Support for Kids Organization was founded to provide help for state orphanages in the country of Georgia. Georgia is a small extremely independent country formerly part of the old Soviet Union. We are now plannig to help the kids from the war torn Ukraine.

Georgia is situated in Southern Caucasus mountains at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. It lies between the Black and Caspian Seas and is bordered by Turkey, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Russia as shown in the maps below.

 Georgia fought for and gained independence from the former Soviet Union  in 1991. Georgia has suffered from the breakdown of markets for the products she produced as part of the old Soviet Union. Georgia has worked hard to establish a new economic and political position in the world. Georgia has struggled with internal strife with the civil wars of 1992 dividing part of the country and again in  August of 2008 which was ended by an invasion of Georgia by Russian troops into Georgian sovereign territory. One of the results of this turmoil is displaced or orphaned kids who need our help.

The War in Ukraine  is an armed conflict in the Donbass region of Ukraine. From the beginning of March 2014, demonstrations by pro-Russian and anti-government groups took place in the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts of Ukraine. These demonstrations, which followed the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation, and which were part of a wider group of concurrent pro-Russian protests across southern and eastern Ukraine, escalated into an armed conflict between the separatist forces of the self-declared Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics and the Ukrainian government. Prior to a change of the top leadership in August, the separatists were largely led by Russian citizens.During the summer of 2014, Russian paramilitaries were reported to make up between 15% and 80% of the combatants.

Between 22 and 25 August, Russian artillery, personnel, and what Russia called a "humanitarian convoy" were reported to have crossed the border into Ukrainian territory without the permission of the Ukrainian government.  These events followed the reported shelling of Ukrainian positions from the Russian side of the border.  Head of the Security Service of Ukraine Valentyn Nalyvaichenko said that the events of 22 August were a "direct invasion by Russia of Ukraine". Western and Ukrainian officials described these events as a "stealth invasion" of Ukraine by Russia. As a result of this, insurgents regained much of the territory they had lost during the preceding government military offensive. A deal to establish a ceasefire, called the Minsk Protocol, was signed on 5 September 2014. Violations of the ceasefire on both sides were common. Amidst the solidification of the line between insurgent and government-controlled territory during the ceasefire,warlords took control of swathes of land on the insurgent side, leading to further destabilisation. The ceasefire completely collapsed in January 2015, with renewed heavy fighting across the conflict zone, including at Donetsk International Airport and Debaltseve. A new ceasefire, called Minsk II, was agreed to on 12 February 2015.
