Almost 15 years of neglect and a lack of medical care has taken it's toll on sweet Dasha. She is an orphan in Ukraine and has cerebral palsy. Her legs became so tight from not receiving regular therapy that her hip dislocated and her other joints were stiff and immobile. Our partner charity in Ukraine who has watched over her for many years recently funded two surgeries on her legs to make her more comfortable and mobile.
She now needs intensive physical therapy to help her get on her feet and hopefully walk! Our goal covers the cost of three rounds of therapy (10 days at a time), a fulltime caregiver to travel with her to the other region, accommodation, transportation and food for all three trips.
Her orphanage cannot cover the cost of the therapy and appeals to local authorities were denied. Without our support Dasha could not receive this much needed therapy!
