Humanitarian Foundation BUDI HUMAN - Aleksandar Šapić
raises funds for Relja Novaković (2016)
Relja was born on 4 December 2016 in Belgrade. He is the first child in the family, born after a properly maintained and controlled pregnancy.
Development proceeded normally as with other healthy children of that age until the age of one when his mother noticed changes in behavior. There was a regression of speech, so he did not speak the acquired words anymore. Since then, he speaks only in syllables. There is no adequate social contact.
He makes stereotypical movements such as fluttering of the hands. Relja has lost interest in everything, to respond and perform the actions required of him.
A detailed diagnosis determined that Relja has Dg. F83 Disordines evolutionis specifici mixti (disharmonious development) and F84.1 Autismus atypicus (autism).
Relja was immediately involved in special education and speech therapy treatments. There is progress, but not enough. In order to progress Relja needs to continue with frequent physical and other necessary treatments. He also needs funds for stem cell transplantation.
In this way, his mother asks all humane people, who are able, to help them so that Relja can continue with the treatment.
