Cute kittens to grab your attention.
But Baby Lavin is an infant child that needs your help Now!
She is a recognised refugee from Kurdish Syria, and was born in Cyprus with Cerebral Palsy, following a horrendous journey from war torn Syria by her mother, father and two small brothers.
She may struggle to walk, but she shouldn’t struggle to laugh and dream.
You can help us change the destiny of Baby Lavin living with Cerebral Palsy by making a donation NOW!
What WE Want NOW:
- As the first part of our campaign we aim to provide Baby Lavin with a special needs stroller by EIO. This Tomato Stroller has all support that she needs and will enable her mother to walk her the 3km to hospital and back twice a week for physiotherapy sessions.
- Our second goal is to purchase a Sleep Pod that will allow Baby Lavin to sleep in a supported and secure position ensuring her airways and lungs remain clear of fluids and thus allowing her to breathe without problems and importantly without a ventilator.
- Our third goal is to provide support cushions and a therapy mat which will allow her family to give Baby Lavin her recommended daily physiotherapy sessions on the floor of her own home.
You can truly change Baby Lavin’s life. Even though many children are impacted by the diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy, the Cypriot government funding to support Cerebral Palsy care, cure, and rehabilitation is nearly non-existent. So, we’re working to make a difference on her behalf.
Here’s the Cerebral Palsy Reality:
Imagine the excitement of being a new parent, only to discover your baby is born with a physical disability that will change the way he or she experiences the world. In an instant, joy transforms into worry and fear for your child. Now, imagine how alone you would feel when you discover that there’s no support for you.
Unfortunately, this is the reality for so many parents and children. Each year, more than 10,000 babies are born with Cerebral Palsy (CP) – a movement disability caused by damage to the developing brain during pregnancy or shortly after birth. The symptoms of CP can range from issues with posture and walking to seizures, problems swallowing, and mental impairments. Up until now, Cerebral Palsy has been treated as a permanent, life-long condition, with little ability for improvement.
Baby Lavin suffers from all these impairments.
Here’s the Cerebral Palsy Future:
Research shows that adult stroke victims can recover from brain injuries, so why not children who have experienced brain injuries, too? We believe that with early intervention and a whole-body approach to healing, children can achieve great improvements in their quality of life and long-term function.
Why are we are on a mission to create a continued programme of care and therapy for Baby Lavin?
We believe it’s essential to not only address the physical development needs of Baby Lavin, but also to provide a support system for the entire family thus allowing the father to return to work, the brothers to start school, the mother to learn the best care for her daughter. AND for Baby Lavin to make her own mark on the world and we can only do it with YOUR help.
Lavins’s life will always require tender loving care, family support and lots of love BUT she also needs some financial help to allow her to live a pain free and healthy life. As refugees from war, her family have lost everything they own, and now due to the round the clock care she and her two young brothers require, their ability to integrate and become part of the community that has welcomed them, has been compromised by this tragic turn of events.
Your donation will help us continue building our programme of care so we can offer this family the financial help and support they desperately need.
Help spread the word!
Please, help us to transform the belief of improved quality of life into a reality. Your donation today means a better future for Baby Lavin living with Cerebral Palsy tomorrow.
