Workshop on restoration of smiles. How many time, happened, we, seeing in the street the next homeless child, hasty passed by, having pressed more strong a bag and a little hypocritically sighing. What to do, such … Someone thus had time to put time crumpled pour into the stretched hand, someone, consoling itself thought, that all it for a long time the adjusted business, simply turned away. Unfortunately, in a hastening stream is those who, understands very little, that in the street it nothing the child, and tries to undertake though any actions.
I do not know, whether Feodor Sitnik planned such development of the career-lodge in Kishinev and already more than 15 years to rescue Moldavian children from a fate to anybody unnecessary vagabonds. I know another - hundreds former homeless children thanking its help have found new families, have grown, became quite successful people.
The public organisation history «Salvati Copiii Moldova» does not differ abrupt turns. Â1994 to year have received from ïðèìýðèè a building in which gradually each of 300 square metres equipped under needs of children. Have typed staff, giving special attention to attraction of volunteers - road each copeck. Have involved the sponsor's organisations from Sweden, Italy, the USA (in Moldova interested for that moment was not unless an organisation building have released from the tax to the real estate), have equipped a life and have started to accept children.
If to distract on statistics the centre for a year accepts about 100 children age from 2 till 16 years. The destiny of each small inhabitant of the centre is difficult in own way, but practically for all children the meeting with Feodor Sitnikom put an end all troubles. As well as other similar establishments, the centre it is limited by a number of rules. For example, under the legislation, the child cannot live there to the majority, it should attach in a family or in children's home within 6 months from the date of reception. Certainly, situations happen different, and lawful half a year sometimes are illegally stretched - not to throw out on street if trustees did not manage to be found at once. First of all employees of the centre try suit the child in seven its relatives - if parents do not want and cannot, it can be the grandmother, the aunt, distant relatives. If such variant is impossible, for the child the reception family is looked for. In case of good luck, to newly made parents-trustees it is paid big enough åäèíîðàçîâîå the grant. At necessity, the centre can help the sponsored family with creation of own business, on it means too are provided. By the way, with definition of the child in a family organisation participation «Salvati Copiii Moldova» in destiny of the kid does not come to an end. Workers of the centre constantly visit the child and its trustees, help to adjust mutual relations, watch, that the child did not offend. For 15 years, Feodor Sitnik recollects, there were only three cases when the child took away from a reception family and returned in the centre.
It is difficult to understand, of what the boy who has lived the most part of the life in gates on what the girl who was not seeing in the life anything reflects, except drunk parents thinks. The fact that is literally in some weeks after hit in the centre, children vary. Them ùåêàñòûå ìîðäàõè start to sparkle toothless smiles, eyes get shine, and a life - sense.
