Where are Ukraine's Vulnerable Children? 

Of virtually 8 million children in Ukraine, more than 100,000 are street children and 94,705 children live in residential care (including orphanages, shelters, and boarding schools). Both institutionalized and street children come from households where one or both parents are unemployed and are substance abusers. Children from disintegrating households either end up in institutionalized care, when social protection agencies remove them from families, or they take to the streets. Rarely do these children have a chance to be adopted by the responsible foster parents who are in a position to provide a safe haven and a quality education for them.
