It is with deep sadness and with a heavy heart that we share the news of the death of Anya Makovskaya, who died in Minsk this morning, January 18, at the age of 15. Anya was part of CCI’s Minsk Hospice Programme for most of her life, and suffered from cerebral palsy, microcephaly and was blind. Anya died peacefully in her sleep. We offer our deepest condolences to Anya’s family.

Throughout her life, Anya was supported by the CCI hospice team and her loving and dedicated mother, Natalia. During the COVID19 Pandemic, CCI’s team, using PPE, have continued to provide Anya with the support and care she needed. Anya’s health had been declining for the last couple of months, which was extremely difficult for her mother Natalia, whom we will continue to support through our bereavement and counselling services.

Anya, who was born prematurely, was a tiny and smiling girl. She lived in Minsk, Belarus with her mother Natalia, her grandmother, and two brothers. CCI’s Hospice and Community Care Programme helped Anya’s family care for her at home, rather than Anya living in institutional care.

CCI provided a physical therapist to Anya, who made a huge difference to her flexibility and her comfort. The physio trained Anya’s mother in using the proper techniques, and they did the exercises every day. Natalia and Anya didn’t get out very often… they were deeply grateful for all the care and support that the CCI team gave to them.

It is thanks to the generosity and continued support from our donors, that Anya’s short life was filled with dignity and moments of comfort and love as CCI provided her with the care she desperately needed. Anya will find peace with all of our other little angels.

May she Rest in Peace. Покойся с миром.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis. (May her soul rest at God's right hand.)

Having safe and effective #COVID19 vaccines within a year of the first reported cases is a historic scientific achievement. But the work isn’t done.
This accomplishment could be undermined by the failure to get the vaccine to everyone, everywhere.
In fact, hoarding vaccines in wealthier countries will slow down the recovery for every country. It could result in twice as many #COVID19 deaths and could cost the global economy up to $1.2 trillion a year.
