Ukraine is one of the largest countries in Eastern Europe and also one of the poorest, with children often bearing the brunt of chronic poverty. Although the fall of Communism has brought about considerable personal freedom, the Ukrainian economy has suffered immensely. High levels of poverty, unemployment, alcoholism, and the inability to survive contribute to parents being unable to care for their own children leaving thousands abandoned. The children who have special needs are the ones who often perish the most.

Today in Ukraine, there are an estimated 120,000 orphaned children living in orphanages and thousands more living on the streets. In a country where the average standard of living has decreased by eighty percent over the past fifteen years, poverty and sickness are brought on by the inability to provide adequate nutrition and healthcare. Least able to fend for themselves are the special needs children who have been abandoned and orphaned. The ones most in need are the children in special needs institutions. They cannot fend for themselves at all. They not only are starving to death from malnutrition, but are in pain as well from the lack of medicine available to them.

 


There is something we can do. There is Project Tylenol/CIB

Project Tylenol/CIB is a project that will not only provide medicine for these little ones in pain, but it will also provide a supplementary drink that we all take for granted here in the United States, called Carnation Instant Breakfast. CIB provides 2x the protein of an egg, 2x the calcium of yogurt, anti-oxidants, while also providing fiber for a healthy digestive system. This is extremely important for special needs children as many have digestive and other disorders, which leads to stunted growth and weight loss. A note that quite a few of the children not only have Down Syndrome, but also have Cerebral Palsy. Please read the attached article on CP and the importance of nutrition in sustaining life. http://www.essortment.com/articles/nutrition-cerebral-palsy-patients_104229.htm

A condition called Psychogenic Dwarfism (failure to thrive) is present in the majority of these children. Children that have psychogenic dwarfism exhibit signs of failure to thrive. Even though they appear to be receiving adequate nutrition, they do not grow and develop normally compared to other children of their age - http://psychology.wikia.com/wiki/Psychogenic_dwarfism

Providing CIB (Carnation Instant Breakfast) is a way for the caregivers to feed these severely malnourished children. And by combining both nutrition and pain relief, many of the children in special needs orphanages will be spared the 90 second starvation rate.
