DO YOU KNOW THAT...?
According to official data the number of children in Ukraine has decreased from 12 million 356 thousand in 1997 to 9 million in 2007…
During the same time the number of orphans and children deprived of parental custody has increased from 80 thousand in 1997 to 103 thousand in 2007.
Therefore, the percentage of all children in Ukraine who are orphans has doubled in the past 10 years.
80% of these children are social orphans who suffer from cruel attitude and violence, and have been abandoned by their parents.
Just think about it: after the age of 5 only 20% of orphan children will be adopted… Most will never have parents…
Orphan children often lack proper nutrition. Their living conditions are often terrible. Children graduate from the orphanage at the age of 18 and often become homeless and isolated.
Shortage of education and knowledge, lack of motivation lead to
unreadiness for independent life. As a result…
10% will commit suicide by the time they are 18 years old.
60% will be involved in prostitution.
70% of young men will be involved in crime.
… and less than 27% will settle into a normal life…
To make the children's lives more interesting the activists
of our society organize
Meetings with interesting people
- Seminars on relationships
- Sports competitions
- Role games
- Various competitions
- Educational programs
- Programs of material aid…
