Last Fall a little boy was able to receive a life changing operation due to an outpouring of donations received through Gugliemo’s wonderful Ukrainian team, IsidaBridge.
Once we learned of Dimas serious medical condition, fundraising efforts began and we are deeply thankful to everyone for their support. Because of your generosity and compassion, over $2500 was raised and Dima underwent surgery on November 16, 2017.
Dima had an urgent reconstructive operation on his left kidney and we have received the wonderful news that following a lengthy surgery, he is doing well. After 3 days he was running around, smiling and playing with new toys. Words of “thank you!” wouldn’t stop from the orphanage director and hospital staff.
“Thank you to all the people who donated, shared and prayed, we been able to cover costs of all associated fees and to buy toys for Dima, to make his hospital stay as easy as possible. Also doctors performed all the tests and labs on Dima's twin brother. He has the exactly same problem as Dima, but it's not inflammatory and does not cause any issues or problems yet. Doctors placed him on special medical plan to prevent inflammation. Doctors hope Dima's brother may compensate with right treatment, although do not exclude possibility of future surgery.”
We want to say thank you for coming to the aid of this precious little boy. Your prayers, support and donations have changed this child’s life.
We are so thankful for each of you, our Gugliemo’s Hope family!
With great excitement, we can now say Dima is healthy enough to travel and is on our summer hosting list along with his 5 siblings! Be sure to check the photo listing to learn more about hosting these children.
Maybe your family would love to give Dima a summer full of fun, love and laughter?
