Why many children are denied that right. They suffer from many diseases such
as cerebral paralysis which has crippled my little boy Mitar since his
birth due to doctors’ fault.
Mitar was born on 12th July 1995 in Novi Sad ( Yugoslavia ) a month and a
half before the due date determined by the doctor. His premature birth was
a direct consequence of a botched up examination.
He had 2.520 grams and
was 49cm at the time of birth. He cried like all healthy children. All
would have been in order if he was place in an incubator like all premature babies.
Nevertheless, Mitar, although born after only 7.5 months
of pregnancy, was never placed in an incubator and since then we are

Very often we have to go to rehab institutions for expensive treatments.
All that, God willing, so Mitar can get better. We have great problems
with sourcing prosthetics and expensive medications.

advice may help me in the bitter fight for the health of my little hero!

Mitar’s health by donating whatever little they can afford by sending
