CHICHO foundation helps children in orphanages lead a better life since 2008.
There are currently more than 20,000 children in care in Bulgaria. Some are disabled and their parents could not care for them at home because of their serious illness, others were abandoned because their parents could not afford to support them.
All of them need professional attention, education, rehabilitation and most of all care and LOVE.
All of them need a better chance.
CHICHO aims to provide short and long-term aid, by investing in projects that improve their everyday life, provide essential supplies and quality education and help the children integrate into “real life”.
Why We Need You
With your help we can give more children the chance for a better future.
Thank you very much for your support.
Ilia Bojilov - chairman.

Meet the kids from Chicho House
Some years ago CHICHO renovated a house donated by the municipality of Gorski Senovets to be renovated and appropri-ated for the adolescents leaving the care home after turning 18. It provides shelter and serves as a safe transition into adulthood.
