Boxes of Care for three thousand of Ukraine’s very youngest
The Biosphere Corporation, in collaboration with Children of Heroes Charitable Fund, is launching a new charity initiative to help those who need support the most – the very youngest of children who have lost their parents as a consequence of the war.
Children of Heroes already supports almost 4,200 children, some of whom sadly never got the chance to meet their fathers. Their mothers have no option but to raise them alone, through a war, because their husbands have been killed. The emotional and financial burden that these families face is often overwhelming and leads to a deterioration in their psychological condition. To support these mothers during the first six months, Children of Heroes will receive 3,000 care boxes (500 per month).
“For many years, Biosphere has been implementing a number of projects to support children and their families. It is important for us to take care of those who need it most and improve the lives of Ukrainians in general. Children are the future of our country, so we, as a socially responsible corporation, understand our goal in helping the very youngest Ukrainians,” says Yevheniia Matsibora, Head of Communications at Biosphere.
Each box contains a variety of products for personal hygiene and household care, including Smile Baby Antibacterial and Smile Baby “Aloe Extract” wet wipes, wet toilet paper, pocket handkerchiefs, cotton cosmetic pads and sticks, dish sponges and a special hypoallergenic detergent for washing children’s dishes, toys, vegetables, and fruits from Freken BOK Go Green.
“The youngest infant helped by Children of Heroes was only one day old when he came under our care. His father died defending Ukraine. Now it is our turn to support his family and do everything possible to ensure their happiness and well-being. For each of us, home is a place that gives us peace and tranquillity. That is why the boxes from Biosphere symbolize much more than just household products. They offer a sense of comfort and care, wherever these children may find themselves, whether that be in their own apartments or in temporary housing for IDPs,” says Antonina Holovach, Head of Non-Financial Partnerships.
