Kitija

PHOTO DONATION: Andrejs Terentjevs

Inga has three children: Signija (12), Ralfs (7) and Kitija (5). Mom deals with her youngest one’s health problems and daily struggles all on her own. Dad was an alcoholic and now children are refusing to meet or even see him.
This story is about Kitija who needs our help.
Kitija has many different illnesses - she has epilepsy with cramps, kidney failure, hip subluxation and stomach problems. Kitija would love to go to water procedures but due to problems with kidneys its impossible. The food has to be processed too before she can eat it. Mom says, Kitija has all the problems imaginable but in spite of that mom is determined to deal with them all. Its difficult because she’s all alone so the ladies from the local social services asked for help.
Kitija requires lots of hard work. Inga recalls that at first her little girl was laying like a little “pancake” but there’s been a big progress since then - now Kitija takes hold of her toys, sits on her own, claps, laughs at her brother’s jokes. Her mom takes her to therapeutic exercise and massage sessions but the amount of these procedures covered by the state is way too insufficient. Kitija enjoys spending time with other kids so she will go to a social kindergarten in Riga.
Currently the family resides in Iecava but they are planning a move to Riga so that they would live closer to Kitija’s kindergarten and also it would be easier for mom to find a job.
Kitija loves music and enjoys attending different events, however, she still has never been at the zoo or at the theatre...
Currently Inga’s family survives on LVL 400 a month. On one hand its not a small amount but they are a family of 4 and Kitija needs special care, medicine and diapers so in the end the amount turns out to be really small.

We can help!
The things Kitija needs are:
- diapers,
- money for buying medicine because the state does not cover all the expenses,
- Nutrini bottles,
- picture books, toys for babies – musical ones, rattles,
- blender for blending food,
- money for massages and therapeutic exercise,
- mom dreams of rehabilitation abroad or a special feeding chair for Kitija,
- Kitija would very much enjoy a trip to the zoo, puppet theatre or attend some other event.

For now we can help by providing the afore mentioned things and she also needs LVL 500 to buy medicine and diapers and go to therapeutic exercise and massage sessions.

Lets help!

WE STILL NEED: LVL 00,- (from the total of LVL 500,- 31.01.12.*):
