“I will manage everything if my mum is nearby” at NBH is an unprecedented project. Until now, we had no experience with hosting adults at NBH (mothers in this case). That’s why we now face a challange we couldn’t foresee, also the project is already “ongoing”. Bathroom reconstruction is the problem. Bathrooms were just big enough for children. Now the same bathroom will be used by both the mother and her child. For example now we need to install a shower cabin and a sink for the mother, which leaves no more space for the changing table and baby bathtub.
That’s why we came up with the following idea: bathtub and changing table kombi.

Updated news regarding “medicaments for NBH” project here!
The Ukrainian government pays 0.08 euros for medications per child per day. For 200 children, the budget per month is 500 euros, which is not nearly enough. Medications have become 5x more expensive since the crisis began 3 years ago, yet budget remained the same!

There is nothing more important in life of any child than mother.
We are proud to announce the launch of a new and unprecedented project at NBH designed for mums with a handicapped child.
Lack of clothes and especially shoes for children have always been a problem for all Ukrainian orphanages. If we are talking about boarding school for children between 5 and 18, plus economical situation when all the prices in Ukraine have exploded, you can say without any hesitation this is one of the biggest problem nowadays.
That’s why when ZuBS applied to Les Amis de Svieta with the request to help them to buy shoes for children, we knew right away we had to help somehow. Luckily enough we had an opportunity to get 50 pair of shoes at a very good price , which were paid by our friend and sponsor Hanni.
Thank you Hanni for your kindness, generosity, care and participation. Your contribution constantly has been helping Ukrainian children all these years!

Almost six months have passed since the launching of the new art therapy rehabilitation program. It has become the most favorite occupation for all children at NBH. The project has overcome all, even the most optimistic prognoses and expectations. Children just love it. And the results are also incredible: the most “difficult” and closed children reveal their inner world, gain trust toward grown-ups.
Updated news regarding Yaroslav here!
Last week, March 17th, we made a trip to Kiev with two children from NBH to Kiev Cardio Center (KCC).
That was neither the first trip to Kiev for Yaroslav nor for Artem. Especially for Yaroslav it was a very important trip.
