Little cripples from a forgotten village are suffering from an inability to buy even diapers!
23 мая 2016
13-year-old Vanya Dzubenko and 4-year-old Milena Poplavskaya are hardly surviving in a small town of Ochertyanka, Gitomirska region. Both have Cerebral Palsy, burdened by enuresis. Vanya and three little sisters are being raised by an old grandma (their mother is a heavy alcoholic), Milena is raised by a single mother. Cerebral Palsy had paralyzed Vanya's whole lower body, while infection in his leg had almost lead to amputation. Everyday Vanya needs 10 diapers, but his grandma's pension is only enough for a few. Milena does not walk or talk due to Cerebral Palsy. Her mother cannot work, for the girl needs constant care. In order to pay for the washing machine (things of the handicap need to be washed everyday), the woman gave away the last piece of land that was feeding them.
Project's goal is to collect 20 000 UAH in order to provide Vanya and Milena with diapers that are needed like air!
