Together we`ve saved a little heart!

Dear friends, thanks to your help, we raised about $ 480. This money is a part of the amount, required to pay the surgery for Inessa I. Diagnosis: congenital heart defect.

Inessa was born on April 22 in 2015. Doctors did not observe any deviation in her health state. Only parents noticed that she is growing slowly. After some investigations heart pathology was detected. Doctors said that in order to survive and get well she will have to pass through several operations.

To make needed operation girl needs to get weight. Time passed, but disease did not let Inessa put some weight. When she was 7 months, she had only 5 kg. Parents addressed to the cardiologist again, but he refused to perform the operation - she was too small and it was very dangerous for her, as our specialists did not have needed equipment. Inessa’s family was in a vicious circle: low weight was contraindication for the operation, but disease was an impediment to gain weight.

Time kept running, Inessa got worse. Parents did not have money for a trip to Kiev, where they could get needed assistance. With the help of relatives and friends they could collect part of needed amount. Though baby girl entered the clinic rather late, and despite reserved prognosis of specialists, Inessa was operated on February 1st. The intervention was successful, baby felt better and started to grow.

But this was a short-term effect. Now she needs next operation. Thanks to your help, in the upcoming future, her mom and Inessa will travel to Ukraine, to Cardiological medical center for consultations and to make the surgery appointment.

We will keep following Inessa’s progress and we wish Inessa quick recovery.

Thank you for your support and good heart.

You helped Crusita to see.

Dear friends, thanks to your continuing support, we raised about $600. This money was used to pay the surgery  for  Crusita M. Diagnosis: congenital aphakia.

Crusita is   having  impaired vision from the very birth. In 2009 Crusita  had an operation in the State Children’s clinic “E. Cotsaga” to remove cataract. At that time doctors did not implant crystalline lens, and suggested to wait until she will reach 18 years old. But, because of problems with vision, she started to have very heavy headaches. Mother consulted “Ovisus” clinic, where, after a number of investigations doctors suggested to urgently perform implantation on both eyes.

Crusita’s family has financial difficulties. Mother can not work, because her daughter needs permanent care. Father does not have a labor contract, as there are no working  places available in the village they live, thus  he is doing  only small works at request. Because of the vision problems their daughter went to school later. Crusita is very diligent  pupil, she likes learning. But one of her eye is totally blind, and she can read and write only using the other one, being in glasses and with magnifying glass. Crusita wants to see as other people do.

Today she cannot see with her right eye, and with the left one her vision is only 5%. The glasses with big lens can improve just a little her eye sight.Crusita started her 9th year in the school, but because of her problem studies‘ outcome and relation ship with classmates are suffering.

Nevertheless, Crusita keeps positive attitude and hopes a lot that after operation her vision will improve considerably.

Very soon she will have intervention and both crystalline lens will be replaced. We wish Crusita soon recovery, strong health and much success at school.

We would like to thank all of you who offered in time assistance for our beneficiary.

A chance for Korina.

Dear friends, thanks to your help, we raised about $ 400.This money was used to pay the surgery for Korina M. Diagnosis: post-traumatic cataract with complications. Vitreo.

 Korina, who is the third child out of 5, once got a trauma while swinging on the playground. No one could thing that few years later the little girl will start having serious problem with her sight. Now Korina can not see with her left eye, and she is only 7. Nevertheless the girl can read good, and she is fond of English. Korina needs urgently an operation to remove cataract and to implant artificial crystalline lens. Doctors say that operation can not be postponed, if so the eye will have to be removed. Mother does not have money for this, she is raising her 5 children alone, she does not have a job, as there are no available working places in the village.

Some  time ago Korina was urgently operated. The intention was to remove cataract and to implant artificial eye lens. During the intervention doctors realized that Korina had swelling cataract, her eye could burst any time. Surgeons did all they could, but intervention was too late and the chance was lost. Doctors could save the eye physically, but not functionally. She will not be able to see with it anymore.

Doctors removed cataract and vitreous body from the wounded eye. Korina and her mother are at home already. The girl feels good. In two weeks the control check up is planned.

We wish Korina to get well and thank all people who contributed and offered help. Thank you so much for your care and support!
