Right?! that was extreamley disturbing.....i wish these children an early death so they can quickly enter the presense of the Lord Jesus and his glorious kingdom where they will have perfect immortal bodies and minds and love like they have never experienced before. also, there are PLENTY of documentaries about Iraq...Maybe you should be more compassionate for OTHER people in the world and not just your own people. - Ive never ever considered eating human flesh! Years of Turkish invasions and rape of the nation has left a deep routed scar on the internal bulgarian mentality, self belief and confidence and ability to identify itself strongly as a nation. It is part of the problem in the low developpment of the coutry in different sectors. I'm sure there are a ton of people WORLDWIDE who would VOLUNTEER to take care of this situation. She replied a short while after and was so humble and lovely. Least important - "our" system. I watched this a few days ago and I can't wrap my head around it anymore than I can figure out what I can do to help. And little Vasky tore at my heart strings. Orphanages are no longer common in the European community, and Romania in particular has struggled to reduce the visibility of its children's institutions to meet conditions of its entry into the European Union. This documentary made my heart bleed. They know only what they have been taught - by the director. Everyone is responsible for these children. I cant remember the date? However, every time a sick child appears in the classroom his or her classmates verbally abuse them, so they stop going school, kindergarten or nursery, their symptoms worsen and it usually ends tragically.

Although a Bulgarian I have to say that I was shocked and stunned and (I have no words to express my feelings) when I saw for the first time this movie about a year ago. Such a cold and emotional story. This made me sick to my stomach, It is scary that there are people out there able and willing to treat children this badly, its disgusting! Few of the children can talk, not necessarily because they are unable but rather because no one has ever taught them how. It's amazing to think how far as a world we've come with technological advances, yet we still do not have anything in place that teaches people how to notput themselves into these situations. I certainly would have loved to have missed all the horror that I have experienced in this life. contributing to the admission of children to orphanages is poverty. The home is for children aged 3 to 7. Today, between 2,500 and 4,000 children are still sleeping rough. I am a 23 year old Canadian woman. The proof is in the pudding - it has been closed. Primarily orphanage, although Bulgaria is in process of closing their orphanages in favor of family style group homes and foster care. I find utterly hypocritical to make a documentary of what happens to abandonned children in eastern Europe when every other capitalist government just won't allow any journalist investigation in their own country. Makes me appreciate being in a normal country. Love one another. Fire the damn lot of them and bring in a whole new crew of people who ACTUALLY CARE and VALUE HUMAN LIFE to help rectify this situation and provide a safe environment for these children . poor, poor children to be abandoned by their parents and then locked up at night probably without any food or water/drinks. Poor kids... "One drop of water raises the sea." These women have far too many small, sick, helpless, children to take care of. One of the most important conditions for children to develop properly is loving and safe environment! Another Article "Why Is Adoption so Expensive? "Cropsey" I carelessly thought that it would be about Romania - and the Chescekaou (sp) regime, which I was familiar with. I frankly have nothing positive to say about Eastern Europe as a whole. How can the government allow such things happen to poor mentally ill children! This childrens are beautiful.. i would love to help them.. but i know that i can help a lot of more childrens here... i love when Didi.. said. Knowing that she will only mentally deteriorate is crushing. Many of these children suffer from severe metal toxicity in addition to malnourishment.

