Thanks to benefactors, little Denis with Vynogradiv received a chance to hear world

Until recently, Denis of the Svoren family living in Fanchykovo in Vynogradiv district had little chance to fully develop. At the age of two years, the boy suddenly began to lose hearing, and if not for the help of benefactors, the child could hardly hear and speak.

At first glance, little Denis is no different from his peers. Just like other kids, he loves using markers to make the world brighter, playing with cars, driving dad's moped. 

In his three and a half years Denis understands almost everything, but he still has not learnt to speak properly. The reason is a sudden loss of hearing that parents began to notice more than a year ago.     The surgery was needed as soon as possible, because the loss of precious time could lead to the complete loss of hearing and mental retardation. 

However, when parents heard how much the implantation of the implant cost, which is 35 000 euros, they were despaired. But fortunately, the world is not without good people, says Ms Ludmila - Denis's mother. In spring the parents appealed to the head of the regional council Ivan Baloha. The woman says that Ivan Baloha immediately responded to the problem. "He helped us, and our son underwent surgery in the Kyiv clinic. Doctors set the implant, and Denis for the first time heard his parents, animals, ambient sounds. Now our little boy goes to kindergarten and fully develops - for us it is true happiness" - says Lyudmila.

After the operation more than three months have passed. Rehabilitation period will take about two years, during which parents will be going to Kyiv to adjust the implant. Due to the timely surgery the child will soon be able to catch up with his peers in intellectual development.
