Omsk charity center “Raduga” announced the start of fundraising for the purchase of a hearing aid for young Vanya Chemodanov. The amount that is needed to return the 6-year-old Omsk's hearing is over 167 thousand rubles.
Young Ivan began to hear quite recently. A couple of years ago, doctors performed a hearing restoration operation on the boy, since he had not perceived sounds from birth. The child's relatives hoped that after that he would begin to hear and speak, but everything turned out to be not so simple. “We still don't know how Vanya lost his hearing. Doctors say that he was already born deaf, but in the capital, experts said that he stopped hearing after the first year, ”said the child's mother.
This uncertainty makes it difficult to make accurate predictions about when little Ivan will be able to speak. Rehabilitation specialists believe that the implant was installed too late for the young patient, while the doctors, as one, for several years continued to argue that you just need to wait a little, and the boy will speak himself, simply not knowing the reason why he does not speak.
After the operation, Vanya began to perceive sounds and even try to speak, but so far he is doing it in some of his own, one that only he can understand. “No one but me understands him,” says the boy’s mother. Thanks to the presence of one implant, the child was able to hear, however, the sound he hears remains not three-dimensional. And in order for a future student to learn to hear and understand speech correctly, as well as to speak independently, he needs a powerful hearing aid for his second ear. The only catch is that this technique is very expensive, so representatives of the Rainbow Foundation decided to organize a fundraiser to buy a hearing aid for the boy.
Anyone who wants to help Vanya Chemodanov's family in solving this cherished dream is asked to send an SMS with the word “good man” to the short number 3434, indicating the amount of donation in the message separated by a space.
