Prevention of social orphanhood is one of the main goals of our organization. The specialists of the Fund help families in difficult life situations to overcome their life crisis in order to prevent their children from ending up in orphanages. The Charity Fund Our Children ('Deti nashi') works with the beneficiary families within the comprehensive systemic assistance program "Stick Together". Now the program is being implemented in the Smolensk region in Russia.
Currently, about 40 thousand orphans are being brought up in orphanages in Russia. However, 80% of them have parents - such children are called social orphans. Living in an orphanage is not conducive to their future well-being. The problem of social orphanhood can be solved if a family in a difficult life situation gets timely and professional help. Now 76 families who have Found themselves in a difficult life situation, and 177 children are under the care of the Found and need professional help
