We are so excited to share with you the success story of Veronica Beznos, a Moldovan child, who's life has been transformed by your generosity.
Last year a group of MTI volunteers visited children and families in the poverty stricken village of Oxentea, Moldova. Their goal was to assist in the provision of sustainable infrastructure for community health and therapeutic training for the disabled through MTI’s Community Health Evangelism project.
While in Oxentea, the team checked in on the Beznos family, recipients of MTI’s services thanks to donors like you. Mrs. Beznos - a mother of five - has struggled to properly support her family since the untimely and tragic death of her husband. To further complicate the situation, the youngest Beznos daughter, 6-year-old Veronica, had been in a tragic accident, rendering her physically disfigured and causing multiple brain injuries which severely affected her speech, hearing and mobility. Appropriate and timely medical care following the accident had not been possible due to limited financial resources within her family unit.
In 2010, when MTI first met the Beznos family, Veronica was completely isolated and emotionally withdrawn. The accident had left her unable to communicate with peers or attend school.
Since then, MTI volunteers Dr. Darii and Mariana Socinschi have been working with Veronica to slowly rehabilitate her emotional status and physical health. In 2011, MTI brought Veronica to the capital city where she was able to undergo reconstructive surgery on a severely disfigured leg. This procedure provided Veronica the mobility she needed to attend a center for disabled children within her community.
Your generous donations have provided Veronica the opportunity to reengage with society. Thank you!! Story by Krystal Foote
