An orphanage director recently wrote. They need money to buy an orthopedic appliance. The total cost 1,970 euro.
Паша/Pasha (Paul) is now at the conservative treatment in the hospital. After this treatment he will need orthopedic appliances.
A few words about Pasha–
A year ago he had a surgery and we purchase the necessary orthopedic equipment.
During the past year he had massage and rehabilitation exercises with doctors from the clinic in St Petersburg.
Pasha was engaged on a daily basis with a physical education instructors of our orphanage, slept in the library, learned to stand, walk in orthopedic shoes using a walker.
He spent many hours in an orthopedic brace.
Today, Pasha can make a few steps without help of nurses, although a year ago he could move only by crawling.
On the first picture Pasha is sitting in a wheelchair – it’s in December 2010 before the surgery physical therapy.
Second picture – Pasha at a celebration of autumn, in November 2011, you can see the progress.
We hope that with your help we can give Pasha to obtain the necessary apparatus and a chance to learn to walk independently.
