Agatka Warsińska – Blind, Cerebral Palsy, Haemolytic Anaemia

Agatka Warsińska, from Chojnice, was born prematurely on 1st Sept 2000 – on 6th month of pregnancy. Her life was saved but too much oxygen in an incubator caused the retinal detachment. Unfortunately, the operation which should have been undergone before her 5th month of age was done when she was 14 months old. The doctors’ negligence made the girl blind. She can only see light. What is more, the girl has spastic paraplegia (with no mental retardation). She moves with the help of a wheelchair. Doctors say there is a chance for her to walk on her own to a certain extent.

Agatka is learning Braille, she is cheerful and can sing beautifully. To be able to walk she needs have her legs rehabilitated. Unfortunately, two-week rehabilitation costs 3,700 zl (ca. 881 Euro), and the girl should undergo such rehabilitation 4 times a year. Agatka´s mother can´t afford that. She is a lone mother of two children as Agatka has a twin sister. During the last ophthalmological examination it was found that Agatka´s sister can hardly see with one eye, and the other one is weak. The girls´ father left their mother just after the childbirth because he couldn´t accept her daughter´s disability. The third, another daughter and a granddaughter live with the mother, and other two daughters have their own families and live on their own. The flat where Agatka lives with her mother and her sister is small with no bathroom and the toilet is outside the flat, in a corridor. The family live on maternity benefit for sick and disabled children provided by MOPS (a kind of local community help centre) in Chojnice, and are paid maintenance by the girls´ father. The mother can´t look for a job because she must dedicate her time to taking care of Agatka 24 hours a day.

The girl has already gone through hell in her short life. If she doesn´t undergo rehabilitation and learn to walk, later on she will have to live even tougher life. Blind Agatka awaits your help.
