Project No.: 2018 – MVA – 001
Călin laughs a lot and often uses jokes to make friends. He does not speak very clearly but repeats his words with patience as many times as needed. He learned to do things on his own and rarely asks for assistance. He prepares his own food, cleans his room and carefully dusts the numberless Scooby Doos in his collection. “I like playing football with the boys. I would like to have a job.`”
Călin, 18, is one of the young adults with disabilities in Motivation`s care.
In 2003 the organization initiated the IMPACT program and transferred 37 children with medium and severe disabilities from state institutions. Today, 27 of them are young adults and still live at Motivation, in family-like homes. The others were reintegrated into foster families or their biological families.
“We give our youth the protection and warmth of a family, as well as access to therapies which help them to discover and improve their social skills, and their independent living skills. Together, we work in the occupational workshop, the physiotherapy room, or the sensory stimulation room, we learn to name colors, we play or practice sports.”
Help us to help Călin and Foundation Motivation with their mission. With your donation you make it possible to cover a whole year of medical costs for the complex health conditions of the young adults (which have medium and severe disabilities as well as associated chronic health conditions).
