Support foster parenting!
For many children growing up in children’s homes, life in the warmth of a family is just a dream. Despite the efforts of the professionals working there, they lack the affection and closeness that only a family can give.
"A childhood without the love and support of a family leaves a permanent mark on a child’s development. So it is important for children who are not growing up with their biological parents to be placed in a caring foster family."
Aurelija (15) also agrees: “It would be better for children to have families to give them love and care, so they do not have to be in a children’s home – I would not wish that on anyone.” Find out more about her experience of being in a warm-hearted foster family here.
You too can help children who are spending their childhood in institutions to grow up in a warm foster family!
Help the boys and girls and donate for foster care so we can:
- encourage more people to become foster parents
- increase the quality of foster care
- supply didactic material for the activities taking place in foster care organisations
- provide professional support and regular education for existing foster parents so we can strengthen them further in their important role.
Besides on this web page, you can also make a donation with a payment slip or through internet banking to UNICEF’s account number HR1723600001501092524, reference number 1822-98.
With thanks from the bottom of our heart!
