Social programme that assists children and families in crisis and is aimed at prevention of social orphanhood

Why families in crisis need help:

  • A crisis has occurred and a family is unable to resolve it independently
  • A child is at risk of losing parental care
  • Parents do not have the ability to ensure that a child’s basic living needs are met

A stay at a children’s home has destructive effects on child’s physical and psychological development.

According to the data of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, 56% of children in children’s homes have physical development impairments and 82% have psychological development impairments
