We are dedicated to improving the lives of neglected, abandoned and abused children and special needs orphans living in state run institutions.
Our charity is dedicated to helping the very weakest children in Belarussian society but we cannot do this alone. With your help we can make a real difference.
AN URGENT APPEAL
We are appealing for your help to purchase new wheelchairs for special needs children and young adults at Bogushevsk Orphanage.
