Alex Donea is an amazing 24 year old who lives in the remote village of Bistra in Romania. When Alex was 6 years old he lost his hearing completely. Throughout his life he managed to make the best of it and live with the horrible fact of being deaf. He managed to shine through it all and last year finished his degree in IT at the University of Alba Iulia in Romania. Even though he cannot hear at all, he finished with the 3rd highest scores out of everyone in his year.
Now Alex will continue with his Masters Degree.
For Alex, being able to study is a massive privilege and its made him feel that he has a future.
The only way that Alex can have a normal life and get his hearing back is by getting Cochlear Implants which is a medical implanted device which will do the work of the damaged part of his inner ear and provide sound signals to the brain. This is an extremely expensive procedure and in Romania there is no way to get funds from the government to help. Alex's family would never be able to afford this and all they want for their son is to have a normal life and be able to get a job and make use of the studies that he worked so hard for.
We want to help Alex get his hearing back. Every little donation would mean the world to him and his family!! Please help and spread the word. This would change the life of an amazing young man!!
