Center Needs


Today there are 248 children in the educational and rehabilitation centre, 72 of them are deaf and others have gastrointestinal tract diseases. Most of them go home for weekends. But there are also pupils who spend all the time in the centre – mostly they are orphans and children deprived of parental care. There are 12 real orphans. The children who live in the villages of Zaporizhzhya region also stay here.

The rehabilitation centre has massage and treatment rooms, isolation room (for sick children), as well as rhythmic and computer rooms.

Rhythmic room

A kindergarten for children with gastrointestinal tract diseases was built on the basis of the centre. A group of deaf children studies here.

When pupils have free time they attend classes of folk dances, embroidery, culinary, hairdressing and tourism.

The centre “Dzherelo” managed to repair a gym, so children are waiting for interested people, who could train them different sports.
