My family is me and my brother

 

Children twice suffer from domestic violence.

 

“My family is me and my brother. My mother works and father is not there”. For 7, 5 –year-old Arsen father is absent.

 

11-year-old Ani depicted her family where her father has devil’s ears and below the picture of her mother it is written “Dear mama”.

Here, the children are provided with free psychological services, food, education, possibility of going to museums and theater, etc.
