The scheme of work "Windows of Life" is simple. Mother simply puts the child in the window and rings the bell. After some time, the employee takes the child. After that, the state begins to take care of the baby.
According to the chief neonatologist Makeyevka Irina Shelyashkova, “Window” was created so that unfortunate parents would stop leaving their children in landfills, park benches and in the forest.
By the way, the first reception of children in Ukraine was opened in Lviv in 2009. Now similar institutions exist in Kiev, Vinnitsa, Ternopil, Rivne, Lutsk and Makeyevka.
