On February 24, the lives of millions of Ukrainian children and families turned upside down forever. Some were forced to hide in bunkers, basements and subway stations, while others fled to neighboring countries, leaving their brothers, fathers and grandfathers behind. We know that nothing can bring back lost lives and shattered dreams, but we believe that together we can help children and families in Ukraine.
We are launching a campaign to support children placed with foster families and families of relatives who are currently still in Ukraine and cannot escape the war. With your support and the leadership of the Partnership for Every Child Ukraine, we will be able to provide them with food and clean water, humanitarian support, social and health care.
♥ We will send immediate financial assistance to P4EC Ukraine‘s team working at the front in order to ensure the care and safety of children and families (foster parents and relatives).
♥ We will provide food, medicine, clean water, sanitary materials and other necessary consumables.
♥ We will assist in the communication between social and humanitarian workers and families with young children by providing them with phones and tablets with prepaid internet access.
Support for Ukrainian women and children
For Our Children Foundation has created a program to support Ukrainian families with children in our country – “Mission Ukraine in Bulgaria”. The organization helps families in need in the two cities in which it works – Sofia and Plovdiv, by accepting children and parents in the Complexes for Early Childhood Development. The capacity of the program is 100 Ukrainian families with babies and young children up to 7 years, as well as children with disabilities up to 10 years.
The Mission Ukraine to Bulgaria program includes:
A specialized team trained to work with refugees, which includes a coordinator, social workers and translators. The team prepares an initial assessment of support needs for families who have applied for assistance and offers assistance.
Types of support:
♥ support for orientation in the institutions and advocacy before them for access to health and educational services for children;
♥ material and humanitarian support according to the needs of the family and the children in it;
♥ emotional and psychological support;
♥ for children with developmental disorders offers forms for their development, rehabilitation or part-time care.
♥ Organizing group forms of support. In them, through the language of games, art and conversations, the feeling of normalcy in the everyday life of families seeking protection is restored.

A regional alliance of organisations from Bulgaria (For Our Children Foundation), Moldova (Partnership for Every Child Moldova), Georgia and Ukraine (Partnership for Every Child Ukraine), sharing the common history as being part of the former Every Child, unites in support of children of Ukraine, through the Partnership for Every Child Ukraine. The four organisations signed a support agreement, which ensures the good management of the program and transparency of financial spendings.
For Our Children Foundation is the coordinator of the campaign.
Amanda Griffith, CEO of Family for Every Child, said:
“Children on the move are highly vulnerable to grave infringements upon their human rights. This can include loss of adult care, a lack of shelter or medical attention, and disruption or loss of access to education. The effects of these can last a lifetime, and as a result, a peaceful resolution is vital. Around 100,000 children are in institutional care in the Ukraine. This is one of the highest populations in the world, and it is crucial that measures are taken to ensure their safety. It is crucial that European countries provide a safe haven to those fleeing the war in Ukraine, in a comprehensive scheme which welcomes refugees who need sanctuary.”
