Project description
This home is for children aged 0 to 6 years and is divided into two living rooms. The group of children aged 0-30 months and the group of children aged 30 months to 6 years. Children live at the home until they can return to their parents or a family to adopt them. A psychologist and a doctor examine children at the entrance. If necessary, the therapist organizes activities with the child to stimulate self-development. The orphanage has special areas for exercise.
