  1. Diapers for Zurupinsk boarding school (ZuBS)

    We have recently got a new letter of request from ZuBS, in which the director is explaining the catastrophic lack of diapers for children and they are asking everybody who could help to buy them diapers.


  2. Bathtub and changing table needed

    “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.

  5. Shoes for Zurupinsk boarding school

    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!
