At the end of September, the staff of Diema’s Dream Fund together with the head of the department of pediatric orthopedics of the FGBU of Moscow, Konstantin Eduardovich Pozharischensky, made another planned visit to the Elatomsky orphanage for mentally retarded children.
Within the “Verticalization” project, implemented by Diema’s Dream Fund, together with the administration of the orphanage, the doctor checked the children, and noted the significant progress in the condition and skills of many of them. He also gave recommendations about the continuation of rehabilitation.
So, Andrey Anisimov grew up and became stronger, but his ortheses became too small for him, so the doctor made casts and promised to make new ones, according to his current cize. Andrey likes to walk very much, so he needs ortheses. Without them, his condition may worsen.
Valya Isupov showed remarkable results, he stands well with the special support, and the equipment selected earlier for him, is perfectly coping with its function. The doctor advised him to continue his therapy and take prescribed medications.
The star of the project is Kolesnikov Roma. Since 2012, when the boy was firstly involved into the project, he has been showing significant progress. Now Roma moves independently with the walkers, also he is very smart. Well done!
Tanya Savinkova was hospitalized in March 2017. Since then she has been showing good results, she is gaining weight, growing up and confidently standing with the special support. High orthopedic footwear was recommended to Polina Chernova by Konstantin Eduardovich. Apart from this everything is okay and no operation is needed.
We are very grateful to the wonderful doctor Pozharischensky K. for his willingness to come back to Elatma again and again and for his invaluable efforts to verticalize children with serious developmental disabilities. Our foundation expresses our sincere gratitude to the administration of the Elatom orphanage for openness to cooperation and new initiatives to improve the state of children with disabilities.
