In 2010, Dima was working construction and fell down 5 stories, receiving a compound fracture in his right leg.
He went straight into surgery, but the doctor did not clean his leg well.
His leg quickly grew dark and infected, leaving him with no choice but to amputate his leg above the knee joint.
Being poor, he received the cheapest option for a prosthetic leg (a wooden peg) 8 years ago.
Dima lives at the top of a ten story building with no elevators and makes the long walk up and down and to and from work to earn and save enough money to take care of his sweet family.
We are wanting to fund enough money to buy him a "C-leg" which is $47,100. That includes both the leg and the foot attachments and all the necessary funds to get it matched and fitted to him.
If we earn less, we can settle for a cheaper leg. However, we believe that with faith and hard work we will be able to earn enough to help Dima change his life to live more comfortably and happy like he deserves.
We are hopeful to gather the funds as quickly as possible within the next month or two.
