Summary

Two years on, the war continues to destroy Ukraine, affecting millions of people. There are about 650 residential institutions nationwide housing approximately 100,000 children. Many of these children are affected by physical and learning disabilities. Many have no parents or guardians. Many will be unable to flee invasion and find refuge as the war advances. These vulnerable children living in specialized institutions must not be the forgotten victims of this war.

Challenge

We help orphanages cover their essential needs as state funding shrinks. In wartime, these facilities suffer even more. Institutionalized disabled children are highly vulnerable and often treated as an afterthought due to underfinancing. The situation has worsened as the war progresses and state funding priorities change. Orphanages cannot create adequate conditions for living and studying for their students; children don't get proper nutrition and have to live in poor conditions.

Solution

We help supply orphanages with diapers, hygiene and cleaning products, and stationery. We equip classrooms and buy mobility aids and nutritious food. BKC also assists with building and yard renovations to make them safe. Each orphanage has different needs. We answer those specific needs. As the war in Ukraine continues, we need to ensure that children residing in orphanages have the necessities and proper conditions to live and study. We aim to show these children that their lives matter.

Long-Term Impact

Even if the invasion of Ukraine ended today, it will leave thousands of children orphaned. These children will rely on orphanages for survival. As a result, the need for proper functioning and equipped specialized institutions is urgent. By helping Bright Kids Charity provide the necessities for orphanages, you are sharing the message that these children matter, that their lives matter and that they have a chance for a brighter future. A caring environment and an education can change a life.
