Karin Dom relies exclusively on donors for the equipment of the new complex.
With the construction of the new specialized center, the organization continues the work of diplomat and philanthropist Ivan Stancioff, who founded Karin Dom 26 years ago. Karin Dom is one of the first civil organizations in Bulgaria, which leads a fight against the institutional care of children with disabilities and which has a qualitatively new approach to children with special needs and their families. Ivan Stancioff began his work with the idea of creating a new model for services for children with special needs, so that the abandonment of these children in homes could stop. He managed to convince his family to provide the hereditary villa “Three Wells” in the Sea Garden of Varna for the purposes of the foundation, which he named Karin Dom – after his first cousin Karin, born with cerebral palsy.
