Almost every day in Ukraine, 1 child with Down syndrome is born. Almost 100 children with Down syndrome visit the Early Development Center of the All-Ukrainian charity organization Down Syndrome every month. For 15 years of existence, the foundation remains the only one in Ukraine who works with such children on such a large scale, systemically and professionally.

Playing football is useful for children with disabilities from a physical point of view because it improves memory and coordination, and at the same time helps them to socialize in a team. In the future, club members can enter the National Team of Ukraine and take part in Special Olympics, where football is among the five most popular sports. So, this year, Ukrainian football players were the first among 25 women's football teams from around the world at the Special Olympics in the United Arab Emirates. And we are sure that this is not the last victory, but only an additional motivation for the emergence of new Ukrainian teams.
My name is Ellert Alexander, I am an actor at Liga Smeha in “Luhansk national team”, a scriptwriter at “Kvartal 95” and a professional event host. In modern world with its speedy lifestyle and crazy working schedules, people stopped noticing the most important events, days and people. PEOPLE who need our attention, respect and LOVE. I am talking about people with Down syndrome. People we CAN’T turn away from. People whom we need to accept as they are. People with whom we should be happy for their victories and supporting when they fail in something initially. They are learning, they are discovering the world, they are making their best and they CAN. And we CAN and will help these sunny children!

I am Denys Muradov, more known as “Bald from Luhansk national team”. I have faced many difficult life challenges, which have taught me two things: never give up and help others. And I admire children who don’t give up since the day they have been born. In order to help them to preserve their courageous spirit, we need to support them! Together we are power, strength, charisma!
