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.

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


Since 2018, the Fund's specialists have been working with disturbed families in the Smolensk region under the program of individual comprehensive support "Stick together": they have helped families overcome life crisis, reach sustainable and stable conditions of living so that they can raise their children autonomously.
