*Misha is 9 years old and has a cochlear implant. Before the war he
completed one rehabilitation course online and was already seeing positive
results. Unfortunately, at a very young age, Misha had to experience the terror
of war. His family is from Severodonetsk in the Luhansk region, which is
currently occupied by Russian invaders. Misha and his family spent 2 weeks
hiding underground from regular bombardments. Aside from experiencing a significant
psychological trauma, Misha’s hearing and speech ability declined. His
apartment building was destroyed and he and his family were able to evacuate to
Kyiv. Misha wrote a letter to us, where he told his difficult story and asked
us to include him in our next online rehabilitation program. In
September-October 2022 we formed a group of 30 children who mainly came from
regions impacted by war. Misha was included in that group and after completing
this course, he saw improvements in his speech and hearing.
Once again, we would like to express our sincere thanks to all our
Sponsors, whose generosity and care allow us to continue supporting children
with hearing and speech disabilities during war.
We hope that very soon, after Ukraine wins the war, we will resume in-person
rehabilitation camps which help children hear voices of their family and
friends instead of sounds of explosions.
