Every day, the mother exercises with her son for 3-5 hours. On his own, Dmitry can only crawl, stand, sit and walk with support. The mother raises the son alone, she teaches and trains him. The funds for technical support are not lacking, the equipment one can get does not suit. Dmitry gets older, is growing and gains weight. It becomes more and more difficult for the mother to handle this. They require a verticalizer or a walker so that Dmitry spends more time standing.
Such a verticalizer costs about EUR 1,000.
We would also appreciate the contacts of the organizations and sponsors, who are ready to donate or lend this device to the family.

Diagnosis: relapsed neuroblastoma
Needs: help with a debt for housing
Funds to raise: EUR 4,000

In 2013, the doctors in Rostov had refused to operate on a large tumor of Camila, that affected vital organs. The Koraev family, with the support of Russian charitable foundations, has arrived to Germany. At University Hospital of Munich, the girl has undergone a long and difficult, but successful operation. Unfortunately, a few months later, the insidious disease has relapsed. Camila was sent for further treatment to Cologne University Hospital. The long-term therapy was successful, and happy parents with baby Camila were able to return to their native Ossetia. However, after three years of living at home, the disease made itself felt again. All energy was again thrown into fundraising in order to quickly resume the necessary treatment in Germany. Since 2017, Camila has been treated and observed in Cologne. Her parents and younger brother have to stay with her at the clinic, while another daughter is left for the care of relatives. The family lives in a guest house for children with cancer. They have a debt for this housing, which must be paid off before the end of the year. The debt is about EUR 4,000.

Residence: Irkutsk region, Russia
Diagnosis: congenital epidermolysis bullosa, dystrophic form
Required treatment: emergency surgery in Germany
Funds to raise: EUR 53,400; EUR 1000 every month.

We know Masha for a long time. She was one of the first to whom the Diaconia “Good Deed” has helped in 2012, at the very beginning of our development. Then Masha was a tiny baby, almost without skin. She and her family have to go a harsh way to deal with an incurable disease. Owing to the efforts of the parents and help of kind people, amazing results have been achieved. Now she is a beautiful girl who loves to study, goes to school and plays the piano. We are glad that we were able to help then, and we hope that we can help now.
The disease has not gone, the fight is going on. Masha’s body is covered with wounds that hurt and itch. During her short life, she has already undergone several operations to expand the esophagus, and reorganize the oral cavity. Another complication of the disease is the contracture of the fingers, the fingers stuck to each other like mittens. Masha needs an urgent operation NOW.
The Freiburg Clinic billed 33,510 euros for the hand operation.
Masha also constantly requires expensive dressings, mainly UrgoTul dressings, which can be bought in Europe. She requires either money for dressings (about 1000 euros per month) or the dressings themselves (80 UrgoTul dressings size 15-20 or 10-40).

Residence: St. Petersburg, Russia
Diagnosis: pharmaco-resistant focal structural epilepsy
Required treatment: emergency surgery in Germany
Funds to raise: EUR 50,572

Vanya is the long-coveted second child in the family. At the age of 2.5 months, Vanya has suffered an extensive cerebral hemorrhage due to the lack of vitamin K (it is not given to newborns in Russia). An emergency operation was performed, as a result the right hemisphere of the brain was practically lost and the paralysis of the left side of the body has developed. At the age of 9 months, another diagnosis came – that is epilepsy. For a year, they managed to stop the attacks with medication. But at some point, the medications ceased to help, and now the attacks occur several times a day. Local doctors and tests did not reveal epi-activity in the child. The family turned to the German clinic Schon in the city of Vogtaroit, where an examination was carried out and a diagnosis was made with the recommendation for a surgery to separate the cerebral hemispheres.
Despite his difficult diagnosis, Vanya is able to walk on his own, eat and talk. He attends a special kindergarten, music classes, a speech therapist, goes to the pool and for hippotherapy. Vanya is a very social, musical, positive and courageous boy. But, in order for him to develop and live a full life, an urgent surgery is required. They need EUR 50,572.
