Luiz Gustavo meu filho tem 8 anos. Ele só ouve de um lado com ajuda de um aparelho.Semana passada fizemos um vídeo quando ele recebeu o aparelho de volta do conserto, que ficou em mais de 7 mil. O vídeo era somente para mostrar a reação dele para os amigos que contribuiram e isso comoveu muitas pessoas e tivemos mais 8 milhões de visualizações. Então decidi tentar conseguir fundos para que ele possa ouvir do outro ouvido. É muito importante para o desenvolvimento dele. Seremos muito gratos a todos que no ajudarem.
Nosso muito OBRIGADO.
When our nine-year-old son Luiz Gustavo da Silva’s hearing aid stopped working in March this year, he was left facing weeks of uncertainty because we couldn’t afford the repair bill of £1,630 / $2,260. Our wonderful son was devastated by the sudden silence and cried repeatedly as he sorely missed his love of conversation, music and interacting at school. Luiz Gustavo’s plight touched the hearts of scores of residents in our home town, Bueno Brandão in south east Brazil, which has a population of around 11,000. Hundreds rallied to his cause when a friend suggested holding a raffle with an ox, worth around £220 / $300 donated by our family as the top prize. Within 15 days we had raised more than enough to fix the device. Now we are trying to raise funds to pay for bilateral surgery to deliver hearing to his right ear as the public health service only pays for one hearing aid to be fitted. The cost for the second device is over £15,000 / $20,800 (70,000 reais). If you’re able to help, we would like to thank you in advance for your kind generosity.
