Vasya, 12, was born with a cleft palette. Born to a family in another country he would had corrective surgery and therapy from a young age, with a loving family to support and help him.

The reality is that Vasya was born, abandoned and condemned to living his entire childhood in an orphanage. The other kids tease and mock him. Kids can be cruel and even his friends sometimes make fun of him.

Children's Medical Missions will provide Vasya with free medical care (doctors and hospital) and a host family.

We need to raise funds for:

* Trip to Kyiv to be interviewed for the visa

* Travel to Dayton, Ohio

Based on previous experience the cost is estimated to be $2,200.
