In Milan, Italy, the LR Global Kids Fund e. V. gives children with deprived backgrounds a second chance. Together with a national aid organisation, we support an orphanage that provides a home to children between the age of 0 and 6. The children accepted into the project have often experienced physical abuse and now need special care and support to cope with their traumatic past. Professional carers offer all-round support and thus give the children a real chance to develop well, allowing them to look forward to a promising future.
It is not uncommon for children to become victims of domestic abuse. A judge can order the children to be removed from their parents’ home and taken into state custody. It is important to make them feel at home, safe and protected – just like they should feel in a real family.
