" Lo, children are in heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward."
(Psalm 127, 3).
"As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.".
(Psalm 127, 4-5)
Ukraine faces demographical disaster
What do we see now?
Demographical disaster in Ukraine
Where does it leading to?
Rapid decrease of Ukrainian population up to 500.000 persons yearly: it means in the year of 2050 Ukraine will number 32million only , instead of 52 million compared with the year 1991;
Steadily ageing and gradual transformation to " a pensioner society";
Economy decline caused by lack of productive forces;
Loss of independence - up to vanishing from the map of the world.
What causes this disaster?
Unfavorable social-economic situation in Ukrainian society;
Ineffective approach to family problems from Ukrainian state.
Limited ability of young people to found and/or keep up their families;
Growth of homeless children number.
How do large families counteract?
advocate on our own example the idea of strong healthy large family;
render our countenance and social aid for needy large families and single mothers ;
carry out our own and shared social programs;
strive for getting special legal position for large families.
What does it result in?
acts as certain demographical catalyst;
lessens social-economic tension, reduces growth of homeless children number;
enhances prestige and recognition of large families as a special social formation;
attracts attention to the issue of large families from the state and communities.
Who are we?
The charity non-governmental organization - "Large Families of Zaporozhye" was founded in 1990 by four large families.
For now it is a big organization taking care of 1180 large families with more than 5200 children, i.e. 4 children per one family in average and of single mothers as well. The organization exists exclusively owing to membership dues of the same large families. The member of organization can be any large family (numbering at least 3 children) sharing the ideas of the organization, its Charter and taking feasible part in its every-day work. The organization has a number of own and shared social programs.
We advocate the idea of family values as the most important key for proper society functioning, since most problems in it, as known, take their origin in families.
We are open for discussion with all parties and organizations concerned, ready to answer your questions and share our experience with those who already have or are just going to set up a large family.
