Rehabilitation for 35 Deaf Children from Ukraine


Many Ukrainian families had to flee their homes to escape Russian aggression. Among them are children with hearing issues, who need our help to support them with timely rehabilitation. To achieve this, our instructors are continuing our online rehabilitation program. In July thirty Ukrainian children 3-7 y.o., were able to complete this rehabilitation course from different locations.

Sasha and Liza, who are 5 and 3 years old, are two children from Kiev. They have hearing issues and use hearing implants. Their mother uses the same hearing implant and keeps it on even at night to hear the sounds of air raid alerts. She is very thankful for our online program that delivers the necessary support to her children during the war time. Currently this is the only option to receive rehabilitation support, which would be impossible without our dear sponsors and their generous contributions. Thank you very much to all of You. We hope that very soon we can restart in-person rehabilitation classes in our free and independent Ukraine.

Sincerely,

Ukraine is suffering from savage aggression by Russia. Large number of ukrainians had to flee to survive: some moved to safer regions, while others had to leave their homeland. Two of our educators evacuated to the city of Truskavets in western Ukraine, where they continue rehabilitation work with local children and immigrants from other areas, as well as deliver online classes to small groups from other regions.

During this time, rehabilitation was carried out for 20 children, 8 sessions for each child. In addition, children evacuated from other regions of Ukraine could also undergo a course of rehabilitation at a local sanatorium.

We hope that very soon we will be able to continue offering rehabilitation camps for children and their parents in liberated independent Ukraine. 

We want to thank our sponsors for their support during these challenging times. 

Sincerely,
Larysa Kuzmenko

Project “Verba” is an on-line program developed for children with speech and hearing impairments, which continues to provide them with safe access to rehabilitation of hearing and speech after cochlear implant surgery despite the ongoing COVID pandemic.

Following the initial 4 online sessions, parents’ satisfaction with the program scored at 98%. Based on post-session assessments, children’s auditory perception improved by 50%, and the level of speech skills grew by 30-40%.

These results inspire our team to continue creating rehabilitation sessions for children, which, in our observation, not only serve as a catalyst for learning but also stimulate parents’ engagement during the rehabilitation process.

Following rehabilitation, our children adopt well to social environments, communicate well with friends and family, some learn how to play musical instruments and others are starting to attend regular schools.

Our next online project, scheduled for January 20th, 2022, will help thirty 3–7-year-old children from various regions of Ukraine. Some kids are coming from large families.

We want to express our sincere gratitude to our sponsors, whose contributions support our work. Your ongoing support offers a chance for children to develop their hearing and speaking ability, which will help them greatly in schools and relationships.

Kind regards,
Project Leader

Today is a very special day for Dennis, he is going to the first grade. The only difference between him and his peers is that Dennis is using hearing aids. Besides that, he is just as active and as curious as his classmates. Thanks to our project, following rehabilitation, 120 children with cochlear implants and hearing aids joined the first grade at regular schools instead of enrolling into learning centers for children with disabilities.
Little Pavel from Severodonetsk received his implants when he was 11 months old. He went through rehabilitation at our “Dachny” camp at the age of 3, and completed 2 rehabilitation on-line sessions. This work made it possible for him to go to the first grade this September.
We have many more similar stories that inspire us and give us the drive to continue supporting children experiencing hearing issues through rehabilitation and training. I hope our sponsors feel the same way.  
Currently our Fund is preparing for our next online training session, as 60 more children with hearing issues from all over Ukraine are waiting their turn to go through rehabilitation. In October we plan to conduct 2 more online sessions.
We want to thank you, our current and new sponsors, for your donations and your support for our cause.
Sincerely,

Project Manager,

Larysa Kuzmenko
