Summary

Since Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022, Ukrainian children have confronted unthinkable losses. Many face reduced access to medical services, and an estimated two-thirds of children have been forcibly displaced, with millions living in contact zones. The war impacts the poverty-stricken's ability to afford care, and families of disabled children - usually single mothers - suffer the most. We help struggling families of children with disabilities access essential treatments.

Challenge

The trauma of war has reshaped Ukrainian society. The pension for children with disabilities is dismal and uncertain. Most of the children we support have cerebral palsy, and they require regular treatments to reduce pain. These families cannot flee. They cannot afford to. Their access to care has diminished as war engulfed the country. We aim to provide these families with the means to access essential health services.

Solution

We support forcibly displaced and impoverished families to afford treatment for disabled children because no one should be left behind. We ensure that affected Ukrainian children with disabilities have access to remedial therapies. Physical therapy helps reduce pain and aims to improve neurological and sensory function. Regular treatment may significantly improve some children's gross motor function, balance, coordination, and vocalization. Such care is essential to children's well-being.

Long-Term Impact

No child should live in pain, and war should not keep children from accessing fundamental health care. Bright Kids Charity is helping the most vulnerable people in our society. By supporting people in need, you help defend democracy and social welfare. Our work creates space for society's most vulnerable kids to be remembered and elevated. We recognize the importance of all people, and we leave no one behind.
