* JUNE 2017
(temporary translation with Google Translate)

Valeriya is still waiting for the invitation from the Moscow hospital for the operation, which was originally scheduled for May 2017. We will keep you posted as soon as the new date is known.

* APRIL 2017
(temporary translation with Google Translate)

It does not or does not get the world news, but in Donetsk (where Valeriya and her parents live), bombs are often dropped, sometimes with civilian victims. This city, which was very prosperous and economically active until the war, is still suffering enormously by the military conflict that has emerged in Ukraine unexpectedly in 2015.

This situation is also felt for the treatment of Valeriya. It is very difficult to get the necessary medication, many doctors fled the city and have not returned and hospitals have to row with the few belts they currently have more. Life in the city has also become significantly more expensive.

Thanks to our action, it was happily possible for Valeriya's mother to go to Moscow with Valeriya for a second opinion (another hospital, other doctor) about a possible new back surgery. Unfortunately, the verdict was again disappointing for Valeriya and her mother: a new operation is advised because this operation is considered to be too risky. It means that all salvation must now be expected from an intensive rehabilitation program. In the first days after her return from Moscow, Valeriya has been harder than ever before, according to her mother. And that's good news again (that's why she does not give up the courage)
In the hospital in Moscow, the urinary tract problem was again investigated. This requires an urgent operation and is scheduled for late April 2017. But this news also has a bright spot, but it is good hope that this operation will not only solve the acute aspect of the problem, but will also permanently improve this problem. .

That surgery and medical aftercare and testing, at the end of April 2017, will cost 93,000 rubles (1550 €) and will be paid with the funds gathered by the Walk-Walk action. The same applies to travel and subsistence expenses for the transfer of Donetsk to Moscow (estimated at 250 €).

At the beginning of May, we will keep you informed of the outcome of the operation.
On behalf of www.walk-walk.com and Valeriya and her parents, thanks again to anyone who has supported or supported the action so far. Without your help, Valeriya did not stand as far as she is today, in her attempt to realize her dream: learning and living independently.

on 13/06/2015   449,40 euro has become available of the family  to help covering the medical costs of the
                        operations in St. Petersburg and the next operation in Moscow. The transport cost to Sint
                        Petersburg for the most recent operation has been paid by a local humanitarian organisation in
                        Donetsk.

on 01/11/2014    One year ago DONETSK was a peaceful town, in a peaceful living together country. Since the
                         rebellions and the change of power in Kiev goes for the people in the East from bad to worse. In     
                         Donetsk, there is almost every day of war, and the city and the local economy further shot to
                         pieces, people lose their jobs, are social benefits (family allowances, pensions, ...) hardly paid. All
                         this creates immeasurable human suffering. Besides hundreds of thousands of others, so also for
                         the parents and the family of Valeriya. Currently, it is impossible for them to go to Moscow for the
                         necessary investigations. The proceeds of the action t.v.v. Valeriya is available to do that, once the
                        war stops in the region. Following amounts have been made available for Valeriya's operations
                        and rehabilitation this year: 600 euros on 30/01/2014,  1150 euro on 04/04/2014, and 804.66 euros on
                        01/11/2014.


on 04/04/2014    next 1.150  euro have been handed to Valeriya's parents
                          (for hospital bills, medicaments, orthopedic shoes, travel expenses to St.-Petersburg and
                          Kursk, revalidation and massage,...)

on 30/01/2014  :   first 600 euro has been handed to  Valeriya's parents.
                           this will be used for the medical evaluation of Valeriya's operation in St.-Petersburg
                           as from February 3rd 2014 (detail : see below)
                          + to help cover a part of the costs of the operation in December

JULY 2013
Valeriya's parents have paid for the medical examination which she had in Saint Petersburg, Russia

DECEMBER 2013
Between December 13th and 29th 2013, Valeriya and her parents were in Saint Petersburg, for the operation of both feet of Valeriya. Fortunately the operation has gone well.

The surgery has been done in the FEDERAL STATE INSTITUTION “Pediatric Orthopedic Research Institute named after G.I. Turner of Ministry of Healthcare and Social Development of the Russian Federation” (196603, Pushkin town,Outpatient Department: 64-68 Parkovaya Str.,  tel. 79 318-54-54, fax +79 451-57-61).

Her parents have put all their life's savings to make financially possible, this operation of Valeriya's feet, but these operations in Russia are so expensive that even their lifelong savings are not enough to pay everything...


with our help we can gather the necessary funds for all Valeriya's operations, revalidation and all medical accessories she will need.. Finally she will also need an opeation in Moscow to solve a problem with the bladder, caused by the medical history of Valeriya (in medical terms: hydrocephalus). After the necessary checks in Moscow Valeriya will have an operation of the hydrocephalus.

Valeriya's parents are very hard working people, with average Ukrainian wage, so they can’t afford to pay for everything themselves. They are not residents of Russia and costs for operations, tickets and other expenses for them as her parents to stay in Russia and support their child are high.
