Providing financial assistance in the spheres which, in our opinion, are not funded enough by the state (sports goods, educational games, items for leisure activities, education, expensive medical examinations and treatment of orphans).
The "HelpUs" project: "Happy children - happy adults"
We believe that over time, this project will turn into a foundation to help and support adults all over Ukraine who happen to be in a tough situation. We believe that there are many people who understand as well as we do that there can be no happy children without happy adults.
BASIC WORK PRINCIPLES OF "HAPPY CHILD":
The Foundation submits full reporting about donations received. Special-purpose donations are used only according to their intended purposes. We try to minimize the fund expenses and most of them are covered by our regular contributors. Salaries of the fund staff are fixed and do not exceed the average salary in the city of Zaporozhye.
The Foundation is a non-political one, completely independent from large corporations, political parties, and government structures.
The Foundation tries to adhere to the principle of the Bible, "When you do alms, let not your left hand know what right hand is doing". At the same time, we try to attract media attention to the problems of needy children, so we invite the journalists to some of our actions.
The Foundation is a non-profit organization and does not try to use its non-profit status for indirect benefit of the members of the fund.
Foundation staff includes people of faith, though of various religions. However, our belief in common spirituality that unites all human beings does not allow us to abuse the trust of our sponsors.
The Foundation is funded through donations of ordinary citizens, organizations, and other grants.
The Foundation follows to the principles of "smart charity" which strives for elimination of the causes of problems to the extent possible rather than merely treating consequences. We do our best to ensure that every donated hryvnya/dollar/euro brings maximum benefit.
Donating to the foundation accounts is not our prime purpose or a way to show how great we are. Donors are offered direct ways to help a needy child or orphanage, as we do not hide accounts details or addresses of parents or orphanages. In this case, we provide information service only.
We happily communicate and cooperate with everyone who wants to make the world a better place, changing it to what it should be. If you wish to join our team, please read the article "We need volunteers!" and follow your heart.
