We believe that miracles happen

Roman is an orphan. He is six years old. He is deaf in both ears and, unfortunately, was not diagnosed with deafness right away. A few months ago he received a cochlear implant and today he is gradually discovering the world of sounds for himself.

Roman had an implant surgery when he was already six. By this age children’s hearing and speech are well developed. Without hearing memory it is very difficult for Roman to recognize most common sounds of wind or a car driving by. Our Fund made a commitment to help Roman. We invited him to two of our online rehabilitation programs. After his first online program, Roman was able to distinguish between some sounds and say his first words. He focused and worked very hard through each exercise.

Roman is currently attending the 1st grade at a regular school, while working with receiving additional support from our instructors through online sessions. Roman's story reminds us that miracles do happen, we just have to believe in them!

Along with Roman, 29 more children, assisted by our 4 instructors, successfully completed the online program. Training materials developed by our specialists help children continue learning at home with their parents. All our children will receive Christmas presents for Christmas.

In January and Fabruary we are planning to deliver two more online programs for 60 more children.

Online learning allows us to continue our work and effectively manage health risks for all of the participants.

We would like to express our gratitude to all who took part in this project, our sponsors and to the entire GlobalGiving Team.

Sincerely, Larysa Kuzmenko

Project Manager
