This isn't just about an apartment; it's a chance for Věra to keep living her normal life, pursuing her studies with unwavering determination. Together, we're weaving a story of hope, resilience, and a future filled with possibilities. 🌟

Mohi, navigating through life's complexities, could use the support of those around him to conquer it all. Together, let's be the pillars that help Mohi build a bridge to his dreams. 💫

In the face of financial strain, the family is grappling with basic needs, and Alex's mom is struggling to make ends meet. Their situation is undoubtedly difficult.

Kamilka, a shining 9-year-old, carries a unique constellation of challenges: she can't hear, speak, or use sign language. Her journey involves a blend of conditions—KBG syndrome, Rett-like syndrome, bipolar disorder, autism, mental retardation, and more. This year, Kamilka stepped into the second grade of a special school for the deaf. However, it became apparent that her complex combination of challenges made this school less suitable for her.

Mom worked her magic and found Kamilka a new school where she started in September, surrounded by a team that includes her very own personal guide. To support Kamilka's education, the family had to relocate. Mom, a superhero in her own right, is raising three more little ones—Jan, the eldest and mentally challenged, and the adorable twins, Štefa and Šíma. Dad is absent, showing no interest or contribution to the family.

Despite teetering on the edge of poverty, Mom is determined to provide all her children with the best care and love. This Christmas, let's be the guiding stars that illuminate Kamilka's journey and bring warmth to her family's home. 🌟🎄

After a two-year methadone rehabilitation, unfortunately, she decided to end the treatment and return to the clutches of addiction.

Unfortunately, their mom, grappling with a history of substance abuse, walked away from the family. After successfully completing a two-year rehabilitation, she regrettably relapsed into the clutches of addiction.

She cherishes any help she receives and finds solace in the emotional support of those around her. Simona actively gives back by volunteering in the Charity organization and assisting with food bank distribution. She's not just a volunteer but also a recipient.
