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.
Victor turns three next month. He has been diagnosed with West syndrome and cerebral palsy. He lives with his parents and sister. Victor needs frequent therapies and medical assessments. He is lactose and gluten intolerant, so finding foods he can safely eat is difficult and expensive for his parents.
His mother reached out to us, asking for help to buy formula for her son.
We are raising funds to provide Victor with formula for the next three months. Can you help?
