In order to provide security and basic living conditions for these unfortunate children, food and shelter, medical provisions, psychological support, guardianship services and eventually, when it is possible, family reunification procedures, Lifeline New York and the Bodossaki Foundation have joined efforts to raise the necessary funds.

Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine have wholeheartedly supported this humanitarian action.
