Humanitarian Foundation BUDI HUMAN - Aleksandar Šapić
raises funds for Ivan Filipčev (2011).
Ivan and his twin brothers Filip and Vanja were prematurely born babies. Vanja lost his life battle, and Philip is a healthy and happy child. As a result of brain bleeding, Ivan was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and hydrocephalus too.
Due to the deformity of the foot, strabismus and the difficulty with eating, little Ivan takes, from the fourth month of his life, constant therapies. Despite all the treatments and therapies at the age of seven he cannot stand and walk independently. However he made great progress in the last two years thanks to various therapies: he can crawl, rise to his knees, and after almost seven years he is able to turn from his back on the stomach and vice versa, to speak relatively well, to walk with the help of a walker. Ivan attends pre-school this year with the help of a personal assistant but next school year 2019/2020, after a year of postponement, he will go to the regular elementary school, and for that reason he will probably need additional help (special chair, assistive technology).
For his further progress and ability to walk and play with his twin brother it is necessary to have daily therapies with physiotherapists, therapies in rehabilitation centers abroad, with accommodation and travelling costs which are all very expensive. Various equipment is also needed, as he grows constantly. It would be great to repeat dolphin therapy in Turkey, after which in 2015 Ivan achieved great mental and verbal progress.
All these therapies are extremely expensive and beyond the financial incomes of Ivan's family, we ask all the good people to help him.