The case of Mogilino resembles the campaign publicising the conditions in the Romanian orphanages in the early 1990s. a friend of mine insisted i watch this that it will change ny life and i believe it has?? BULGARIA ADOPTION OVERVIEW As Bulgaria moves towards placing more children into foster care while they wait for their forever families, AGCI supports this transition by ensuring that the children still in institutions receive the best possible care. the director should be sacked and never ever ever be allowed to work anywhere, what a disgusting, disgraceful human she is! - I would willingly have my life wrecked if I thought I could make a difference to these kids & adults. I can't believe no-one has taken the time to take the children out into all that space surrounding the building. I an a professional that has worked many years with severely handicapped children in institutions. How dare they treat these children with such disgust! Is there anything your life so important? Many British, Bulgarian and international charities intensified their work effort to solve the problem with abandoned children in the country. The children were never given fresh food and the care workers would feed these poor blind children and not even give them a chance to bloody swallow the food! This is by far, the saddest documentary I've ever seen...and I've seen many, such as "born into brothels", "abandoned children", "sold into slavery". And DON'T emphasize the fact that Bulgaria has had 20 years to recover from communism because it is exactly the greed and pure prostitution perpetuated by capitalism which has sold out the Bulgarian people, their beautful land, beaches and resources. But, I am just axin' If you needed to eat and there was another tribe of humans available... Why not? sadie. It is so every where else in the world, not just Bulgaria. I can't stop crying. My heart broke for Didi. That being said, I was shocked that the children were in such horrible shape. Have I not commanded you? And where are you??? What is the deal? Oh my goodness. However, in response to anyone that pops off with the s tupid "Eastern Europe is a hellhole" kind of rubbish, you probably shouldn't be watching these kind of documentaries. She is actually there!She is dealing with it every day..and there are 75 children! Last night, when I stopped because I couldn't take it anymore, I cried until my head hurt. With 172 staff who do STUFF ALL and get paid for it. that woman that is talking about to didi about her hais was a caretaker, maybe learn to read subtitles? The home study process (or home study for expats) is meant to prepare and educate parents about risk factors and situations that may be unknown. AND Blaming the carers for not doing a good job - i still cannot believe those words came out of her mouth - i am still just so disgusted. then i have to go through all your stupid posts and change the swear words manually...so i dont appreciate you swearing 100 times in your posts...also you are using the swear words wrong. but instead they were beating them and ignoring the fact that these children needed high standard care! When I was around 5, she would take me near the place (there was a nice long deserted industrial parking space where i could freely ride my bike and she could sit down under the shade and knit; the view towards the rest of the city was also fenomenal). We’d like to remind our parents that growing up in an orphanage isn’t easy. The Social Care Home - where 75 unwanted children are growing up - is the main employer in the small village of Mogilino. I was talking to her after all... And as far as the doumentary goes... *shrug* what about are you gonna do? When will "these women start thinking about their actions?" These were children as old as 15-16 b… When will "those men" start? We all know it is going to sink! It broke my heart, but it also gave me the most phenomenal inspiration and aspiration to do more, to do something to help. Bed ridden 24/7 with sores all over their bodies. My heart aches for them. C'mon! The people that work there are just happy to have a job and probably earn a pittence and probably do exactly what is expected of them because they are not trained or taught to think or hope that these children stand a chance to support themselves independently in society. In a New York minute... my wife is all important. I feel ashamed. I will never forget these poor children. What a f***ing news , f*** Britain f*** that dirty queen . This means nothing..these children will never be happy like that. Posting negative comments here, means you know about it, you know about these children and what have you done about it?

We’re delighted to announce that the Zlatica orphanage in Bulgaria has now closed for good after the last child living there – a five-month-old baby girl – left this week. And Jamie, I am behind you 100% You don't have to apologise for anything you said. Just to think that Bulgaria has become part of the European Union makes me hate the European Union where I live in more than ever before. That's a lot more than an economic problem due to a lack of funding, it's abuse--and it is intentional. These children need love, attention, education, nourishment, and interaction. To hell with them and the satanic horse they rode in on to this planet! She is now living with a family who can give her the individual love and attention that all children need to thrive and be happy. You’ll walk out of the orphanage with them and go to Sofia (the capital) for the remaining 5 – 7 days. I don't understand this! The children were never given the chance to learn, or laugh and were never shown affection! It is good to be informed but it is also hard to know the sadness of some peoples lives!

