Lives Changed in Ukraine

ChildAid helped them smile.
Date published: 6 Mar 2017 |

In the summer of 2015 we spoke about how Children’s Heart helped Veronika who lives in Kamianske (formerly Dniprodzerzhynsk) in Ukraine. Our partners helped her to get the benefits she was entitled to for her son, Vanya, who was born with a congenital clubfoot.

They had been abandoned by Vanya’s father and were living in a borrowed apartment with no real income.

Veronika attended Children’s Hearts group for the parents of disabled children. They all greatly encouraged and supported her, and persuaded her to take her son to a local hospital, but they were not at all helpful. The group then encouraged her to take Vanya to a clinic in nearby Dnipro. This centre sent Vanya for an operation which, after a long recovery period, was a total success so that he no longer has a clubfoot.

Also, her husband returned and with Veronika coming to Christ thanks to ChildAid’s partner, she told him she wanted a different life to that previous. He has since stopped drinking and has a
steady job.

Lives have truly been transformed thanks to your support of this small, but incredible project in eastern Ukraine.
