  2. Egor and Sofia are on the way to Kiev

    We have finally have managed to organize Egor’s trip to Kiev. There was a delay because of lockdown in April. Yesterday evening he left Nikolaev with his nurse and today they arrived safely at Kiev’s institute of face and maxilla facial surgery. His operation is scheduled for the 16.06.21
    Because we always try to combine the trips, in order to save costs, we sent one more girl to Kiev – Sofia – who was operated at the same hospital in 2018 and needed a routine control. Doctors said the girl is doing very well, there is nothing to do at the moment, but she will need one more operation at the age of 8-9 years – approximately in 4 years time.
    Egor and Sofia are accompanied by 2 nurses.

  4. General Assembly 2021 & Liquidation of the Association

    Dear visitors of this website!

    As you may already know, the steering committee has decided to liquidate the association “Les Amis de Svieta” after 20 years. Grateful for what we have been able to achieve for the children in the last 20 years since its foundation, we are now laying down our activities. We have achieved a lot and without you – dear donors – this would not have been possible! However, the work in Ukraine is never finished. It goes on and on, new orphans are born, there is no money to take care of them and these little orphans still need our help urgently. There is still so much to do. more

  5. Egor has to go to Kiev for the second surgery

    Updated news 10.5.2021
    In September 2020 Egor had his 1st operation, which only partly “closed” his cleft palate. Now it is time for the 2nd operation. This operation was scheduled for May 17th, now it has been rescheduled for the June 14th. The reason is the latest lockdown in Ukraine. The hospital had to postpone all non-urgent operations.

    Financing has been secured by our friends from America from Svieta Inc.

    Thank you so much to America!
