Our stories

Why do we do our work? Look at the faces of these kids, you'll understand. We want to share with you some stories of our little heroes.

After watching the series "Molodezhka" about junior team of ice hockey players Sasha finally decided that he would become a hockey player. This winter the kid asked Santa Claus for skates and he keeps watching all games. But he can’t appear on the ice. For now it is impossible. The boy has cerebral palsy and severely deformed feet. He is able to walk without help, but he is far from skating.

Sasha is 10 years old. This year he moved to the 4th grade of secondary school. He has a wonderful teacher. "Largely because of her attempts Sasha feels comfortable among normal children," says the mom. The study troubles him, but the boy tries hard. He reads a lot and loves the school subject called "The world around us".

After school Sasha goes to the bicycle section, where he rides usual bikes with other guys and learns to cycle.

Sasha likes the section, but he often falls ill and has to miss classes. Sasha is soft, very kind and strong, he tries to do everything perfectly. Instructors in the rehabilitation centres praise him, call him "the man" and emphasize his diligence and power of will. Boy gets upset when he sees that he's not following the other children. He's always asking his mom what is wrong with him. What can she answer? Mary explains to her son that he should do his best in order to overcome this challenge.

The doctors say that if the boy continues the rehabilitation, he can master his pattern of walk. A few months ago he and his mother returned from rehabilitation courses paid for by our Organization. "After each rehabilitation course he is getting stronger and stronger. I love my son and hope for the best," says Sasha's mother.
