Kids Care was founded by Desi Lambina in 2013 to help the deinstitutionalisation of children in Bulgaria.
There are over 4,000 children living in institutional homes across the country. More than 90% of those children are not orphans; they have been driven into care homes because they are poor, disabled or from an ethnic minority. Many children are institutionalised because local schools are not adapted to teach children with physical or learning disabilities and local health services cannot provide specialised care. Social services are insufficient to meet the needs of poor families or protect children from abuse.
Children living in institutional homes are regularly underfed and neglected. In some children’s homes in Bulgaria, there is not enough living space. Children in institutions are not permitted to keep any personal belongings such as photographs and shoes. They are not given the necessary life skills to be on their own after leaving the institution. As a result, many suffer lifelong physical and emotional harm. This is a serious problem, on a big scale
Cids Care commitment is to invest 100% of the donations to find safe home environment for the children at risk and ensure they are surrounded with love and care.
Bulgarian-British Foundation "St. George" is organisation focused on raising funds mainly for educational initiatives.
