For the sixth consecutive year, our long-term partners Citibank Bulgaria have chosen to invest in the Foundation’s efforts to ensure the best conditions and support for the development of children deprived of parental care who grow up in foster families.

With the funds donated by Citi, this year we will continue to work to increase the knowledge and skills of families who have taken the responsibility to provide security and parental warmth to nearly 40 foster children. We will provide the necessary therapies and additional support for these children, an opportunity to have fun, develop their talents, and learn like all other kids.

“We are proud of our partnership with For Our Children Foundation and we are glad that since 2015 we have been able to sustainably improve the lives of the most vulnerable children in Bulgaria. The entire Citibank team is committed to the cause and believes that even with small but significant actions together we can contribute to a positive and real change in the lives of foster children”, said Grigoriy Ananiev, Citi Markets Head for Central and Eastern Europe.

We are grateful to Citibank for supporting the launch of our Day Care Center for Children with Disabilities and Developmental difficulties in 2020, which provides daily and hourly care, as well as individual and group developmental and therapeutic sessions to overcome children’s struggles. Our efforts to combat the effects of the coronavirus pandemic that started with Citi last year will continue in 2021, and again with the contribution of donors and supporters, we will help families in difficulty or losing their jobs.

“Nothing can completely eradicate sadness and emptiness in children who cannot live with their mother and father, but foster families are their best chance for a happier and more successful future! It takes a lot of understanding, big hearts, and a strong value system to understand in-depth how important a family environment is for every child. We thank Citi and their team for being with us for 6 years in our mission to give a happy childhood in a family!”, said Mariana Taseva, Deputy Executive Director of For Our Children Foundation.

We are proud that the bank and its employees are part of the family of the For Our Children Foundation and together we manage to make the change every year for over 1000 children at risk and their families.
