What are alternative forms of family care system from children? Who is ready to take a child to a family? About those whose story is worth telling. Legislative points were clarified by the heads of the Ternopil Regional State Administration's Children's Service and the Ternopil City Center for Social Services for Families and Youth.
"It is impossible to overestimate the importance of the cooperation of these participants in overcoming orphanhood in our country. And the coverage of such topical topics in the media is in dialogue, not controversy, is an indication that our society becomes more open and less biased towards orphans in general and different forms of placement of a child in a family in particular. After all, in fact, there are no other children, they simply come to our lives in different ways” - said Ilona Trikoz, director of the NGO "Family for the Child”
