In 2015, our goal is to help the 61 children who waiting for our help to fund their treatment and rehabilitation courses!
With your past support, we have helped:
Denis returned with good results after treatment in the Shamarina Rehabilitation Center.
The following rehabilitation measures were realized: - special gymnastics - straightening his legs - learning to walk with the ropes - balancing on the balls - horse therapy
During the time spent in the center, the specialists taught Denis to bring his knees to the correct position (they were crossed over each other). Over the last two years, Denis has grown a lot and the spasticity increased. For this reason, Denis has not been able to walk. Now, at home Denis walks with the support of his mother for short distances, without the need of a stroller!
And it's all thanks to You, dear donors! Thank You very much!
Help other children receive the necessary treatment! Tell your friends about us and ask them to support our project!

Hello from Russia! How are you our friend?!
We hope this good news show the changes we did in one little boy live!
In February one more Dream came true!
Every month we pay for operation or treatment for children with cerebral palsy. Last time it was little Dima (the name is changed). With Your help, Dima has been treated in China! In the clinic for children with cerebral palsy Arkan-Biwan all purposes for Dima were designed to develop contractures, reduce spasticity, improve the vestibular system, increase muscle strength and range of motion.
The child received the following treatment:
foot massage with pre-steaming in the decoction of herbs,
general and acupressure.
What was achieved during this course?
Most importantly - able to develop contractures at the wrist joints. Now it is much easier for Dima to hold the spoon, the boy learned to eat much faster and neater.
The force of arms increased, as well as the amount of movement in the hands.
Speech also became clearer and louder.
Of course, the cerebral palsy involves not one course of treatment, but Dima has improved and he is even closer to the goal-to learn all the skills of self-care! Dima’s family transmits a low bow and thanks to all who did not remain indifferent and helped".
We Express our deep appreciation to You for improving the quality of life of children with severe developmental disabilities! Your help is invaluable!
But still so many children need Your help! Tell your friends about us and friends, please support our project!
