In 2014 we went to Belarus at the request of our friend Dima to see if we could facilitate his work with children given into care, to provide structured support, advice and assistance to families who either choose to adopt or foster these children.

This is a new project for us and currently revolves around providing training for the 50+ strong team of volunteers in Belarus on how to effectively deliver their objectives plus connecting them with UK leaders, experienced in the realities of fostering and adoption.

“It was so exciting to see such a young team of passionate volunteers striving to see children from difficult backgrounds flourish in a family environment. Partnering with them to take some of these children on summer camps was an undeniably humbling experience as we watched these children grow in self-esteem and confidence.”
