My name is Barbara, but this site is not about me. :) 2 years ago I met a fantastic woman, Bianka. She works as a teacher at the school for disabled children in Hungary. She told her story and melted my heart.
She was born as a Hungarian child in Romania. At age of 7 she was blinded by Botulism. Since there was no antibody in he country at that time, the family smuggled medicines from Hungary and later taken her.
Her healing was a real miracle so she decided that if she grew up, she would be helping disabled children. She moved to Hungary and graduated on Faculty of Special Needs Education and started to work in a school for kids with special needs.
At the same time she became therapy dog trainer, and she met with Mese ("FairyTale") the golden retriever. They became inseparable companions. Mese is very clever and talented therapy dog, with a huge, big heart. :) She "can read"or mimic the kids movements.
After a year, the owner of Mese’s brother has suddenly died. Bianka adopted him, so Repeta (his name means “Once more”) became a new member of the family.
He is also therapy dog, he is the “calm Buddha” of the team
Repeta and Mese works a lot, not only with handicapped kids, or kids with autism, but with those with learning (reading-dyslexia or counting-dyscalculia) disabilities too.
But unfortunately Mese has had severe health problem, and has undergone joint surgery.Bianka and her husband spent lot of time and money for her rehabilitation. Now she needs more time to relax and regenerate than before.
But more and more kids are waiting for their help. So Bianka needs to train another dogs too, and after Mese's therapy's costs, they haven't got enough money for it.
She didn't ask me anything, but when I saw her expertise and her passion about helping the kids, and her love with Mese and Repeta, I decided to help. Please let her make this miracle available for more and more kids!
