New Hope for Mansur

We have some good news to share.  In June we helped a young man from Dagestan travel to Italy for surgery on his spine.  Five years ago Mansur hurt his back while playing soccer, and since then he has been suffering from increasing weakness in his legs that left him in a wheelchair by 19 years of age.  

Over time, Mansur traveled to over a dozen of clinics around Russia, but none of them was able to offer anything other than physical therapy.  We helped Mansur find a specialist in Italy who recommended surgery to strengthen his spine and prevent further deterioration.  After the procedure Mansur's condition improved significantly:  he no longer has seizures or back pains, and can walk on his own.  With appropriate rehabilitation, he should continue to improve over time. 

We were happy to help Mansur with the costs of lodging while in Italy and wish him complete recovery.   Your support made a very tangible difference for this young man.  Thank you very much! 

On July 16th you can make even more impact during Bonus day.  All donations of $1000 or less will earn 50% bonus. So donate early - starting at 9 am EDT - as bonus funds tend to run out quickly.   And if you like what we do, tell your friends! 

Thanks again for everything that you do.
