Hard Life of Ukrainian Street Children (33 pics)

Posted in Pictures   11 Aug 2010   / 16965 views

Journalist David Gillanders and broadcaster Rasmus Paulsen visited Ukraine in February-March of 2010 to make a photo reportage on Ukrainian children living on the streets. They spent 2 weeks in Odessa in the circle of a small group of abandoned children.

 

In the south of Odessa, a small group of 7 children live in the basement of an apartment complex. The access there is only through the ventiduct, which is even small for the children and they have to squeeze through it. They managed to connect to the electrical panel of the building to have some light in the basement and to use their electric stove. To keep warm, they press against the pipeline, which runs hot water. All seven are infected with HIV and take drugs every day. To get some money these kids steal, beg and collect scrap metal.

Very sad..

Those pictures do not tell the real story of how difficult it is for homeless children in the former communist nations. You can watch "The Children of Leningradsky (2005)" over at Google video. After watching that, you will realize how easy even the homeless have it in the U.S..

We work with such children in Ukraine. What's fantastic is that, although they are difficult (brutal, agresive...), they are also... just sweet children, when you scrap the harsh surface a little bit.
