About us

 

The Saint Andrew Charity Foundation is an international organization of a new type, which is based in Ukraine, and which began its activity in 2015. Liliya Watson is the founder and author of an early charity plan of the foundation in her homeland. The Saint Andrew Charity Foundation is a non-government and non-profit organization, established on the basis of goodness, equality of its members, legality, and publicity of its activities for the implementation of the goals stipulated by its Charter.

 

Our mission

 

With responsibility for our future - to bring up a new generation in love and anxiety.

 

Our aim

 

To engage the world community in the implementation of all the programs of the Saint Andrew Charity Foundation aimed at improving the social conditions of children around the world.

 

The directions of our activity

 

  • social protection and social welfare of children;

  • education;

  • health care;

  • ecology and environmental protection;

  • culture and art, protection of cultural heritage;

  • science and research;

  • sport;

  • human and citizen rights and fundamental freedoms;

  • development of international cooperation.

 

           The philanthropy of the Saint Andrew Charity Foundation is especially aimed at helping and protecting the most vulnerable social group - orphans, who were left without decent attention of the state. Against the background of recent events - state financing of the social sector has decreased by 7-8 times, which significantly worsened the material situation of specialized child care institutions. Our organization is making maximum efforts to create an enabling environment in which orphans can fully grow and develop. Kindness is the noblest weapon owned by the Saint Andrew Charity Foundation. Our team unites volunteers who use all their skills and knowledge to enrich the spiritual world of orphans and develop their creative potential. In this direction, a number of events and actions have been organized.

Founder's message


       As the founder of the Saint Andrew Charity Foundation, I know that happiness is not only in bank accounts or estates. I am convinced that the relief of moral or physical suffering, material loss, injustice leads to the discovery of the spiritual world of a person, to greater self-confidence, to a better life. My life story began from the famous Ukrainian city of Dnepropetrovsk (now Dnipro). After all, it was here that my happy childhood and youth passed away, my first steps to success were laid. My career is closely related to the modeling business. And this is frequent travel, new acquaintances and new impressions. Traveling, I saw how different people live in different countries. It is especially painful to understand the fact that many children, due to certain circumstances, are deprived of parental custody and care. Of course, I am not able to replace the moms for all those children. But it is in my power to help them to feel needed and protected in this world.


     Constant introspection, deep inner experiences, creative reflections inspired me to create a charitable foundation that will take care of the problems of children, and its name is Saint Andrew Charity Foundation. I firmly believed that under the supervision of St. Andrew, we will be able to create great good deeds. Creating a charitable organization, I want to bring goodness, spirituality, and light to the hearts of those who need it. Help us to care about those who need it. Help us to give hope to those who are desperate. Help the children to feel, that many people really care for them and for their successes and victories.


    We sincerely thank you for your trust and support!


    With kind regards, Liliya Watson, Honorary President of the Saint Andrew Charity Foundation.

How we work

 

Our work

 

              The starting point of our work is that the improvement of moral and physical suffering, material losses and injustice leads to the discovery of the spiritual world of a person, to greater self-confidence, to a better life. Our motto is: “Carry a piece of goodness, spirituality, and light to the hearts of those who need it without limits.” Therefore, we support our students so that they can live and feel our support on an ongoing basis. Especially we focus on social and health projects for children and young women, because they belong to the most vulnerable groups of people, and these activities in childhood are the greatest benefits in the long run.

 

Our cooperation with partners and volunteers

 

             Cooperation with local and international organizations and volunteers characterizes our daily work. It is based on mutual trust and is marked by open communication and transparency. All of our projects are carried out in cooperation with other non-governmental organizations, as well as local organizations, and from their rich experience, we receive immense help. The local organizations especially often draw our attention to shortcomings, thereby helping us to achieve our goal - to provide our assistance where it is most needed. In their turn, our partners take advantage of our many years of experience in the management of charitable projects. All our projects are guided by the staff of the Saint Andrew Charity Foundation. The knowledge of different specialists is united in this way, and our charitable projects work effectively in administrative, financial and legal matters. In addition, our administrative costs are reduced to a minimum, and all donations go directly to the projects and to our pupils.

 

Documents and Reporting

 

            The definition of the goals of a charitable project takes place already during its evaluation in collaboration with a partner. In addition, the use of funds is definitely accurate. During the term of the project, our partners should regularly inform us about current events. Similarly, it is a top priority for us to inform our partners and supporters. We regularly publish a newsletter and report on our charitable projects and initiatives on our website.

FEEDBACK 

What do people say about us?


"I found out about the Foundation by chance - the child was invited to a one-day camp in the Park of Partisan Glory. It was interesting how you can do something interesting for the children when they just got together. It turns out that the impossible does not exist :-) at least for those who undertake such a thing! Pleasant acquaintances, gambling competitions, snacks and birds of happiness))) Many thanks for such a holiday in the city center!"

“Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. First of all, I would like to express my great gratitude for the existence of such a foundation as the Saint Andrew Charity Foundation. Because in our time, many children are left without parental care, for various reasons, and children do not always have the opportunity to visit places of recreation and entertainment. We visited the «City of professions» and we really liked it)). Grateful to you for the anxiety and love that you give to children. May the Lord bless you and give you a reward for the job you do.”
