SOCIAL CARE CENTER
house of mercy
Every single child must have a family, be surrounded by love and care from the very moment of being born into our World. That is our BIG DREAM, but unfortunately, not all children in Ukraine live in families. We speak about orphans and children deprived of parental care.
At the beginning of 2017 there were over 2 200 orphans and children deprived of parental care in Zakarpattya,
The term “orphan” applies to the children who lost their parents, but currently another term “social orphan” has appeared as social phenomenon caused by disregarding or abandoning by parents of their parental duties as to their under-age children.
Perpetration by parents of unlawful offences and criminal activities, neglecting of their parental duties, abusing of alcohol, drugs, brutal and cruel treatment of their children are the main reasons children become orphans while their parents are alive.
Social Care Centre for Children “House of Mercy“
It the first pilot project implemented by the Charitable Foundation “House of Mercy” in cooperation with Norwegian Humanitarian Organization “KRK-Ukraina”.
The foundation acquired the premise at the address:
