Brothers together, 2012

The boys live in an orphanage.


Igor is eighteen now and that is why he cannot be adopted.

Igor, as it often is with orphans, is older than his classmates. He is 14 and studies in the fifth grade. He never had to repeat a year – his educational ability is all right. Maybe, supportive lessons at home could help him catch up with his age mates. But first he needs to have such a home.

Igor is a true elder brother: patient, self-critical and responsible. He loves his brothers dearly, helps them with everything, even humors them. He also possesses a rather rare quality – the ability to analyze his behavior, to see his faults and the eagerness to improve.

A short while ago Igor went to the Crimea on a hiking trip organized by our foundation. Such a great time he had there! The whole world lies there for him, right outside the orphanage walls, where the boy doesn't often get to go.



Vladimir is the middle brother. They say that the life of middle children is the toughest: they have neither the rights of older siblings, nor the privileges of the younger ones. But Vladimir copes with it. He is modest, kind-hearted and scrupulous in fulfilling his assignments. He likes to play and craft. His favorite hobbies are paper-crafting and bead-weaving. These seem not very boyish, but Vladimir doesn't mind that. He also likes table tennis – luckily, there are enough tables in the orphanage.


Andrey, as a younger brother, is very fond of being the center of attention. He knows a lot for his age, and it's no wonder: Andrey has a faithful memory, he is very inquisitive and likes reading encyclopedias, children's ones for now.


If you are interested in adopting these or other children, please read the memo to the potential adoptive parents, guardians, and foster parents; you can also contact Children’s Affairs' service of the Zaporozhia State Administration by telephone (061) 239-01-56 and tell them the profile numbers of Igor (№0056262), Andrey (№0056260) or Vladimir (№0056261).

Other children who dream of finding a family

If for some reason you are currently not able to adopt (for example, you are a student and do not have a family of your own yet) you are still able to help children at a boarding school (an orphanage) with your financial support. Ways you can help include: planning and participating in excursions and trips for children; visiting a child in an orphanage; or helping purchase developmental toys, books, construction sets, and sports equipment.
