You lovely people!

GENEROUS Newham Recorder readers have made the future a lot brighter for this “little angel”.

Solvita Kadzyte’s parents made a heart-rending appeal so they could raise �22,000 to fly their daughter to China for breakthrough stem cell treatment so she can walk and play like any other child.

Thanks to your donations, the family’s fund has increased – from �4,605 to �8,450 in just over a week.

Father Marius told the Recorder: “We are very, very grateful. It has helped so much. This money is only for Solvita, not for us or for anything else. All of the money is for her.”

But four-year-old Solvita still needs your help to raise the money for her treatment in Beijing in March. The family need to raise �20,000 for her to continue her vital treatment.

Solvita was diagnosed by Great Ormond Street Hospital with Cerebellum Hypoplasia, a rare mobility brain condition which means she cannot walk more than a few steps unaided.

Marius added: “Even if it is 50p or 20p it’s going to make a difference.
