Vera Holostenko, Teacher & Mentor
In Ukraine, Odessa, for 25 years a wonderful organization has been working, created by a beautiful woman Clara Pascal.
Clara Pascal can rightfully be called the mother of several hundred orphans! Clara is a woman with a great name and a big heart, which is not indifferent to the destinies of disadvantaged orphans. She was able to help the orphans, and with great love and care delved into the needs of these children with word and deed, gave the children a chance to get on their feet, who were leaving in the orphanages.
Clara organized assistance to children in orphanages, shelters, children's hospitals, and anti-tuberculosis sanatorium "Lastochka". One of these children is the orphan Sofia Yukhimchuk.
Sofia entered the children's sanatorium "Lastochka" as a teenager, when her mother became seriously ill and was undergoing long-term treatment, Sofia underwent a health-improving course at the sanatorium.
Sofia blond little girl with blue eyes, who is serious not for her age, as she faced trouble early. After a long illness, her mother died and Sofia was sent to orphanage 1, then to orphanage 7 for children with cerebral palsy. To all these children's institutions, Clara sent monthly help to children.
But to my great happiness, the organization helps students to this day and even expanded its assistance for people who moved to us in Odessa from the Donbass due to the hostilities.
Thanks to the organization, we could afford training, full-fledged medical care and even a dentist. The organization still has a full-time doctor who can be contacted when problems arise or simply questions about health. I have a real example of how UAC supports, when I was a student, one of our students needed long-term treatment.
When Sofia was in adolescence, scoliosis began to develop, as a result of which a curvature of the spine was obtained, an operation was needed. From the time Sofia entered the sanatorium, the UAC organization provided assistance to Sofia, and took part in her life.
When Sofia was assigned an operation in Kyiv National Children's Specialized Hospital "Okhmatdyt", Clara allocated money for medicines and food, sent an employee of the organization, which looked after Sofia before and after the operation. Thank God the operation was successful. Sofia remembers with gratitude all the care for her.
Sofia studied well in the orphanage, and differed from all the children not only in her appearance since she was surrounded by children with cerebral palsy, but also in good behavior and academic success.
Sofia became an example for children, especially orphans, she was for them like an older sister, sometimes helping them in their studies and bringing them up.
After graduating from the orphanage, Sofia entered the college at the faculty of accounting and at the college received a complete secondary education, which gave her the right to enter the University for the Faculty of Speech Therapy.
Sofia is a responsible, grateful, hardworking, friendly student who always went to orphanage 7 for practice, and was appointed the head of the group of students. Children in orphanage 7 are always happy to see Sofia.
Sofia finished the 4th year, and is practicing in a kindergarten as a speech therapist. Thanks to the help and support of the UAC organization, Sofia was able to study, receive medical treatment, as well as moral and comprehensive help.
Thanks to Clara for being able, with God's help, to organize support for orphans, to give them all that is needed, to give them a start in life, to live on their own.
