In March 2022, as a result of the invasion of Russian military, 2 orphanages were evacuated out of Ukraine with millions of other Ukrainian refugees. These 46 orphans, along with 4 caregivers and the caregivers’ children, were then moved to Italy, where they are currently housed as refugees. The orphanage was evacuated quickly, so the children and staff left with just the clothes that they were wearing.
A group of supporters, lead by an attorney in Ukraine, are working to provide the children with supplies to meet their basic needs. Medications and other needed items have already been collected. The children currently need clothes for spring/summer, hygiene items, and other basic necessities.
Thank you for your support!
