Diaconia Good Deed
Dima S., 10 years old, cerebral palsy, dislocation of the hip joint. An urgent operation is required in Germany. Funds to collect: EUR 25,000.
Dima was admitted to intensive care immediately after birth, and spent a month in the hospital. Cerebral palsy was diagnosed and his disability was certified.
The cerebral palsy treatment has began: the fight against time, the war for every minute, since the faster the correct treatment starts, the greater is the chance for the child's recovery.
Dima went to massage courses, did physiotherapy every day, and attended developmental training. At first, he began to keep his head with more confidence, then sit down with support, and roll over. Then he got on his feet and made the first steps, the steps so long-awaited.
Suddenly everything was stopped. Dima was found to have a complete dislocation of the hip joint on his left leg. He was forbidden to stand. Dima lies and constantly cries from pain. His muscles are gradually weakening, and urgent surgery is required.
They can help Dima in Germany, at the Aschau clinic. The doctor said that the case is difficult, the operation will take 5 hours, but he is up to the challenge. The operation and hospital stay cost 25 thousand euros. The family does not have that kind of money: they live from paycheck to paycheck and they also have a younger daughter.
The mother writes:"We really need your help. We ask everyone who is not indifferent to someone else's misfortune to help Dima. We will be grateful for any help that will make Dima to stand up again. Dima really wants to walk and run like all children!"
