Misha is 4 years old and has cerebral palsy. His mother passed away just days after his birth due to a doctor's error. His devoted father has been by his side every step of the way.
Misha recently needed an urgent surgery which resulted in his lower body being in a cast and immobile for several weeks.
He is now in need of intensive physical therapy to restore the function he has lost and to continue to improve.
Please help us reach our goal and show your support this amazing little family who has overcome so much.
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.
