Helping children with disabilities in boarding schools and orphanages is really hard work, but have you seen the faces of these children?
We talked to Inna Bezsmertna, a professional child psychologist, volunteer and co-
founder of the foundation that helps orphans to adapt and socialize Orphan Education Club Ukraine.
For many years, together with volunteers, I have been assisting children with disabilities of the Znamyansky orphanage III-IV profile of Kropyvnytskyi region. We go to them on holidays to greet, communicate, lay the foundations of family values, emotional healing and provide them with gifts and everything they need. Most people don’t understand that these children are the most vulnerable, because in addition to the absence of parents, they also have certain health problems and, accordingly, need special attention and support.
When we come with volunteers to these extraordinary children, we see their sad eyes and our hearts just break. But we find strength in ourselves and spend various themed evenings with them and try to be close to the best of our ability. Of course, our partners and the team help us a lot in this. Together, we try to improve the lives of children with disabilities for the better, because these children need help like nobody else.
