In Lviv, volunteers organized a romantic date for a disabled couple

Even in the darkest times, you have to believe in true love...

Andrii and Tania, who move around in wheelchairs and live in specialized institutions, waited to meet again (read their love story below).

Today, on Valentine's Day, representatives of the NGO and CF «Rozvytok Hromady» with the help of friends and partners, organized in Lviv a real romantic date for a couple in love.

First, they had a ride on horses, admired the underwater world in the Oceanarium, exchanged creative and soulful gifts and ended the evening in a restaurant, where a saxophonist played romantic melodies only for them.

Emotions overwhelmed everyone... We will try to continue our efforts so that the lovers have the opportunity to see each other and dream about the future.

Background: back in 2018, during regular volunteer assistance to pupils of the Bukivskyi boarding school (Staryi Sambir Raion), we learned about this incredible story. She is Tania, a girl in a wheelchair from the only boarding school for women in the Lviv region, and he is Andriyko, a boy in a wheelchair from the Rozdilskyi boarding school for men. It would seem that they are separated by kilometers and various specialized institutions. Once, fate brought a couple of lovers together at a concert of the famous singer Oksana Mukha, where they were invited by the organizers to. Since then, Tania and Andrii only corresponded, because they did not have the opportunity to meet again. Back then, we decided to correct this injustice and organized an unexpected romantic meeting for lovers in wheelchairs. How it was in 2018 - watch the video at this link.

Since that time, whenever possible, we try to make a pleasant meeting for Andrii and Tania.

Many thanks to everyone who joined and helped.
