Second “Mother-Baby” department completed!
The second “Mother-Baby” project at NBH has been completed successfully! Director Olga Ivanovna and her staff are very happy. Mothers with their newborn are using the new facility already!
It makes a lot more sense to teach mothers how to care for their newborn, rather than let the newborn be adopted, as was the case mostly.
The first “mother-baby” department has 8 places and the second “mother-baby” department has 4 places. Together there is now space for 12 mothers with their newborn children.
Little drops build huge rivers. If you can, please donate a few dollars and we will be able to extend this project once again!

In April of 2016 director Olga Ivanovna started this project “I will manage everything if my mum is nearby”. It was a risk to start this project because no one knew if mothers with newborn, disabled children would get in contact with NBH and whether this offer was needed. With great commitment and anticipation, the renovation was planned and carried out.
At the end of 2017, this new department was opened and a waiting list had to be created in early 2018!
The mothers are allowed to attend one of these courses in the “mother baby” department for a month at most four times a year. They are trained by professional nurses in dealing with the disability of their child.
It makes much more sense obviously to train the mothers and thus to prevent that there are more and more abandoned toddlers who then have to be adopted somehow and somewhere.
Thanks to this success director Olga Ivanovna has decided to more than double the capacity.
Les Amis de Svieta wants to support Olga Ivanovna.
We look forward to your donation!
Currently, the “mother-baby” department has space for 6 young families. It is planned to expand this capacity by an other 2 places and to build the same kapazity again in the lower floor, to more than double the total capacity.
Such a bathroom is used by 6-8 young families.
Please help with a donation to double the capacity!
Costs for the planned expansion will be US$ 25,000 (CHF 25,000 oder € 22,000).
