Andrejka has a dream, will we help her fulfil it at Jizerská 50?
Andrejka was born with cerebral palsy and she’s always been on a wheelchair. She’s very independent, but without other people’s help she can’t move around or travel anywhere. That’s one of the reasons we’ve decided to help her together with the participants of the 54th CEZ Jizerska 50 and through the Výbor dobré vůle – Nadace Olgy Havlové.
Health issues mean a lot of obstacles and can bring on bad moods, because at her age Andrejka longs for independence. She attends the Practical School in Jedlička Institute in Liberec, she’s very happy there, she likes to chat with her school mates, but without their assistance she can’t even get from her classroom to the school canteen or another lecture room.
At home the situation is the same. Her parents provide her with all the care and her mum is ready to help 24/7. That’s great for Andrejka, but it also fills her with misery. She’d like to be more independent and not to rely on everything on her mum, who also needs to relax. With an electric wheelchair Andrejka could go outside in the garden where she likes to spend her time or to see her friends from school on her own.
Apart from being able to move freely around the garden, she’d like one specific thing. Her biggest dream is to take her mum for a walk around the village eating ice cream. Her mum is holding two cones and they are talking. They don’t have to sit down to do this, but thanks to an electric wheelchair, they can move.
Would you like to help fulfil Andrejka’s dream? CEZ Jizerska 50 has decided to raise the target sum of 82,400 CZK for the wheelchair through the Výbor dobré vůle – Olga Havel Foundation.
