Family Support Foundation «The Only Life»

We help a foundation that helps families facing very difficult life situations.
Why we help Family Support Foundation «The only life»
In Russian philanthropy, this fund has occupied an almost unoccupied niche – help families in difficult life situations. It supports very young mothers, single mothers with many children, children who have lost parental care, parents who have lost their homes, families with extremely low incomes. These categories of people can be described this way:

«There is a family living somewhere in a suburb. There are a lot of children in the family. Some of the kids were taken to the shelter... Either there is a father or not. If there is – he drinks for sure. These children are untidy dressed and eat something disgusting. The mother is every now and then pregnant. The grandmother is old and sick. They have no work and no support. Benefits are very low. But somehow these people live…»

In fact, they live very badly. And Family Support Foundation «The only life» helps them
