In Vyshkovo, a village in Khust district, an unusual family lives in a large house: Livia and Yosep Kish raise ten children, aged 6 to 17, only two of whom are their biological childrens. The couple have adopted two and took custody of six kids.
Vyshkovo family-type children's home has been raising kids, who are left without parental care, since 2011. On Monday, the first of June, the large family was visited by the head of the head of Transcarpathian Regional State Administration Vasyl Hubal, who, on the occasion of Children's Day, brought the kids gifts and talked with children and parents.
Talking with the family, Vasyl Hubal noted that he knew the history of this family-run orphanage and was supported it while being the chairman of Khust district council.
According to the Head of the Service for Children in Transcarpathian region Svitlana Yakimelina, this FTH is one of the 39 in the region, in total 376 children, who, for whatever reasons, have been left without parental care, are raised in such families. Also, there are 60 foster families in Transcarpathia. The state finances such homes in full, appropriate services provide support and maintenance, and in general the practice of creation of FTHs has proven to be the most successful.
The head of the large family says: the work of a foster parent isa difficult and very responsible, moreover, it has no days off or holidays.
Vasyl Hubal wished the children to keep being cheerful and the parents - health and strength, and thanked them for their noble work. "I see that we are moving in the right direction, developing this form of upbringing, creation of family type homes is justified. Children get a better upbringing here, they are happier than in institutions. Because they have the most important thing - family and support, they are taught to live in the family, they get used to learn, have fun and work together. I see that children are in great conditions, they develop and feel warmth and care. I am delighted about Transcarpathian families who have made this choice and gave family life to disadvantaged children. I am grateful to them and encourage those countrymen, who think about doing the same and are ready for it, to do it - the state contributes, Transcarpathian government will certainly help, and God will bless for a good cause," - Vasyl Hubal said.
