#USCALA1 - Max and Natasha (2 parents, 1 disabled kid)

We met Natasha and Max's family in early April, when they came to the US via Mexico. This family had a particularly difficult decision to make and a long way to safety. They had problems with their documents, but the biggest problem was how to transport their son, because he needs special care. Natasha and Max have a son.  Timur is a very handsome boy with a serious diagnosis - cerebral palsy.

You can help this family with their basic needs and rehabilitation for their son.
