Program «Adaptation of orphans-graduates to independent living»

Charity partnership “Helping Hands” continues a program to support orphans graduates. Their first academic year is coming to an end and many of them have already adapted to new student life and have overcome the first difficulties. The most urgent need is still lack of means for food – the student stipends are small and they are not enough to buy food. In March one of our sponsors, Ivan Radashevsky, decided to give a helping hand to orphaned boys in the city polytechnic college. He donated pizzas for 40 students living without parents’ support! Charity partnership “Helping Hands” believes that a new project can be launched to solve the problem of meals for these teenagers in need.
