An Orphan Smiles is pleased to provide an avenue of hope and relief for many orphaned children living at Mykolaivka Internat. Mykolaivka Internat is a “boarding school for orphans” ages 6 through 18 years. The majority of these children have been orphaned due to circumstances of economic poverty and/or the death of their parents. There are approximately 115 children who live and are educated at this institution.
