This is a programme to put orphans in the family. The target of the programme is to create family type homes with minimum 5 children. We buy comfortable cottages for families, provide them with furniture, appliances and other necessary things for the fully fledged life of orphans, and accompany children. For today 41 family type home are functioning, where 325 orphans are brought up and 201 orphans has already left family type homes as they entered educational institution to get a profession or found job According to the agreement signed between the foster parents and Belarusian Children's Fund, the house is owned by the Fund for 15 years. If the family during this time will remain a family-type home, the house will become their property.
For 12 years the project has accumulated a lot of problems connected with the repair of houses, furniture replacement, supplying with gas and other needs.Exept that such big families quite often need seasonal buying clothes, shoes, school implements and other needs.
You can help orphans, brought up in family type homes by transferring money to the operating account of Belarussian children’s Fund (see link) http://www.bcf.by/en/contacts/account.html.
