spending colossal sums on treatment and rehabilitation. Also, a lot of funds are spent on personal hygiene products, namely diapers. Due to the strong spasticity, it is very difficult for Sasha to put on ordinary diapers. Sashulya also needs special food, because is on a gluten-free and casein-free diet. Neocate Junior blend is recommended.
The family has already exhausted all reserves of funds. I am on maternity leave and receive disability benefits for my child. The husband has a disability of group 3, receives a minimum disability pension, and tries to work according to his illness. We really need financial support, so I am asking you for help. I beg you to help us. I will be very grateful! I hope for your positive decision. Thank you in advance!"
Can you help us provide Sasha with formula and diapers for the next three months?
