116 Ukrainian minors placed with Flemish foster parents

116 Ukrainian minors placed with Flemish foster parents

Borys and
Pavlo are among over a hundred Ukrainian children who have been placed with Flemish
foster parents since the start of Russia’s further invasion of Ukraine in
February. 

Borys, aged
16, and Pavlo, aged 17, are friends.  From
Kyiv they travelled to Belgium as unaccompanied minors without their
parents.  It was quite a trip and on their
arrival in Belgium they were stranded at Brussels South Station where they had
to spend the night.

The station
is a major transport hub and where international trains arrive.  Unlike in several other countries Red Cross
officials are not ready to support Ukrainian refugees around the clock and the
two friends spent their first night in Belgium sleeping rough in the station.  But fortunately, this is a story with a happy
end: Borys and Pavlo have now been placed with Flemish foster parents. Of
course, their story is not really at an end yet.  They don’t know how long they will have to
stay, but they and their parents can rest assured that they will receive proper
care.
