News 19.9.2021: Egor is on his way to Kiev!
Viktoria Dobrzhynska is now traveling with Egor and a nurse on the night train from Nikolaiev to Kiev. The journey takes 9.5 hours for a distance of almost 500 km.
We estimate the cost of his 3rd trip to Kiev to the eye clinic to be €250.
Elena was born with multiple and very serious congenital heart disease (tetralogy of fallot and patent foramen ovale). After having been abandoned by her mother she stayed at Nikolaev’s regional hospital, from where she was transferred to NBH at the age of only 1 month.
As a reminder, Sofia underwent surgery in Kiev in August 2020. The operation was long and difficult and Sofia spent 20 days in intensive care, where she barely survived. Her brain was too badly affected and the girl has no swallowing reflex.

We are pleased to inform you that the incorporation of the new association Freunde von Svieta / Amis de Svieta 2.0 took place on June 26th 2021. Thus, there is again an active association with an active steering committee.
Unfortunately, even after the first 20 years of support, the situation in Ukraine is still such that the disabled children in the orphanages urgently need our help. Therefore, a group of 5 people have decided to found the second edition of Freunde von Svieta / Amis de Svieta. more
