Why it is important?
There are over 106,000 children living in residential institutions. Did you know that 92% of the children in boarding schools have parents? If they have parents, then why are they in boarding schools or orphanages? The reasons include their parents’ poverty, various addictions, difficult life circumstances, and more. More than 600,000 children live in families in crisis, and they, in fact, "stand in line" of getting into residential institutions.
Everyone in their community can help and support:
- A mother (father) or a grandmother who raise children on their own.
- A family that found itself in difficult life circumstances.
- A family that took children from an orphanage to foster care.
After all, it is from such families that children most often end up in residential institutions. 30% of the children brought up in such institutions will bring their children there.
These children and families need help every day.
Most of all they are in need of love, support, help in mastering life skills, care and attention.
If you want to help a child, regardless of whether he or she is in an institution, in a family in difficult life circumstances, or in a family raising a child deprived of parental care, do help!
- Support the Mentoring project, or become a Mentor for a child in a residential institution.
- Support a family in difficult life circumstances, or projects of the Foundation in this direction.
- Support a family that has adopted or sheltered children from an orphanage.
Your help may be systematic or one-time, practical, financial or advisory. We also need your prayer support!
Your every step of help is extremely important and needed!
