Our projects
The birth of a child with Down syndrome often comes as a big surprise to parents. What to do? How to live on? Who is to blame? These and other questions arise in almost every family with the birth of a "special baby." It happens that, being in great confusion and shock, the parents leave the baby in the hospital, abandon him. We want to help such families and make the right decision. To do this, our foundation provides crisis psychological assistance to parents of newborns with Down syndrome, provides special literature informing about the peculiarities of upbringing, child development, contacts of currently existing centers for correctional and pedagogical support for children, benefits and benefits relying on legislation, search for narrow-profile specialists, etc. On the basis of the correctional center, we conduct consultations for parents with the whole of Kazakhstan.
