Located in the city of Zaluchchia-Dolishne, in the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast region of Ukraine, this orphanage is home to 135 severely disabled orphans ranging in age from four to 35 years, with at least 80 individuals who are completely bedridden.
Zaluchchia orphanage is home to individuals with special needs. All individuals residing there have intellectual disabilities and/or psychological disorders. Most of them are physically handicapped, and cannot move independently or take care of themselves.
Our partnership with this orphanage began March 2016 and we hope to provide support with most needed items such as clothing for those aged four and up. Diapers and flannel fabric for blankets is always required. On average, the orphanage uses approximately 9,000 diapers per month. Waterproof mattress covers, sheets, and incontinence pads, need frequent replacement since they wear out so quickly with daily washing.
