Russia ranks first in the world in terms of the number of abortions. The “Women for Life” Foundation is working to change these statistics. “All three of my pregnancies, I heard arguments against the birth of my kids and defended their right to be born,” Natalya Moskvitina, head of the foundation, shares her personal experience.“I was scared and lonely. Our charity foundation was created so that no woman will ever experience anything like this."
The “Women for Life” Foundation implements more than a dozen projects that allow the organization to respond to almost any request of a pregnant woman who found herself in a difficult life situation. The charity organization provides financial and medical assistance, legal advice, helps with food, things, and, if necessary, can provide temporary housing. The most in-demand service is psychological counselling. Using the fund's website, you can have almost immediate access to it. Another popular area is food assistance. The free food packages distributed by the foundation include pasta, milk, sugar, cereals, vegetable oil, flour, stew, sweets, cookies, as well as baby food and juice.
The organization has a volunteer team of about 5,000 people. “Thanks to caring people who cooperate with our foundation, 1961 babies were saved,” says the foundation's website.
