Purpose of the project

Dear friends, People’s Project is now changing its own rules a bit: today, we launch a project aimed to help a particular person. We are talking about a young fighter whose name is Vadym Ushakov. He has been suffering from the consequences of a heaviest injury and for the third year in a row undergoing exhausting treatment at special neurological clinic Nodus.

Some time ago this young guy (Vadym is just 28 years old) defended our homeland and served as a machine gun operator in the 90th battalion of the 81 Airmobile Brigade. In April of 2016 there happened a fierce close combat in Promka, an industrial zone near Avdiivka. The enemy attacked our positions, time after time shelling our troops with heavy munitions. Vadym got hit by an enemy grenade: it is no secret that a machine gun operator is an enemy’s primary target, so as soon as he disclosed his position, it was immediately attacked. A VOG grenade hit the guy under his arm, and its explosion cut his body, head and face heavily.

At the hospital to which the guy was immediately taken, it became obvious that the injury was much more complicated than it looked before. The most apparent wounds got healed, still the consequences of brain damage has still been causing lots of troubles. Tetraparesis, aphasia and continuous severe headache are the main manifestations of the trauma Vadym has been suffering from. He cannot speak despite being perfectly conscious. For the guy, it is pretty hard to move: it is not about the paralysis, but Vadym’s arms and legs remain too weak. All these effects are to be overcome by means of continuous training. To get over these, or at least decrease their effects, the guy needs to undergo complex rehabilitation. Luckily, Vadym’s organism reacts to his doctors’ efforts quite appreciatively, so there has been gradual progress in his rehabilitation.

Still, everything is hindered by a difficult and absolutely impenetrable problem that cannot be surmounted so far: it is spastic problems and prolonged muscular contractions that twist the body and cause regular severe pain. This spastics nullifies all the efforts taken by Vadym’s doctors and makes further rehabilitation impossible.

What are we collecting money for

Unfortunately, Vadym’s body does not react to any medications any more, neither to pills or injections of muscle relaxers and painkillers. We have to accumulate money to buy special infusion system Medtronic Synchromed II. Medics will install it for free, still the system itself is rather costly. The device is an automatic pump that is to be surgically implanted into body; it will periodically infuse special medications, muscle relaxers aimed to relieve the muscles, into designated areas. For today, the system will allow to relieve the muscles, ease the spasms and help Vadym to get rid of constant pain.


Moreover, as soon as spastic muscles have been removed, it will become possible to embark on the main course of rehabilitation, that is restorative training, speech therapy and the rest of exercises and methods contributing to restoration of Vadym’s health and helping to bring him to normal life both physically and mentally. All this is essential as the condition of any bedridden patient suffering from muscle spasms, inevitably radically worsens with time.

Vadym’s devoted wife is the person who probably plays the key role in his restoration. It is practically impossible to find a picture in which she wouldn’t accompanied him. And we realize what it really takes. We do understand the power of such loyalty. And we’re sincerely grateful to this brave woman for her never ceasing efforts.

Thus, application of the infusion system seems the only right solution in this case. It is the treatment scheme Vadym’s doctors have been considering for a long time upon consulting with their foreign colleagues as well as specialists from other medical and scientific institutions. Most probably, it is this time-consuming and difficult way that will take much efforts, can help the guy to recover. But it is pain and spastic muscles that present the main obstacle to it, and we are going to get over these by means of the infusion system.

Dear friends, do we really have to explain that every single hryvnia of your donations is a chance for this nice guy? If we fail to accumulate the necessary amount, we will leave him to face his terrible misfortune on his own. He will remain bed-ridden for ages, and will always need special care. So each proper amount of money donated for Vadym’s restoration, would be exceptionally appropriate and welcomed.

You can easily follow every incoming contribution in real time: the link to the project report you can see above, below the main photo. As always, People’s Project never charges any interest rate or commission fee: the entire sum of money raised will be allocated to Vadym’s treatment purposes solely.

Dear friends. Please be so kind to support us. It is truly vital for the guy who needs to survive.
