Dear friends, we are happy to report that your donation helped four-year-old Kira and six other children attend physical therapy treatments at a total cost of UAH 134,800 (USD 4,607.78).
We support children with disabilities victimised by the war - those forcibly displaced, raised in single-parent households, and those whose families can’t make ends meet due to employment and deepening poverty.
Physical therapy is a vital form of treatment for children with disabilities; it helps improve motor skills and prevent movement problems from getting worse over time, empowering children with disabilities to achieve the best possible independence and well-being. Children’s ability to access treatments essential to their development shouldn't have to depend on the financial ability of their families. But unfortunately, in Ukraine, children from impoverished families can’t access the healthcare they need to survive and live a quality life. In the hope of helping their children, parents turn to charities for support.
Without help, children often become trapped in cycles of poverty and poor health, and we are very grateful to you for giving this chance to Ukrainian children with disabilities to live a more fulfilled life with less pain.
Dear friends, with this update, we would like to highlight the importance of your support to Ukrainian children with disabilities.
As the war drags on, vulnerable families in Ukraine are struggling to survive. Soaring prices, scarce resources, and delays to state support payments mean that families affected by the war rely on the kindness of strangers to afford for their children the basic needs, such as food, clothing, and treatments that children with disabilities require regularly.
Every day, we receive requests for help from families in despair. One of the families we support is the family of Olga L. Olga is a mum of 2 boys, one of whom has a disability. Olga finds it hard to provide for her family, as having a child with disabilities means she can only accept jobs that offer flexible hours. The family's situation worsened as their home was damaged during the fighting. Olga is working on developing her business offering hairdressing services - to be able to work from home and provide for her family. Earlier, we supported Olga by purchasing hairdressing tools for her venture, and this time, we were happy to help her son Danil attend his physical rehabilitation course.
We are so fortunate to be able to answer cries for help - thanks to our donors. This time, we made payments of UAH 171509 (USD 5862.57) towards physical treatments for nine children with disabilities.
Thank you so much for stepping in to help! We couldn't do it without you!
Dear friends, with deep appreciation, thank you for supporting disabled children in Ukraine. One year on, the war continues ravaging our country with no end in sight. Your incredible support enables us to answer cries for help from families in despair; behind each request is the life of a child living through the war. Constant air raid sirens and safety concerns as attacks on civilians continue is a reality for Ukrainians. Many families we support are unable to afford basic everyday essentials, not to mention the rehabilitation treatment a child with disabilities requires on a regular basis. This puts parents - primarily single mothers - through enormous stress. Although they are doing everything in their capacity to help their children, they need help.
Your support has allowed ten children with disabilities to attend physical therapy courses at a total cost of UAH 199874 (USD 6832.15). We cannot thank you enough for stepping in to help children with disabilities in Ukraine during these horrendous times! Thank you for standing with Ukraine and its vulnerable children!
Warm regards, Natalie Blinder Founder of Bright Kids Charity
