Both of Valya’s parents are handicapped. Her father left the family. Valya had to spend most of her life in a boarding school (orphanage). Her mother has an alcoholic addiction and cannot take care of her and her sister Alyona properly. Despite all the afflictions this bright, open and really hardworking girl managed to keep her spirit strong. Now Valya is happy to live in The House of Hope. We helped her to get into a college. She is happy to feel a safe family atmosphere and to make her dream of acquiring a profession come true.
