Help 30 Russian kids with hearing loss communicate

Make your gift go further to help deaf children

Today is Global Giving bonus day! This means that if you donate to help children with hearing loss in Russia via Global Giving US, the kind people at Global Giving will add 40%*.

This is a fantastic opportunity to help us reach our target to help 15 Russian babies and toddlers with hearing loss to communicate.  Your donations will help fund our club attended by twins Christina and Karina aged three and a half.  Hearing loss is just part of Christina's disability.  She also has cerebral palsy and is unable to walk.  Her sister Karina can hear but she comes to the club too so the sisters can learn to communicate with each other.  The twin's mother says that they get excited as soon as they start getting ready to go to the club, and they don't want to leave at the end of the session.  Meanwhile, their mother and grandmother have lots of questions for the specialists and the other parents.  Their only regret is that they didn't find the club sooner.

So please do make a donation today to help Christina and Karina.  You can also help by sharing with your friends via social media or old fashioned word of mouth.

Thank you so much!

*On donations of up to $1,000 donated via US Global Giving on Wednesday 13th June while match funds last.
