Timur is in the family now
Timur is in the family now

Each life of a child is precios and it's great when even one life is changed. 

We're so happy to share with you this story, how little Timur has found Mom and Dad

Life of Timur has started with two rejections. Biological mother and father hasn't accepted him as he was - with specific arms and legs. We've made a videoprofile for Timur and kept telling about him.

And mirracle happened! Tatiana and Andrey have seen Timur. And finally he spent his first New Year at home. His life wouldn't be full of closed specialized institutions any more - without hope and future. Now he's a son, brother and grandson. And also he looks like his father.

This story wouldn't happened if there were not you! Without you Timur would stay invisible - like others girls and boys in orphanages. Without you children and parents couldn't find each other. And we couldn't manage with all, specially in hard 2020. 

With your help in 2020 we've created videoprofiles for 147 children. Our project is on GlobalGiving made it possible to make videoprofiles for 893 children, and 211 boys and girls are in families now. 

Thank you for being close to us, to orphan children! Thank you for supporting and believing that children need better life in families.

We hope to change more lives of children with you this year. 

And all our achievements and victories are yours!

Eva leaves orphanage
Eva leaves orphanage

3-years old Eva going to meet her mommy.

If there was no videoprofile of Eva, girl probably wouldn't have left the orphanage.

Here future foster mother wouldn't see her and wouldn't decide to take her to the family. She wouldn't have got mother, father, sisters and brothers. She would have still got diagnosis "epilepsy" and disabled status, and this would still frighten potential adopters or foster parents.

Now Eva is in family and it's not easy to recognise her. She doesn't have to take strong medicines and she's got no seriouse diagnosis. Eva, so called "child without perspective" from orphanage is going to normal school, and she's got real childhood and happy future.

Thank you for helping Eva as well as others orphan children become daughters and sons.

With your support we've made videoprofiles for 824 kids and 201 of them are in families. 

Thought it's not an easy time for us to make videoprofiles and some orphanages do not let us in because of coronavirus situation, we do our best to help as much children as we can.

And we know than you and many other people share our vision that all children should live in families.

Thank you for being with us and orphan children in hard times!

Children before and after they've found new family
Children before and after they've found new family

Dear friends, 

More than 50 thousand children have got videoprofiles made by our Foundation. These boys and girls are not invisible any more. 

And 763 of them have got a chance for a family within your support on GlobalGiving! 

How videoprofiles helped parents to recognise that the child would be the the one they would call daughter or son? 

Marina: "When I saw the photo of this girl in state database of orphan children, I was just scrolling. But when I've seen her video... I watched it several times a day, couldn't stop - I liked her so much!"

Natalia: "Words they said in videoprofile came right into my heart. Girls need attentive and wise parents. Would we be able to become such a parents? We watched the video again and again. We've remembered how sisters move, how they react, looking attentively, if they have earrings, thinking about the presents we can prepare for them..."

50 thousand children - it's more than there are children in state database by now, acording to oficial statistics. It's more we can imagine. 

50 thousand little lives.

50 thousand chances.

If it was't you, this wouldn't happen!

Varya and Ekaterina
Varya and Ekaterina

In May 2019 Change One Life foundation have made a videoprofile for Varya, orphan child. 

Her story was tragic. Varya's parents died in car crush, and Varya herself had a serious trauma - she could move only in wheel chair. Girl got to orphanage. She had 3 dreams: to find family, get well and visit Paris. They seemed to be pipe dreams.

Ekaterina have seen videoprofile of Varya and felt like she was her own child. It seemed strange to her that Varya lived somewhere else, not in her family.

When Ekaterina have shown the video to her husband they rushed to prepare nessesary documents to become foster parents.

Soon Varya became the part of their family.

So the first dream of Varya came true. Now girl is recovering. 

Thank you for giving chance for a family to children like Varya! 

Thanks to you and your support we have created videoprofiles for 722 children, and 179 of them are now in foster families or adopted. 

Please help us to continue the project and make children wishes come true!

Vitalik: 5 years in family
Vitalik: 5 years in family

"I made up my mind to look for a child via videoprofiles in Change One Life database. They are great in showing what the kid is. - says Anna, who adopted the child. - Just few minutes were enought to decide about the child to take to our family. Someone can think it's wierd  - to choose the kid from the database, like in a shop. This thought worried me at the beginning, but then I realized that I'm not choosing, but looking for my future child. Who would be my destiny. And I just need to recognise him from hundreds of others.

In his videoprofile Vitalik was described as little leader, curiouse and compassionate. It's just like he is. " 

Now 5 years passed since Vitalik has been found by Anna. He became beloved son and loving brother.

In fact, in Russia adopters and forster parents need to search for a child themselves, and the social services are not able to find families for all children who live in orphanages. 

So thousands of children are still left without parents as they were not found by those who can share their love and care.

That's why we continue making short films about all these kids and keep telling about them everywhere we are able to. 

Thanks to your support 680 children are not invisible any more: of all ages - newborn and teenagers, from all over Russia.

Here you can see and hear them too.

And 165 boys and girls are in families now, just like Vitalik. 

Thank you for making this world better for children left without parents care!
