Ukraine has more orphanages than anywhere else in Europe. Some of these institutions are located in remote areas where they provide basic healthcare and education. Others are located in cities and towns where they offer a range of services.
In 2016, the government announced plans to close all but 60 of the country’s remaining 1,000 or so orphanages by 2020. This decision was made after years of pressure from international organizations like Unicef and the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child.
The government claims that it will be able to find homes for all of the children currently living in orphanages. However, critics argue that closing orphanages will only make things worse. They claim that the government should instead focus its efforts on improving the lives of parents who have lost their children.
What the Ukrainian government promised has not yet been realized, although many orphans have found families in family-type orphanages
There are two types of orphanages in Ukraine: state-run and private. State-run orphanages are run by the government and are usually located in large cities. They provide shelter and basic necessities to children who have no family members or guardians. Private orphanages are privately owned and operated. They offer similar services to state-run orphanages.
