We ask all of you who are not indifferent to the plight of a single mother, Nastya, and her infant triplets, to help us acquire a twin crib for the babies. He husband has abandoned her and their three children, and her relatives are not offering any assistance either. The family has been left without any means of support, as no help whatsoever is forthcoming from any relatives. The assistance provided by the government doesn’t even cover the cost of diapers and food, and the babies are in urgent need of cribs which their mother is unable to find the money for. The family is currently being assisted by the Caritas Kyiv Charitable Foundation.

Help us buy reeds (sticks), elbow crutches and walkers to older people.

The first snow has immediately reminded us about coming Christmas and more than 100 people who are living in expectations on Christmas Eve. Who are they, these 100 persons? They are people. They are skillful workers, they are once caring mothers and loving fathers, they are people who were not happy to meet a person to support them and to prevent their falling down. Regardless of their peculiarities, their attitude to the world and the God they always come for Christmas Supper. We believe it is our duty to share the bread we have with the neediest.
There is a wardrobe (closet) full of things in every home. You open it every day and wear clothes that you like. It is a natural desire of all people, despite their age or status. But, not all people have a full home wardrobe (closet). There are people whose wardrobe (closet) is empty! There are no clothes in it! That’s why in CF "Caritas Kharkiv" there is a place where all people in need can take clothes for free (for men, women, children). This place is called "Social wardrobe".

Can a child expect to have a new school-bag and good preparation to school if his parents are not able to provide him good food, medicine, hygiene items and clothes according to the season? There are 50 such children in need on our emergency list. It is indisputable fact that lack of school supplies affects the motivation of these children to learn, to believe in themselves and makes needy parents live in hopelessness. No child should be a victim of his own biography and has a right to get happy school memories.