The Haitian government estimates less than 15 percent of the 760 orphanages in Haiti meet government standards, and that 140 should be closed immediately due to poor living conditions. This tears me up inside and angers me so bad. I am looking in to how I can help, now! Children born during these years are popularly known as decreței. I knew that the policy in the former Soviet countries was one that commonly removed its invalids so that society would not be burdened with seeing them in daily life. Our prayer is that the parents whom we serve will be understand these risks and see their adoption process as the intervention that reverses this cycle for the kids. The biggest factor that stands out here to my eyes is that the director is probably a political appointee. Oh the ignorance!!! No, of course, you wouldn't eat your daughter. Bulgaria has more institutionalised mentally and physically disabled children than anywhere else in Europe. These is deeply touching. At 1:21:06-1:21:13, when Slavka is dancing and singing to some music, the song fades out but not before transitioning to an elderly woman who exhibits symptoms manifesting lack of muscular control. After looking after young children since I was a child myself, even I knew then - and obviously know now that children need patience and time. Blaming it on someone is like throwing a stone in the sea. go to help the closest children.. This is absolutely disgraceful..It is straight out child abuse.. thanks Sarah! As i have always said humanity is so inhumane and wisdom can only be heard by the wise! May "God" have mercy on their putrid souls because I surely cannot muster any for them. Painfully heart wrenching! It does them no good & I feel helpless. The fact that the journalist relates to Bulgaria as being a modern EU country is not entirely fair, though. I thank Vlatko for bringing this to our attention, I would never have known such atrocity is happening in Bulgaria if it wasn't for this Documentary, despite having BBC at my fingertips (so to speak) I guess I have been ignorant. However, would I kill and eat another human being for her welfare? (if you were very very hungry)? Help them! Egocentrism, and that is what we live everywhere, not only in Bulgaria. I dont see any toys! Why is this happening?? and good for you if you are helping the childrens.. AirBnB in Sofia. [Disclaimer: The conditions in the Pleven orphanage are the exception in Bulgaria.

P.S I am perusing a degree in neurology and i believe science is the way to cease this misery, combined simply with compassion and care for those who are not as fortunate as we are. Or sponsor him. I see. He understands so much. I saw it a few years back and it has stuck with me since. Bulgarian Orphanage Conditions. Possibly the most horrific doc I have watched so far.... heartbreaking, disgusting and really sad. The government should be ashamed of the treatment of these children and adults. This kind of treatment and far worse is being carried out everyday in every country no matter what mask that particular country attempts to place on it. To see the conditions these children are forced to live in, the laughable "care" they receive, and malnutrition and sickness that result, just absolutely breaks my heart. To those who say ''Eastern Europe'' I ask what do you mean by that. Most likely being told continuously that it's normal, and that there is nothing they can do. I have a holday home in Bulgaria and visit our local orphanage with my own children each time we are in Bulgaria. I have not yet watched the follow-up video - thank you Fi-licious - but I can still say that the real blame here is on the director and whoever appointed/supervises her. follow the social rules - it's not hard to see why this children you are filthy humanbeings that shouldn't be allowed to breathe. It's inhumane and I'm extremely outraged by this whole situation. The poor old lady who is taking care of them is not enough. You don't say what country you are from, nor do you know what country I live in, so there is no "our" system. But, my wife is my biological/sexual mate. i can not believe what i have just seen :( i have no words for the sheer anger i feel towards this disgusting display of so called help...watching those horridly fat women stuffing slop into those poor starved childrens mouths just made me sick. No happy circumstances lead to kids living there. Do you think donating a dollar once will help these children? I just want to have a think before i start looking for 'Band-Aids'! Thise heartless women, hwo take care of thise children should be thrown in jail for life!!! "Her name is Sabine" It is not the blame of the care-staff nor of the parents. As if you were ever in the types of situations they had to face. Historically, an orphanage is a residential institution, or group home, devoted to the care of orphans and other children who were separated from their biological families. As a care worker myself I could not begin to imagine what goes through these peoples heads, how are they getting away with such behaviour? jesus.. Dear god mitsy,i hope you are not a parent,if you think putting a child in a place like that is protecting them.It worries me with your attitude that your are allowed to work with handicapped children.Our health system must be in nearly as bad a state as theirs.Didi was a normal girl going in there but being surrounded by children who chances were just as normal as any child went slowly mad due to lack of love,care and attention.No toys,no love and nothing to feed their young absorbing minds.Sad sad sad,shame on us all for allowing this to happen ANYWHERE.
