If she could ask Dasha frank questions about how she lives with cystic fibrosis, she would probably tell how endless inhalations and droppers bothered her, how painful her veins “collapsed” and the nurse looking for a place for an injection. How sad it is when there is a lot of treatment in life, and communication with peers is not enough. And also about how hard it is to think that your present and future depends on whether there is enough money for all prescribed medications.
CF "Pomogaem"Дніпропетровськ, вул. Красна, 3а
CF "Pomogaem" was founded in 2009 by volunteers who worked in the children's hospitals, helped seriously ill children, and foster parents who took care of orphans. This determined the main areas for charity of the Fund.

Is thirteen years much or little? What is it like to remain at this age without parental care? And if even the doctors discovered a terrible disease, on whom to rely, to whom to run for help, who will protect? Not every adult can cope with such circumstances, and Diana has been living this way not for the first year. She has been struggling for 5 years: first with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and now with his relapse. From the first days of her life, her mother left the girl, did not take part in the life of Diana, and soon she was gone. The girl has a father, but he also does not add up with parental responsibilities. Diana is engaged in volunteers and medical staff.

To make new steps in development, the baby needs your help.
Nephropathy of pregnant women is an insidious thing, it may be limited to the observation of doctors, and may lead to placental abruption. This is exactly what happened with Yana in the 33rd week of pregnancy when Dania was born. The baby was strenuously nursed, but a premature birth led to the diagnosis of cerebral palsy. It is very sad for relatives to see that the active, emotional boy is limited in movement by his own muscles. But parents do not lose heart, Dania and even more so. Let's help Dana to continue the struggle on the rehabilitation front!
Bilateral vascular malformation – these complex words actually look like a maroon spot on a girl's face. Not one year Dasha learned to take her reflection, to establish contact with peers, to remain indifferent to the sidelong glances of strangers. And in parallel with this, there was a constant fight against the disease - cosmetic laser correction procedures, from which the stain gradually turned pale. The treatment is nearing completion, but now another procedure is needed at a cost of UAH 38,950. Native girls ask you to help make this last spurt.
Vlada is a mobile girl, she enthusiastically goes in for athletics, but at the same time, she finds it difficult to bring a spoon to her mouth during meals.

To consolidate the success and acquire new skills, she really needs to continue rehabilitation!
Do you know what a "child from the system" is? So foster parents call children who grew up in boarding schools. And the longer the child stayed there, the harder this diagnosis. It’s harder then to form his understanding of the value of family, love and mutual support. For 10 years we have been supporting orphans and for 10 years we are dissuading donors from helping orphanages. But helping a foster family means giving it a resource to take another child. Instead of bringing gifts to orphanages, we invite you to support the festival of foster families "Christmas meetings".

"I have already participated in the UBB fundraising marathon, having successfully raised funds for children with Down syndrome. This fall, I'm running so that my friend's mom can beat cancer. When our children are born, we see a new parent-child relationship and begin to appreciate in a new way the only person to whom we can come up with the request “to take on our hands”. Mother is the only support of my friend Maria.
