Foster families in Cherkasy region receive all necessary housing arrangements

13 June 2023
The Foundation continues to provide vital assistance to Ukrainian families.

Mykola and Natalia Rudnyk are fostering eight children, aged from 7 to 17. The family resides in the village of Hromy in the Uman district of Cherkasy region. In the early days of the full-scale invasion, even former foster children who had already left the foster family and started their own families returned to their foster parents’ home. In total, 20 people gathered in the household and lived in the basement of the parents' house for a month. While the shelling continued above, an explosion damaged the roof, causing it to leak. The Rudnyk family reached out to the Foundation for assistance with materials to repair the roof. In addition to modern roofing, the Foundation provided kitchen appliances, dishes, and bedding. The children received tablets and phones for studying.

Upon the personal request of foster families, the Foundation's team strives to provide everything families need.

Thanks to our foreign partners, our work continues. Assistance has already been received by Kyiv, Zhytomyr, and Chernihiv regions. After Cherkasy region, the most essential household items will be provided to foster families in Odesa, Kharkiv, and Dnipropetrovsk.

Thanks to our joint efforts of the European Investment Bank (EIB), by the end of the year, 2,000 children from 280 foster family homes will be provided with everything they need.
