For 2.5 months, the child received treatment at the place of residence, and then, in a vegetative state, with severe suppurative complications of the brain,  in a state of extreme exhaustion and with bedsores, was transferred to the Institute of Emergency Children's Surgery and Traumatology.

With the treatment , purulent complications of the brain were eliminated, the basal metabolic rate was normalized, was  picked a full feeding. He gained weight, pressure sores were cleared and then, excised surgically. After finishing  all the possible terms of  child’s  treating with  CHI,  the Foundation appealed to the Council of Muftis of Russia with a request to assist in the payment of further surgical treatment and rehabilitation of the child under the Research Institute of Emergency Children's Surgery and Traumatology.
