Philip overcoming his hearing impairment


Philip is a wonder! He is such a positive little boy with amazing eyes! He is attentive, looks at his surroundings with great interest and successfully masters them.  He started coming to the club with his mum, Natalia, and his brother, Makar, when he was very little, only a few months old.  In January we celebrated his first birthday at our club.  Philip plays happily and is learning to hear and listen to music, songs and he tries to pronounce individual sounds and words.  He likes everything and is very ready to smile at the other children and the grown-ups.

Natalia, mum to Philip and Makar, is also very positive.  Both her boys have impaired hearing, and both have cochlear implants, which can replace the sensation of hearing, particularly when installed early and with appropriate support to get used to them.  Natalia is very happy to share her experience with other parents at the club, and encourages other families to come and join us.  Just recently, two more families with young children with impaired hearing have joined us, but we know there are so many that need our help.

If you donate on Wednesday 14th March, there is every chance that Global Giving will add 30% to your donation meaning that your donation will provide more support to Philip, his family, and the other hearing impaired children in St Petersburg.  Donate early, to have the best chance of your donation attracting a bonus. (This offer is not open to supporters donating via the UK Global Giving site).
