Children's Home I in Skolobiv
The small village Skolobiw is located in the Schytomyr region, about 120 miles outside of the national capital Kiev. In this village there lives a couple that had the dream to have a big family. Their hearts always were open towards children.
„Who at least once has visited a public orphanage, and has seen the orphans there, will be changed forever. When I first were in on, I came out a different person,“ the foster-mom said.
In the year 2011they accepted 3 orphans into their family. They loved to take in more children, but they did not have enough living space.
The couple searched for 4 years to resolve the problem. All attempts remained fruitless, until they one day heard about the Foundation and were able to explain their situation to us.
It is not easy to be a foster parent, but to see the happy faces of the children gave them courage. They know that their efforts are not in vain.
On September 28, 2018, the opening of the first Children’s Home was celebrated. Now up to 12 children can find love and affection here. What a joy for the family. They are now able to celebrate their first Christmas not only with more children, but also in a new family environment.
