Today we visited a unique family in Ukraine, which deserves much more support than it is receiving now.
Vitaliy and Natalya Bardysh once lived in psychoneurological boarding schools in the Zaporizhzhia region. People usually live in such places all their lives. But Vitaly always dreamed of escaping from there. In 2015, he left Lyubitsky PNI and started an independent life.
A year later, thanks to the efforts of Vitaly and volunteers from the church from Mykhailivskyi PNI Natalia "resigned". Vitaly and Natalya soon got married. And 3.5 years ago, they had a daughter, Anya.
Vitaly is a very hardworking person, and thanks to his savings, he bought a house in the village of Shcherbynivka, Cherkasy region. Little by little, volunteers and one of the charitable foundations are helping to furnish the house, and Vitaly himself is saving money for decoration. But these funds are not enough.
I would like to add: this family needs special attention and help, considering the child and the disability of both parents. This is a risk zone, but at the same time an opportunity to create a unique precedent, showing the possibility of people with this type of disability to create families and even raise children.
We are sure that the next time we visit Vitaliy's family, we will be able not only to help financially, but also to offer some kind of solution for the social support of the family.
