Orphanage #34 

Age group:  7 years- 17 years
Number of children:  160

Orphanage #34 is one of the neediest institutions in the Odessa region. The facility houses 160 children aged 7 to 17 years. The living conditions are squalid, and the young people are offered a very minimal education. UAC does what it can to supply the orphanage with the most basic needs such as proper nutrition, clothing and health care.

The children at Orphanage #34 are considered to be mentally disabled. Their conditions vary widely. There are some who have learning disabilities such as dyslexia, and others with varying levels of autism or Down syndrome.

Funding is needed to develop and run vocational training programs for the young people at Orphanage #34.
