When 15-year-old Nikita arrived into Shannon Airport last Tuesday, it was evident to his loving host family, Sheelagh and Richard Hogan, that his care needs had increased and his independent mobility was laboured in comparison to last Summer.
In order to give him the most comfortable time in Ireland, the Hogan’s made contact with MMS Medical for the temporary loan of a wheelchair. However, upon meeting Nikita and hearing how he was abandoned at birth to live in an orphanage, MD of MMS, Gearoid O Herlihy, gifted the wheelchair to Nikita to bring home with him to Belarus!
As you can see, Nikita is delighted with his new comfortable chair which means he can enjoy his time in Ireland even moreso!
This incredible gesture of humanity and generosity will make an incredible difference to the life of Nikita and we cannot thank Gearoid and MMS enough!
Go raibh mile maith agat!
