Children's Embassy Adolphi Organization and was established by Mirjam and Boas Adolphi who have lived in Ukraine for over 13 years. The aim of their work is to help orphans, homeless children and other children at risk. The activities are funded by sponsors and grants. There is an office in Kiev where children can come and in Pisky, about 80 kilometers north-east from Kiev there is a rehabilitation center for homeless and otherwise disadvantaged children called Friends' House. There are currently 14 children living in the house including two babies. Before getting in this center most of the children were victims of domestic violence, torture, rape, incest, neglection. It often takes up to two years for them to recover and start living normally though mostly they still have problems with sleep, darkness and sharing their emotions and feelings. There are about 500,000 homeless children in Ukraine.
What is the Friends' House The Friends' House now shelters 14 children and Adolphi organization has worked with some of them for over 9 years. They transformed an abandoned kindergarden in Pisky to be able to accommodate the worst cases. There are several caretakers and also volunteers from Sweden and Finland come during summer and winter usually for one month. A part of effective help and therapy also provide two dogs - they play with the children (they're very good at football we found out!), keep them company when the kids are sad and particularly help the kids sleep. They go from bed to bed and lie down with the child until it falls asleep. The house is modest but cosy, the children can decorate their rooms as they please to feel at home, they all help with the housework and share duties.
