"If we do not help the women and girls who are in difficult circumstances, the system of orphanages will be in effect for a very long time" - said Alexei Fedchenko, the coordinator of the Center, "Save Ukraine." He is also one of the founders of the ICO Center "ChildRescue Services"
Alexei leads the management of the project, "Center For Emergency Care For Mothers With Children." This Center is for female graduates of orphanages and pregnant women who have nowhere else to go. It is these young mothers who are in the area of greatest risk.
"If we do not take them in, they will be forced to abandon the child and we have become the buffer that prevents abandonment. War breeds orphans, illegitimate and abandoned children. What we will see in this scale in a few years time, we do not know, but we must be prepared to work with mothers," says Alexi Fedchenko, "These crisis Centers are working across the country, especially on the edges. The plans of the organization - creating the Center For Combating Violence, which over time can be victims of violence as well as pregnancies resulting from rape. The purpose of the ICO staff, "ChildRescue Services" is to save the lives and health of unborn children and to save babies from orphanages.
"We support women with children and help them get firmly back on their feet. It is a comprehensive system of measures to prevent child abandonment in Ukraine" - says Alexi Fedchenko - "We refuse to send children to orphanages and gather resources from the communities. We support families and family care of children"
