in a childrens home a child might go down the line. All sorts of children are brought there. Its better to live in a family. Life wont be good in a shelter

From Our Beneficiaries

Elena, 40 years old, has been living in the Yekaterinburg Department for Vulnerable Mothers with her little son Zhora of 24 months old since September 2009:

What help are you given when living in the Department?

The Department helps a lot. I had no place to go. I had a real problem then whether to take my child with me or to abandon him. God grant that the Department would work for a long time ahead. Sometimes it may happen that your relatives will not be able to take you in or you will not be able to stay with them
  

Oxana, 33 years old, was living in the Yekaterinburg Department for Vulnerable Mothers with her little daughter Lera of 6 months old and Danil of 8 years old from September 2009 till March 2010:

What help were you given when living in the Department?

We had the roof over our heads. I also thank the organization for an economical help. I dont know what I would do if there were no such a Department. I thank the people of this city, of the whole world who help those who face such difficult situations as mine.

Karolina, 24 years old, was living in the Department with her 3 children Bogdan of 3 months old, Danil of 4 years old, Natasha of 5 years old from September 2009 till March 2010:

What might have happened if you hadnt received that support?

I cant say Really. I dont even want to think about it. I might have lost my elder children and could not have taken with me my youngest one from the maternity home. I had nobody to stay with.

Can you give a piece of advice to those who are in trouble now?

To have faith in yourself and hope for the best. Youll make it. We get into such situations because of our own mistakes and because we themselves were not able to protect our own and our childrens rights in due time.
