Our contribution to the welfare of the Yarosh family • Medicine for the children • Orthopedic mattress for Pavlyk • Dryers • Desks for school beginners • Mini web-cam and IPod from the lottery • Special Logo for the special family • Contract with an auditing company Medicine for the children V&A helped Zorianka, Pavlyk and Olenka Zoriana to get the medicine needed for their brain stimulation. Zoriana was the first one who started taking it. Now she is more calm, can control her emotions better, and as a result fights less with other kids. Pavlo and Marichka started taking medicine not long time ago. It helps them a lot too. Pavlo Marichka started sleeping better, worries less, cries less, and smiles more often :) Pavlyk can concentrate more on his exercises and remember more things. Marichka Because these 3 kids are taking the medicine, they received a wonderful opportunity to go to the regular school instead of school for the mentally challenged. Though there were many obstacles on the way to receiving this medicine, we finally got it and now Pavlyk, Zorianka and Olenka are saying Thank You For All Your Help! Orthopedic mattress for Pavlyk Pavlyk rarely complains about anything but he loves to say how happy he is. When we just got acquainted with Yarosh Family, we got a special orthopedic mattress for this special kid. Since that time Pavlyk shows the visitors his gift and tells them how comfortable his little bed is now. Come to visit Pavlyk and he’ll show it to you too ;) Dryers When some of the members of V&A came to visit Yarosh family, they had a privilege to visit the room where the Mom of the family used to spend most of her time. That’s not a play room and not even a kitchen, but a laundry room ;) V&A decided to save some of Mom’s time and got 2 dryers for her family. Now Mom can spend more time with her beloved kids knowing that the dryers do part of her work. All the family appreciates this gift and little Sveta as well as other members of the family believes it to be a real miracle (that’s what she is trying to show you at the picture). Desks for school beginners This September was especially productive for the Yarosh Family: Zorianka, Marichka, Olenka, and Pavlyk went to the first grade V&A ordered special long desks and colorful drawers for the school beginners and made sure they have a comfortable place to study their lessons. Pavlyk Marichka Zorianka Olenka First -graders Mini web-cam and IPod from the lottery V&A organized a business seminar and with a lottery to benefit Yarosh Family: all the money received from the lottery were given to the family as well as the prizes' that the winners of the lottery decided to give to the family instead of keeping it to themselves. Yarosh Family just loves the web-cam and the IPod they received. Special Logo for special Yarosh family V&A Designer developed a logo for the Yarosh Family.
