author: Elmira Sabirova

The wardship department of Ufa initiated a new social project “I Need a Family”, called to help the children-orphans, deprived of house warmth and comfort, to find foster parents.

The special chapter of the department's site contains photos and information of the kids, need family placement.

At the same time about 500 orphans live in local children's homes and asylums of Ufa. At present time four forms of family placement for orphans are actively developed in Bashkiria: adoption and three forms of wardship – the gratuitous wardship, when the tutors aren't paid for children-rearing and the wardship, registered on the contractual terms in the form of either a foster family or patronage rearing (registered on the base of children's homes).
