Siberia: the sleeping landAdd to Lightbox Download
IMG_0020 RUSSIA. Western Siberia. Jurga. 2015. A girl at the Caritas Child center “Happy kids”. Caritas opened the center ten years ago. About 20 russian catholic, orthodox and buddhist children (aged 5-16) tend to attend several courses such as Russian language to prepare public school, ethic, cooking and theatre. Two pedagogists and five social workers look after them, they cooperate very closely with the public school. Some children need psicological support to deal with family problems such as poverty and alcohol. Some families live in a tiny room with three or four children. Caritas provides used clothes to the families too. Jurga is a small city with around 85,000 inhabitants, it is located in the Kuzbass region, along the transiberian railroad, about 100 km from Tomsk.
