I'm running for the dreams of children-orphans. Mykola Kolodiazhnyi


started 7.3.2017

Project is realized by
Charity Fund "Happy child"

Nova Poshta Kyiv Half Marathon it is my first time I am going to run for many little orphans who dream of their loving family.They dream of mother's tender hands, caring, reliable father's shoulder instead of cold walls of the orphanage. I am going to run, so every child in Ukraine has his\her mom and dad.

The “Happy Child” charity foundation has launched a competition called “The Keys to Family Happiness” to inspire people to give orphans their family warmth and care. The competition picks the most interesting and unusual stories of foster families in Ukraine. "The Keys to Family Happiness” competition has been held for the third time. Last year eighteen families from different parts of Ukraine became its participants and represented their stories about themselves in two categories: “Video story” and “Photo story”.

The story of each family is unique. These stories show hard, sometimes tragic lives of children abandoned by their dads and moms and a small feat of new parents (or even one parent) who welcome orphans into their family.

For instance, the Braginetz family adopted little Afro-American children whose father was arrested for selling drugs and mother died due to a drug overdose. The children became street waifs. However, these children were blessed with Alexey and Elizaveta who became their new loving parents.

Natalia Bulba is a former orphan and knows the tough reality of orphans very well. Natalia dreamt of adopting an orphaned girl since her childhood. Today she takes care of nine children from the orphanage! Natalia is going to a new trial - there is a war not far away from her home. She believes that love and kindness will conquer everything.

The participants of the competition show that you can always create your own destiny and make your life as well as lives of other people better regardless of the situation in the country, fears, and doubts. Our competition aims to remind that family, close people and love are the most important things that should be in everyone’s life.

The winners will be awarded valuable gifts and diplomas and special prizes in shape of a traditional Ukrainian symbol of happiness and well-being of the home - a horseshoe. The rest of the families who have submitted their stories to the competition will receive consolation prizes and certificates of participation. There are currently up to 120 children who need parents in the Zaporizhzhia region. The "Happy Child" charity foundation is one of the most reliable and best partners for regional affairs services of children in the promotion of family placement of orphans and children deprived of parental care.

The "Happy Child" charity foundation sincerely hopes that demonstrated stories will become a source of inspiration for those who decide to make an important and noble step - to welcome abandoned children into their loving families.
