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.
Timofey was born in August 2018, he developed well, had a good appetite and was gradually gaining weight. At four months, Timofey was hospitalized with bronchitis. Then he was transferred to an infectious diseases hospital, as liver problems were discovered. Then we went to Kiev, for additional examinations. Four bowel operations were performed.
Timofey has been diagnosed with primary severe combined immunodeficiency, secondary lactose deficiency and epileptic syndrome. Before he was active, crawling, sitting, playing with toys, ate, talking, smiling and everything. We rejoiced. Then his condition worsened. Timofey was in the hospital, he become very lethargic.
To maintain his weight and give him more energy, Maya's Hope has provided him with Peptamen junior since September 2020. His condition improved and he was able to go home.
He now needs a bone marrow transplant. To have this, he needs an expensive IV medication. His family are unable to afford this medication themselves.
Can you help us purchase IV medication for Timofey as well as his Peptamen for the next 3 month?
