In 1999 ROMAN orphanage was accommodated in two miserable old buildings for 200 children, aged 7-19, with no heating or WC and bathroom inside. We turned it into a cozy home with small group apartments with new bathrooms, dining rooms with kitchenettes where each group takes their meals, TV room and nice bedroom.
In 2006 “Theophano Popova” Home in STARA ZAGORA was almost in ruins, with broken windows and doors and just one bathroom. We set up small group apartments with nice bedrooms for 3-4 kids, living rooms, dining rooms with kitchenettes. We changed the old bathrooms and the laundry space into modern units and bougth a new industrial laundry machine. Now the children enjoy a beautiful home with all fascilities.
When we first visited PLEVEN medico-social home it was a miserable place with over 230 babies and disabled children. We renovated the Ward for heavily disabled kids, Ward 3 for small kids, the kitchen, the room for physiotherapy and set up a sensory room. The sanitary authorities closed down the kitchen in Pleven Home because of low standards and the kids were left without meals until we renovated it.
