Sunflowers Family Aid Programmes

The Sunflowers Family Aid Programme provides help and support for families in difficult circumstances, especially those with sick or special needs children. We also help children to find foster homes in Belarus in cooperation with the local services. All too often children end up in State Orphanages due to neglect, alchol and/or physical abuse, abandonment etc..

This is Sasha and his little brother Zhenya who had been living in the social Orphanage in Luninets. They have been since fostered by a loving family in Belarus with the help of The Sunflowers. The Sunflowers Chernobyl Appeal, through our family aid programme helps their new family and encourages families in Belarus to foster children. They are very happy in their new home and have setteled in well with their new brothers and sisters.

There are hundreds of families like this in similar circumstances living in the area where we work. The Sunflowers family aid programme has emergency funds in place for such families and their children, and our Day Centres will be places of refuge and comfort and help to provide many essential services for them.

We also work closely with local school teachers to identify children who might be at risk of neglect or abuse. Children living in remote areas can sometimes be particularly vulnerable.
