An unusual child lives with his mother in the village of Demidov, Kiev region. In his eleven years, Anton Livkovets lives with a cataract in both eyes. In addition, he has secondary strabismus in both eyes. He is a disabled child. Anton’s problems started from birth. Barely born, the child did not breathe and was in intensive care in Boyarka. For a week the baby was fed through a tube. "Anton was sleeping with his eyes half open, his mother writes. And when the commission passed at school, they told me that he had a complicated cataract in both eyes".
At the age of 11, Angelina weighs 23 kg. The little girl has been fighting a serious disease all of her life and she hardly has any energy left to grow. The disease called cystic fibrosis affects her digestion and food absorption processes. Firstly, CF patients require special diet that includes high-quality nutritional products, and there are times when the girl has to do without them, since her family honestly can't always afford it. Secondly, Angelina must take enzyme products with every meal, otherwise, she won't be able to eat at all. Thirdly, even if the first two requirements are met, they're not enough to provide for her growth – the girl also needs to receive special high-calorie products. We ask that you help Angelina's mom stock up on these products to get them through winter.
Sometimes children start to fight for their lives right from the moment of birth, but in the case of Vadim — life did not even give him the opportunity to fully form and gain strength in his mother's tummy. The boy was born when his mother Elena was only 6 months pregnant! His weight was only 1.4 kg, the baby could not breathe on its own, because of which Vadimchik was in intensive care for some time. These were extremely difficult days for the boy's parents, the mom recalls with pain: “It's so hard to look at your baby when he's lying down with tubes, helpless, and you realize you can't help.”
What would you choose: the chances of facing a serious illness and its unpredictable severe complications or immediate protection from its onset, if available? Our children born with cystic fibrosis already know the cost of their health. They and their families are forced to fight for their lives every day, and it takes every ounce of their strength. Any concurrent disease is difficult to fight with and can become fatal. It wasn't possible to protect these children from the genetic lottery, but at least we can protect them from concurrent diseases which can be kept in check.
In November 2018, Kyivstar, together with the Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace, launched the project “Children's Hope” to help children with heart and cancer diseases in Ukrainian hospitals.
Right now you can become a good wizard who saves children from mortal danger. And there is no exaggeration in it. The main enemy that kills patients with cystic fibrosis is pulmonary infections. They reproduce well in the airways of such children, and it is very difficult to drive them out. It is necessary to have treatment with powerful antibiotics, and it is expensive. In addition, regular sterilization of all the equipment of an ill child helps to fight the infectious agents. Most moms just boil it in pots. But this is not a way out, this way is not good enough. Our children need sterilizers.
The 9-year-old Nazar is not quite like his peers: he cannot sit, walk, does not understand everything and speaks words very poorly.

Since then, as many as 9 years have passed, but the condition of the boy is still in serious condition.
