Protection from exploitation

Zhenia, 19, sits on his bed at the ‘Way Home’ shelter for children who live or work on the streets, in the port city of Odessa, capital of the southern Odessa region of Ukraine. He was institutionalized as a small child following the death of his mother; he does not know his father. Zhenia is a drug user and is HIV-positive, but does not have access to antiretroviral (ARV) medications. He has been in prison three times for theft, and was once so badly beaten by the police that he sustained permanent injuries to one leg and his jaw, making it difficult for him to speak. The UNICEF-assisted shelter provides food, accommodation, literacy training, and an HIV/AIDS awareness outreach programme for children who live or work on the streets.
