Help the children: a list of Kiev orphanages that need clothes and toys

список киевских детских домов

New Year's holidays have passed, and with it the season of sweets, gifts and surprises. Parents who love their children have done everything possible to make their children happy. But among us there are children who did not have the opportunity to be near their mother, father or grandmother.

Orphans and children with disabilities who live in special institutions also need attention.

We learned what Kiev orphanages need, how to send help and where you can even visit.

What do orphanages need?

The founder of one of the charitable organizations that works with orphanages throughout Ukraine, Bogdan said that each house has different needs. For example, in a boarding school for the youngest children, first of all, it is necessary to insulate the walls and put new windows so that the children are warm. In institutions for children with developmental problems, wheelchairs will never be superfluous.

Also, in orphanages, warm and seasonal clothes are always in short supply, for example, for going to school in the fall, and light sandals, shales - for the warm season.

Many boarding schools ask for help with things for education and art. Sports equipment, microphones, equipment - that does not hurt in every school.

Any help with the products is also welcome.

Do not give dirty things and soft toys to shelters - there are so many of them.

Public policy

In Ukraine, in the framework of social policy, the process of deinstitutionalization has been going on since 2017. It is assumed that children who live in boarding schools, and not in families, will have to live in conditions as close as possible to family ones.

The essence of CI is that the state should formulate such a state policy in order to prevent children from entering boarding schools. In other words, this reform excludes the concept of "shelters for orphans." For this, a whole strategy has been developed to prevent orphanhood from the foundation of a family to the birth of a child.

Because whatever the financial assistance to the orphanages, this cannot solve the main problem - the loneliness of each of the boarding school students.
