The child was put on artificial respiration. For these two years, the parents have been treating the baby, have been rehabilitating him, and bring him to the doctors for diagnositics. In Ukraine, a child with such a set of diseases and problems cannot be helped. The primary task is to stop the epileptic seizures. It is necessary to examine the child and to find the right treatment. They are ready to do this in the epileptic center in Bonn, Germany. The bill amounts to EUR 3,000.

Funds to raise: EUR 3,000

Tatiana followed Germanic studies and studied philology, gold embroidery, theology and pedagogy in three Russian universities. For about 20 years she has been teaching gold embroidery and church sewing in various parishes in Russia, as well as in Germany. In 1991, for the first time in Russia, she got an advanced implant set by a German professor Ernst Lenhardt. Yet a recent observation in Germany revealed that already for a long time the implant should be replaced. This is still impossible to do in Russia. The reimplantation surgery in Germany is required, the cost of which is EUR 40,000.

Nicolay B.

Age: 6 y. o.
Residence: St. Petersburg, Russia
Diagnosis: pulmonary fibrosis, retinopathy, maldsorption syndrome, celiac disease, bleeding disorder
Required: diagnostics in Germany
Funds to raise: EUR 32,500

Nicolay, along with his twin brother, was born a way before the due date – at the 27th week of pregnancy. Both brothers are disabled from birth. Yet Nicolay was the least fortunate. On the second month of his life, he was diagnosed with the retinopathy of prematurity. The child underwent 4 eye surgeries with a period of 1-2 months, but but they were not able to save his vision. Later, the oxygen deficiency began to develop and grew into the pulmonary fibrosis. Now he requires a constant oxygen ventilation. At the background of this disease, the child developed hypotrophy (he refuses to eat). At the age of 6, the child weighs 11 kg with the lenght of 94 cm. He is fed through a gastrostoma. Due to the low immunity, the child gets to intensive care at any slightest SARS. Every year Nicolay undergoes all the necessary observations and treatments, but his condition worsens, and the doctors in Russia cannot help him. The doctors from the St. Augustine Clinic in Germany suggest that it is possible to improve his condition by precise dosing of medecine.
For this, the clinic sets a bill of EUR 32,500.
